It’s a Gen Z slang term being used as an abbreviation.
When star India batter Virat Kohli came to know about this freakish social media trend he was left baffled and expressed surprise at the existence of such words like ‘delulu’ and ‘solulu’.
On a Star Sports chat show, Kohli was asked by the host to pronounce the sentence “My delulu is the only solulu.” His reaction conveyed sheer disbelief while accepting the unexpected request.
“Aise kaun baat karta hain,” Kohli told the host.
The term ‘Delulu’ originated within K-pop fan communities around 2014, coined to describe delusional fan behaviors. “Solulu” is the same solution.
