The video shows Kapil fixing an electronic instrument in his room. His wife talks to him about the new job offer she's getting, which requires her to work in the evening. She mentions how she has paid for the kids' school uniform already and need more money to run the household as there is also a hike in house rent. Kapil taunts him that she would have to leave at the time he would return home from work. He also asks her to return the school uniform and not fill the school form. Despite her efforts to convince him, he asks her to sit at home and says that they would manage just like they did when he was jobless for eight months.
Kapil had taken a break from his comedy show, The Kapil Sharma Show, to shoot for the film in Odisha.
