What's in the ad?

In the ad, Ratna and Monisha are in their character's getups—the former wearing an elegant sari, a boat-neck blouse, and a blunt cut in signature Maya Sarabhai fashion, and the latter sporting a Monisha-like red salwar suit with an off-white scarf. They're at a store, where Maya lists out a bunch of discounted grocery items and claims that they're from Monisha's mayka (parents' home).

Monisha then explains to Maya how all the items are discounted because of an ongoing Flipkart offer. She even calls a jar of peanut butter “moongfali ki chutney," to which Maya rolls her eyes. The two then dance together to celebrate the Flipkart deal.

The internet couldn't contain their excitement after watching Maya-Monisha reunite. “Mummy jee and Monisha (green and red heart emojis),” commented a user. “After such a long time saw monisha and Maya together,” wrote another. “Love them together (red heart emojis). Best ad ever (bow down emoji),” read a third comment.
