As per reports in a leading daily, during the episode, the 'Kahaani' actress revealed to Amit Ji that a lot of memes are created on the show.

Talking about it, a source stated to the daily, "Bachchan said he did not know what a meme was. He even asked her how it is pronounced following which Vidya read some of the memes. His reaction was priceless — he not only laughed out loud, he said he is mighty impressed."

The source further added, "In fact, after the episode was shot, he was gracious enough to ask the makers to send him some memes, so that he could put it on his blog."

That’s quite an enlightenment for Big B, isn’t it?
