The internet was in splits when a viral photo of a Flipkart delivery address appeared on the internet. The pic in question is addressed to someone as ‘Salim Lala’, and instead of a full detailed address, the customer left instructions for the delivery executive—requesting that they reach a certain shop and ask for him. People online are laughing out loud, and reacting with funny memes and jokes. However, the image seems to be fake. It is a photoshopped pic of the same one which went viral last year for a similar reason—bizarre address. In this article, we will bring you the original photo of the Flipkart address that even the company had a hilarious take on.

In a world where we are highly equipped and have GPS service to navigate through roads, multiple directions or popular landmarks. However, for our country, the landmarks are mostly, ‘nukkad ki tapir,’ ‘pan dukan’ and in some cases, ‘mandir ke samne.’ And that is what was written to a Flipkart address—‘mandir ke samne aate hi phone laga lena, mein aa jauga,” (call me once you reach the temple, I will come and collect it). Yes, it happens only in India! It was addressed to Kota, Rajasthan. The image went hilariously viral on Twitter last year. Flipkart too had a hilarious take on the address.

Here's the Viral Pic:

Twitterati seems to have a hilarious time, making jokes at the viral image. Man Orders Apple iPhone 11 Pro From Flipkart, Receives Fake Phone With 'Camera Sticker'.
