Sharing a reel on Instagram, Vikas Khanna is seen preparing saffron chai for his mom. “Mumma, saffron daal diya”, he says. His mom patiently watches him add a generous amount of saffron to the freshly brewed chai.“Mumma, kaisi banni hai?”, he asks.  “Bahut swaad hai,” his mother replies as she stares at the saffron swimming over the pot of chai. To this, Vikas Khanna asks why is she stressed. His mother answers, “Stress kyun ho raha hai?! Do sau rupai ka saffron daal diya hai” ( Why am I stressed? You’ve put ₹200 worth of saffron in it”.

Vikas Khanna bursts into laughter, amused by his mother’s response. “Aisi chai na kabhi sunni na dekhi,” she says with a poker face. Later, as they walk on the quiet, cold roads of the USA, Vikas asks his mother if she is still stressed about saffron-filled tea. His mother replies she is fine now. But the fact that Vikas Khanna emptied saffron worth ₹200 to prepare chai was something she couldn’t fathom.
