They also spent some quality time with Mumbai’s famed Dabbawallas.

They not only clicked pictures with the dabbawalas, but also got a go at the real feel of the community who have delivered lunches to the working class and office goers for decades. The Ring team wore Gandhi caps with their names written on them.

The dabbawalas posed in their usual attire of white kurta pyjama and the traditional Gandhi cap.
