Those who do not know, the joota churai ritual has been a part of Hindu weddings since time immemorial. The sister-in-law of the groom steals his wedding shoes and demands a hefty amount from him only after which will the groom get his shoes back!

In the video, Hardik Pandya asks Pankhuri, “Arey tum bolo na kitna chahiye?”

She asks for Rs 1 lakh. But Hardik first says Rs 2 lakh but then goes on to say, “Paanch lakh ek rupaye,” which means Rs 5 lakh and 1 rupee.
