5 paisa Biriyani-challenge ended up in restaurant closure. A restaurant in Tamil Nadu(a state of India) was closed due to an odd challenge
The story of 5 paise (an old coin of Indian currency and not valid now) Biriyani Challenge occurred in Madurai, Tamil Nadu (a state in India)
Akshaya Prabhu, The owner of Suganya's Biriyani advertised a giveaway of Biriyani packs in connection with the inaugural function of his restaurant.
But there was a condition,
People who need Biriyani should pay five paise for each pack.
Akshaya Prabhu is a numismatic and antique collector. He implied the challenge as an encouragement for antique collectors. The five paise, the old Indian currency is no longer in use here and that's why Akshaya Prabhu thought that five paise wouldn't have been in anyone's pocket.
On the inaugural day, they prepared to wait on those who bring five paise only with fifty packs of Biriyani. Although the arrival of very few people with five paise, in the beginning, made them happy, they hadn't thought of the situation would get out of their hands. A lot of people stand in front of the restaurant happily with five paise, especially the beggars.
The owner was sweating. The situation led him to collect more Biriyani packs and satisfy them. But the overflow of countless people brought him down and he gave up the distribution.
Because the crowd gathered together breaking the covid protocol, police officers took over and closed the restaurant.
The restaurant 'Suganya's Biriyani was his second hotel.
