Biryani enthusiasts were left heartbroken on Sunday after watching a video that showed two vessels, possibly filled with the flavorful rice dish, floating away in a heavily flooded street in Hyderabad.
Filmed outside an establishment called ‘Adiba Hotel’ in Hyderabad’s Nawab Saheb Kunta, the video shows a black vessel atop a brown pot bobbing away from the restaurant in the floodwaters.

The video posted on Twitter is captioned, “Somebody is going to be unhappy for not getting his biryani order.” Taking a ‘glass half full’ approach, a user replied, “And someone would be happy when this reaches a house”
People have left hilarious responses under the video, including one that read, “Is this the latest in home delivery?” Another user called it “the great escape”.
