Directed by Hwang Dong-hyuk, the drama series stars HoYeon Jung, Lee Jung-jae, Gong Yoo, Wi Ha-joon, Park Hae Soo and many more talented actors. Recently, a Twitter user created a hilarious thread out of it while paralleling it with stills from the Bollywood film series Hera Pheri.
A treat for the cinephiles, the Squid Game and Hera Pheri franchise thread created by the Twitter user showcases photographs from the series and the Akshay Kumar starrer, which creates a parallel between several scenes. The caption of the tweet read, “Made Squid Game x Hera Pheri Franchise scene-parallels like a true cinephile.”
