Sharing a graph of how the numbers boomed up against a regular Sunday, Palicha said on microblogging platform X (formerly known as Twitter) that demands for puja flowers were skyrocketing just before the World Cup final match started at 2 pm.

Palicha said, initially they thought that the hike in demand for flowers was because of Chhath Puja, but later they observed a major spike since the match started.

“India’s religious side is starting to show! Sales of puja flowers are through the roof today compared to a regular Sunday. We thought it was because of Chhath Puja, but there’s been a major spike since the match started,” Palicha said.

“Serious hype at Zepto HQ right now – we’ve delivered 100,000+ cans of Thums Up for free today and the game hasn’t even started!”Palicha twitted on X.

Zepto delivered over 2 lakh free Thums Up beverages as part of a partnership with the brand, reported BQ Prime. “The partnership with Thump Up has been a big success in driving the traffic today,”Palicha added.

Meanwhile, Blinkit also reported the highest-ever sales of chips on the quick delivery platform.

lbinder Dhindsa, Blinkit’s cofounder and CEO, said the company is on track to hit a new all-time high of chips sales.
