Both of them wanted to try out how a jail is and what it is to live there so they spent their weekend at the Heritage Jail Museum which is in Telangana.

The duo was given proper jail clothes, perhaps they enjoyed their stay, they lived inside their cell. Both of them lived inside the jail for 48 hours and during that time they did some gardening, cleaning and also other activities which are assigned to a prisoner and enjoyed the Indian meal cooked by their fellow prisoners which they liked a lot.

This stunt of staying in the jail made them famous in a very short time over the social media.

By any chance, if you are thinking to visit the jail then please do give the tour operators a call and let them know that you are planning to be jailed for a day. You can then call your friends and say, ‘Bud, I am in jail!’ and prank them.
