When it comes to short funny stories, SaleBhai Khatta Meetha is the perfect balance of humour and news. From politics to Bollywood, sports to environment, it mirrors the happenings around us in delightfully punny creatives. These topical posts have published across our social media platforms since our launch in September 2015. They are a way of engaging the brand with customers on issues that matter to them. Though these posts go beyond business, we subtly convey what our company stands for through the punchlines.
While drawing inspiration from the Amul girl*, this series has found its own niche of popularity online - some of its posts performing much better than the former. From the Ranbir Kapoor-Katrina Kaif break up, Sonu Nigam's impromptu performance over the PA speakers on a Jet flight, and Leonardo DiCaprio's first Oscar win to the demonetisation controversy and Donald Trump being elected President of USA, 2016 was an eventful year. All these and more found their way into our collection. Take a look at the top posts from this year.
