Actor Sonu Sood has extended his help to Bihar’s tea stall owner Priyanka Gupta, popular as Graduate Chaiwali. Months after her stall was seized by the Patna Municipal Corporation in an anti-encroachment campaign, the businesswoman was seen pleading for help in a social media video that went viral.

An economics graduate, Priyanka started a tea stall near the Patna Women’s College earlier this year after she failed to secure any job over the past two years. In a new video she shared earlier this week, she alleged that she was a victim of misogyny as several other illegal businesses continue to run in and around Patna, but hers is the only tea cart to be targeted.

After the video surfaced, Bhojpuri actress Akshara Singh raised her voice in support, and now Sonu has helped the tea stall owner. He tweeted, “Arranged a place for Priyanka’s tea shop. Now no one will remove Priyanka from there. I will come to Bihar and will have the tea from your hand soon.”

Meanwhile, Priyanka has shared on Instagram that her first franchise tea shop will soon open in Gopalganj, Bihar. She also shared an ad seeking interest in a franchise shop in Vaishali. The post saw many people requesting to be part of the franchise in various parts of Bihar.
