In a world where people are confused about using Artificial Intelligence tools, some people surely know the creative use of it. Until today, we have seen many people creating AI-generated versions of various actors, superheroes, and more. Now, a Twitter user posted some surprising transitions for the cast of a famous American sitcom, Friends

Aired in 1994, the sitcom has 10 seasons. Throughout the show, the viewers witnessed the shared lives of six friends who stay together all the time. The show followed the journey of their ups and downs and how they all supported and loved each other. Now, to add fun to these characters, a Twitter user named Abhinav Kumar posted some pictures of the cast members wearing Indian ethnic wear.

Kumar posted pictures of Ross, Rachel, Chandler, Monica, and Mike Phoebe dressed in Indian traditional wear. The pictures of Monica and Rachel wearing Saari (an Indian dress for women) stood out in the series of AI-generated pictures. Although there is an explicit reference to Indian culture in another sitcom, The Office, this is the first time that fans saw the Friends cast being Indianized like this.
