Sehaj Arora appeals for support via social media
Sehaj Arora, a food cart owner, said his wife – who recently gave birth – is suffering from “depression” and called for the support of their followers.
“Appeal to media and public…I don’t have the courage to give interview and make videos again and again. Don’t ruin our image by giving fake statements without any evidence,” he wrote on Facebook and Instagram.
“We are being forced to settle this due to political pressure. Statements were made against us when we denied. I have all the evidence. We don’t have any political support. We need your support to stop these videos on internet and get justice,” he added.
The video, a food blogger on Instagram posted, shows the couple preparing pizza dough in a large kulhad, topping it with cheese, vegetables, and sauces, and baking it in a clay oven. The blogger praised the couple for their innovative and eco-friendly idea and said their pizza was delicious and affordable.
The video has received over 1.6 million views and thousands of comments, with many people expressing their admiration and curiosity for the kulhad pizza.
The couple appealed to the public to support them and their kulhad pizza, and said that they would not give up on their dream of providing a unique and eco-friendly food option to people.
