Goyal, in his threat of tweets, pointed out that the maximum of orders in India were either biryanis or pizzas. Among the latter, 40 percent was ordered with "extra cheese". This, surely, indicates that New Year's eve is a festive occassion when Indians forego their dietary restrictions.

Goyal pointed out that 1.4 lakh orders were received at one point in the evening - unprecedented high - and the orders included around 20,000 biryanis and 16,000 pizzas. The insanely high amount of customer response has scared the team and put them under enormous pressure, he suggested.
