An Instagram video titled “Surat’s famous action chaiwala” was posted by @foodie_.life. A roadside tea vendor can be seen in the video throwing milk packets far into the air and then dumping them into a water-filled container. To create the beverage, he adds sugar, tea leaves, chopped greens, and other ingredients. To strain it, he transfers the mixture into a different container that is covered with a piece of cloth. When the tea reaches a rolling boil, he lets it cool. 

A local Nagpur tea vendor known as “Dolly Chaiwala” rose to fame a while back when her photos went viral. In February 2024, Bill Gates, the co-founder of Microsoft, stopped by his stand to have some tea. He shared a video on social media, and it went viral (see the complete story here). In many respects, Dolly Chaiwala’s fame has expanded since that encounter. The chaiwala in the video has gained popularity recently, and some are playfully speculating that he may become “Dolly version 2.0”.

Watch the complete viral video below.

So far, the clip has had over 42 million views. Numerous users made jokes in the comments section suggesting that he could be linked to Dolly Chaiwala from Nagpur. Others made the humorous observation that the Surat chaiwala would soon become popular among powerful people worldwide.
