Actor Will Smith and comedian Chris Rock have been dominating social media trends and making headlines ever since the former slapped the latter on the stage of the 94th Academy Awards held on Sunday night. The incident occurred after Rock, who was introducing the award for Best Documentary, poked fun at Smith’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith about her hairdo. For unversed, Pinkett is suffering from auto-immune disease alopecia which results in hair loss. Reacting to the incident, actor Kangana Ranaut called Will Smith, a Sanghi. In its literal sense, 'Sanghi' means someone who is a member of the Indian right-wing organisation RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh) or its affiliates. However, it is also used for those who agree with their political ideology.

The pictures were respectively captioned, "Pooja bhi karta hu, jaap bhi karta hu, kahi devta na ban jaau, isiliye faaltu jokes par haath saaf bhi karta hu (I pray, I chant hymns also. So that I don't become a God, I also slap people on hearing useless jokes)."
Sharing her thoughts on the meme, Kangana wrote, "Hence proved Will is Sanghi...woh bhi bigda hua like me (he is also spoilt like me)."
