With a quick web search of the symbol beside the hashtag, we came to know that it is an Egyptian Hieroglyph symbol.
We also searched the hashtag without the symbol thinking it might render results with the ‘hashtag with symbol’, but it didn’t. Click here to view Filmfare’s tweet.
Twitter does provide symbols/emojis for hashtags. For instance twitter gives emojis for IPL teams during the event. With a keyword search on Twitter we found a tweet by @CSKFansArmy regarding the emoji for IPL2022.
Here is a Tweet by @CricCrazyJohns with the hashtag for IPL2021.
Above screenshot is during the IPL event.
Twitter also provides emojis for Movies, for instance it has given Actor Yash’s image for the hashtag of his recent movie KGF chapter 2. Below is a tweet by Bangalore Times containing the hashtag.
It is also to be noted that emojis provided by Twitter are colored ones.
No, the symbol has nothing to do with Shah Rukh Khan’s iconic pose. It is a symbol copy-pasted from Egyptian Hieroglyph keyboard abd trended with the actor’s name next to it.
