One Pakistani wedding became a bit too fascinating when the bride urged her cousin to take the shoes while dressed as a Money Heist.
Weddings in the subcontinent are all about cuisine, dancing, music, and entertaining customs. One example is joota chupai, in which the bride’s sisters take the groom’s shoes and only return them if they are paid.
The bride shared the video on her Instagram account, and it quickly surpassed two million views.
“To the joota, bella ciao.” I didn’t want anything easy on my shaddi! So my sister and I came up with the joota heist concept, instructed our brother to get a money heist outfit from Amazon, and my cousin rehearsed the whole thing!” Warda Sikander, the bride, posted on Instagram.
“Joota chupai, but make it more entertaining,” the video captioned. Heist with Joota.”
The video shows the bride’s brother racing on to the stage in dungarees and the renowned Salvador Dali mask, grabbing the groom’s shoes.
Later, the cousin joins other family members in dancing to the desi rhythm of Bella Ciao. The visitors were spotted taking photographs and recording movies of the momentous event as they loved the unique approach of carrying out a tradition.
Social media users embraced the concept, with many describing it as unusual and entertaining.
”It seems like a lot of fun and a different kind of joota chupaye,” one user said.
“Totally loving the idea,” said another.
