India witnessed unprecedented cricket fervor following the World Cup 2023 semi-final victory, leading to nationwide celebrations. Virat Kohli’s remarkable 50th ODI century was a standout moment, sparking jubilation beyond the cricket field. In Uttar Pradesh’s Bahraich, a local eatery named ‘Lucknowi Rasoi’ created chaos with an enticing pre-match offer—discounting their signature biryani by the runs scored by Kohli. As Kohli achieved his century, the restaurant owner began serving free biryani, causing word to spread rapidly. The generous offer drew crowds, resulting in chaotic queues, halted traffic, and necessitated police intervention. To manage the situation, the restaurant temporarily closed its shutters, ultimately chaining down to prevent potential vandalism.
