Here's Why 'Sonam Gupta Bewafa Hai' Is Trending
If your name is Sonam Gupta, our sympathies are with you. As for others who don’t know why we are saying so, it’s because ‘Sonam Gupta Bewafa Hai’ was among the top trends on Monday, displacing topics such as currency ban and Koffee With Karan Johar.
Earlier this year an old Rs 10 note surfaced on the Internet with the words, ‘Sonam Gupta Bewafa Hai’ (Sonam Gupta is unfaithful), written on it. It seemed like a jilted lover decided to give it back to one Sonam Gupta for being unfaithful to him, in the process maligning all the girls with a similar name.
Social media users had hilarious reactions to this particular Rs 10 note.

As time passed, Sonam Gupta was forgotten. The Internet discussed and made fun of far more interesting topics, including the awkward meeting between President-elect Donald Trump and outgoing-President Barack Obama.
But recently, after PM Modi scrapped Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes, Sonam Gupta suddenly seemed to have returned to pubic glare once again.
While people were struggling to get their Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes exchanged, this spurned lover made a comeback.
In an image circulated on social media, the new Rs 2,000 note had the same words, ‘Sonam Gupta Bewafa Hai’, written on it. Probably, the man couldn’t successfully warn men of Gupta last time, therefore, he returned and how!
Although we cannot verify the image, netizens have been creating hilarious memes around it, and also cracking jokes all at will.
