For instance, he encourages the guest not to feel shy and enjoy the food wherever he wishes. He “forces” the guest to eat additional rotis and extra servings of rice. He makes conversation about how the attraction of eating outside food has diminished over time. He offers the guest a “famous mithai” that he cannot leave without trying. He also asks the (unseen) helper to make chai and show the guest where he can wash his hands. He insists that the guest leave his plate at the table and not take it to the kitchen himself. In the end, he tells the guest that he didn’t actually eat much. Don’t miss the intricacies of the sketch – watch the complete reel below:
