Vin Diesel as UP CM? Twitter erupts with memes on Yogi Adityanath, Mark Sinclair

If American actor Mark Sinclair, more popularly known as Vin Diesel, logged on to Twitter on Saturday evening, he must have been one confused man.

After all, if you're a Hollywood star famous for some ridiculous stunts in action movies, it is not every day that people in India say that you will be the next chief minister of Uttar Pradesh. And if Diesel doesn't actively follow Indian politics, he must also be wondering who Yogi Adityanath is.

Adityanath, a five-time MP from Gorakhpur and Hindutva hardliner, was chosen as chief minister of India's largest state on Saturday. Twitterati spent no time pointing out how he bore more than just a passing resemblance to Diesel, even comparing them and sarcastically saying that Diesel is the next Uttar Pradesh chief minister.

Here are some of the funniest tweets:
