Chandigarh, April 13

Remember '2 States', the Bollywood movie? This incident is quite similar.

A man from Andhra Pradesh shared the story of introducing his Punjabi girlfriend to his parents, and all the behind-the-scenes drama that went down with it.   

Netizens were instantly hooked to the man's story. Several even compared his story to the Bollywood film, 2 States, which was about a Punjab-Tamil Nadu wedding.  

Vivek Raju, who hails from Andhra Pradesh, recently broke the news about his Punjabi girlfriend to his parents on the microblogging website. 

What happens next could be very well-used for a Bollywood movie script. 

On April 8, Vivek wrote: “Broke the news about my girlfriend to my parents last night. We are from Andhra. My girlfriend is Punjabi. Fun times in the house. Mom is okay. Dad has gone completely silent. Having fun observing this once in a lifetime reaction from parents (unless my brother drops a bomb too).”

Vivek shared an update, saying that: “Dad’s avoiding now. Hiding behind the phone to avoid further conversation.”

He added that his father wanted his girlfriend to come and visit him over the weekend, which he denied given the COVID situation. And Vivek's idea of a video call was shot down instantly. 

Vivek revealed that his mother instantly approved of their match. He also joked that he and his father were teetotallers, which annoyed his father-in-law. 

Sharing more updates, Vivek explained that his dad was still avoiding him. 

Later, he explained that the girlfriend’s family was “absolutely fine” with the relationship. “No drama. I doubt they are from India,” he joked.

Vivek, in the end, clarified that though his father did not instantly approve his choice of life partner, he was not a villain.
