‘Mahabharat’s Bhishma Pitamah With Air Cooler:
‘Oh Bhai Maaro Mujhe’: These were the hilarious memes making rounds on Twitter, after Twitterati spotted Mahabharat’s ‘Bhishma Pitamah’ aka Mukesh Khanna with air cooler, during one of its episodes.
Social media and digital tools combined have made it a child’s play, irrespective of one’s age, to revisit the past and find something to laugh about. A similar thing happened when after ‘Game of Thrones’, Twitter found another blunder, this time with Mahabharat’s Bhishma Pitamah sitting across an air cooler.
Twitterati had a field day after noticing ‘Bhishma Pitamah’ (played by Mukesh Khanna) in ‘Mahabharat’ enjoying air cooler back in the 1980s. The BR Chopra-directed show, which is being rerun on Doordarshan amidst the ongoing nationwide coronavirus lockdown, enjoyed the limelight and reminded people of ‘Game of Thrones’ goof-up (the Starbucks cup) and more.

2. ‘Apun Hich Bhagwan Hai’
“Coolers were invented in 1951, Lo Bhishma pitamah – apun hich bhagwan hai,” penned another user whilst sharing a screenshot of the scene from ‘Mahabharat’.
Coolers were invented in 1951.
3. Reminded Of GOT
A lot of fans were reminded of Game of Thrones, thanks to Bhishma Pitamah’s sacrifice among arrows. The Hollywood TV show, which was released much later, had an iron throne made of swords.

This is not the 1st time when social media is having fun at the cost of others. When you are shooting there are a lot of things to be taken care of with limited human and financial resources at your disposal, so errors creeping in unnoticed is a common thing. When the project comes under public scrutiny (after being released) a lot of errors are then brought to notice, of its makers.
To Err Is Human
