While sharing a screenshot of the notifications, Das wrote, “I don’t care if you’re thirsty. Your eggplant needs to leave my mushroom button alone. I don’t want my choco filled. I am not your paneer. Stop.”

He further urged in his Instagram post’s caption, “Zepto. Stop,” complete with a laughing emoticon.
