Some even went a step further and came up with this.

So who is Majnu bhai?

The viral Majnu bhai these posts are referring to is a character from Anil Kapoor-starrer Welcome series. The last movie in the series was released back in 2015.

The character Kapoor portrays in the movie i.e. Majnu bhai,is an underworld don who aspires to be a painter. The painting that we see in the viral posts is one of those painted by Kapoor’s character in the movie.

The original artwork, as we see in the posts shared by Kapoor on his Twitter and Instagram handles, is that of a tree. We can see the same artwork in these images where the prime minister is seen greeting other visitors.
