Indian weddings are filled with ancient and opulent customs that span an entire week, including elaborate religious ceremonies, dazzling attire, singing and dancing, and an abundance of jewellery. Each of these rituals holds a significant and emotional value. 

Recently, a video has surfaced on social media that has caused a stir. The video uploaded on Instagram shows a new Gujarati wedding tradition in which the groom is presented with a cigarette and paan (betel quid) by his in-laws. 

The mother-in-law places a cigarette in the groom's mouth while the father-in-law lights it. However, the groom does not smoke the cigarette and the father-in-law takes it away. The reel has received over 5.8 million views and 166k likes.

"The self control to not take a puff .. i can see the stress on groom's face," a third user wrote.
