Getting into an autorickshaw and riding through narrow lanes and busy traffic is one of the routines of Indians, but not many would imagine travelling in the three-wheeler in New York.

As the driver manoeuvres the three-wheeler, New Yorkers are seen walking along a footpath. A Bollywood song is heard in the background, imbibing the Mumbai spirit.

“Out in the ricksha around #York city again,” read the text insert in the clip. The clip shared by Instagram handle was captioned, “A decent day to get out in the ricksha today… was great to meet @kane___25603 and take him for a ride through #York for some #mumbaivibes.”
