Zomato IPO:  Deepinder Goyal’s ‘triple breakfast’ triggers meme fest on Twitter; what others tweeted
Zomato founder Deepinder Goyal tweeted that he had ordered triple breakfast and had been stress eating after the food delivery’s Rs 9,375-crore Initial Public Offering (IPO) opened for subscription on July 14. The first few hours of the IPO -- which is open to the public for three days -- saw a meme fest on social media with Kotak and Zerodha joining in.
The CEO’s first tweet coincided with the opening of the Zomato IPO. To Twittterati's collective glee, he posted, "Just ordered a triple breakfast @zomato. Stress eating."
In response, Rahul Ganjoo, Head of Delivery, Zomato shared a meme.
A quick reply from the Zomato team added to the fun with “mereko to aisa dhak dhak horela hai” from the movie Hera Pheri. Dialogues from this movie are widely used in social media.
Another tweet from the Zomato team read, “Who all are applying ghee to their paranthas this morning.” The official Twitter handle had highlighted “who all are applying” by using a large font, while the remaining sentence had a much smaller font.
The official handle of Kotak Securities responded to the ‘paranthas’ tweet, saying, “Chill karo, humare saath subah ki chaIPO”.
Pranav Singh, who has applied for the IPO, tweeted another line from Hera Pheri saying, “Paisa hi paisa hoga if allotted.”
Another firm that is handling the IPO apart from Kotak Securities is Zerodha who according to Uddalak Das @ninja_writer21 mentioned, “I heard your servers are having a hard time handing #ZomatoIPO :-)”
His next tweet confirmed that he had applied for the IPO.
Krunal @iamKruzZ in his tweet said, “I will only apply #zomatoipo if they stop ‘dum dum payal payal’ ad song on YouTube. Please @zomato”
Somesh Upadhyay @Somesh_IAS, an IAS officer commented, "it is easier to clear UPSC than to get an IPO allotment."
Chandra R. Srikant @chandrasrikant in her handle posted, “We have the picture of the day!!! Man of the moment @zomato founder and CEO Deepinder Goyal with first investor InfoEdge founder Sanjeev Bikhchandani and early investor Mohit Bhatnagar from Sequoia Capital. Taken just a while ago.”
