Bombay Bol: Ankur Tewari explains

We use 'manzil' as the word for floors, as in 'teesri manzil'. But when I say 'manzil' here, people call me posh even though it's more poetic. They use 'mala' every time, be it while ordering food or inviting people over to their places. And I find that hilarious.
