The world of films has been full of excitement in the recent past. Two interesting and diverse films - Barbie and Oppenheimer - have released on the same day July 21. There are fans of both in equal numbers; Greta Gerwig's Barbie promises to be a unique retelling of the classic doll character. Meanwhile, Oppenheimer directed by Christopher Nolan is a biopic about the creator of the atomic bomb. As movie buffs debate about which film to watch, it was time to give the debate a foodie spin! Amidst the flurry of memes on social media, a number of Indian brands joined the fun to create some witty posts with a foodie twist. Take a look:
