Congress leader Rahul Gandhi walked into the countryside in Tamil Nadu and joined the YouTube sensation 'Village Cooking Channel' during the preparation of mushroom biriyani. Within a few hours of the video surfacing on YouTube, the content hit about 1.7 million views in six hours.
During his recent Tamil Nadu visit, Rahul Gandhi took time off to meet YouTube sensation 'Village Cooking Channel' which showcases country-style cooking.
With 7.13 million subscribers, this channel is a household name in Tamil Nadu and neighbouring states. This time, the channel had Rahul Gandhi making a guest appearance.
Within hours of being posted, the video has gone viral and garnered over 1.7 million views.
Rahul Gandhi along with AICC Secretary Tamil Nadu and Puducherry In charge Dinesh Gundu Rao not just met the people behind the channel but also joined them in preparing mushroom biriyani.
During the conversation with the crew Subramanian, V Murugesan, V Ayyanar, G Tamilselvan and T Muthumanickam who are led by their grandfather and former caterer M Periyathambi, Rahul enquired about the team's aspirations.
The channel crew said they wanted to showcase their country-style cooking in many countries. Rahul Gandhi assured them that he will reach out to his friends abroad and help them achieve their dreams.
Later, Rahul sat on the ground and ate along with them on a plantain leaf and also thanked them in Tamil saying 'rumba nalla irukku' (It's very good).
The connection between Rahul Gandhi's outreach and the election season in Tamil Nadu is unmissable though.
