Desi weddings are all about food, dance, music and fun traditions. One of them is mentioned joota chupai, in which the bride’s sisters steal the groom’s shoes and only return them if they get money in return.
But this one Pakistani wedding got a little too interesting when the bride asked her cousin to steal the shoes, dressed as a money-robbing suit.
The video was posted to her Instagram account by the bride and was viewed more than two million times within days.
“Bella ciao to the joota. I didn’t want anything simple on my shaddi! So me and my sister came up with the idea of the joota robbery, told our brother to grab a money robbery costume from Amazon and my cousin rehearsed the whole thing!” the bride, named Warda Sikander, wrote on Instagram.
The video was captioned, “Joota chupai, but make it more fun. Ft Joota robbery.”
The video shows the bride’s brother, dressed in overalls and the iconic Salvador Dali mask, running to the stage and stealing the groom’s shoes.
Later, the cousin dances to Bella Ciao’s desi beat with other family members. The guests enjoyed the new way of honoring a tradition and could be seen clicking photos and taking videos of the special moment.
Social media users loved the idea and many said the idea was unique and fun.
“It looks so nice and a unique type of joota chupaye,” commented one of the users.
“Absolutely love the idea,” wrote another.
