Adnan Siddiqui’s selfie recreations got the actor in stitches
Many people had compared Adnan Siddiqui’s selfie to the hugely popular meme titled Disaster Girl, which shows a four-year-old girl smirking devilishly with a house engulfed in flames behind her. The meme was put up for NFT auction in May 2021 and fetched a whopping $500,000. Adnan shared that he vaguely remembered Disaster Girl while taking his selfie but he didn’t want to relate the two as he was for a greater cause.
