"They have asked him to find a a groom for their youngest daughter," she mentioned in one of her posts. She further added how the vendor tried to speak to one of his customers and got to know that he is a Software Engineer who earns 1.2 lakh per month. "Bhaiya asked him if he’s open to marriage proposals and he said yes… What’s going on?" she wrote in another tweet.

Things didn't quite go any further from this point. However, still convinced the pani puri vendor would be able to help them, the women asked him to look for someone else.

Prakriti added that the vendor is upset now because:
