The Rajasthan Royals (RR) eliminated a vital qualifier against the Gujarat Titans (GT) on Tuesday, losing their chance to qualify for the IPL 2022 final. Rajasthan lost to Gujarat, who finished first in the standings in his maiden season. Rajasthan took to Twitter after losing to Gujarat in Qualifier 1 to share a meme from the popular Bollywood movie “Border” starring Suniel Shetty. The post went viral almost immediately on the microblogging platform.
In the image shared by Rajasthan on his official Twitter account, Suniel Shetty can be seen singing an excerpt from the song “Sandese Aate Hai”. “Main Wapas Aaunga, Main Wapas Aaunga (I will return, I will return)”, the caption of the post read. The post has garnered nearly 30,000 likes since it was announced earlier this morning with fans flooding the comments section with jokes and memes.

In response to the social media post, Rajasthan Royals shared another meme from the same movie with Sunny Deol. Earlier this month, the Royals released a video of Trent Boult band members Jimmy Neesham and Daryl Mitchell swimming in a popular Bollywood track. In the video, the three players recreate the song “Aye Meri Zohrajabeen” from the popular Bollywood movie called Phir Hera Pheri.
The Royals are expected to have another chance to play in the final as they face the Eliminator winner between Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in Qualifying 2 on 27 May.
