Indian brides are usually expected to be coy, bashful and every other synonym of shy that one could think of. Even if the new ‘bhabhi’ or ‘bahu’ is asked to sing or dance for the in-laws, it is expected she’d do so with a lot of reserve. But not this bride here, whose video of dancing to a popular song ‘Bhaan ka rola’ sung by Raju Punjabi has taken over the Internet.
In a ghunghat, or veil, and wearing choodas (a set of bangles traditionally worn by women who are newly married), the woman’s immensely enjoying herself and dancing to the song, much to the amusement of those around her, who seem to have been stunned into silence. With around 13 million views, the video – which seems to be from last year – has resurfaced online and is being widely shared.
Though the identity of the woman is not known, a NewsCrunch report says the video was apparently shot in Satna, Madhya Pradesh. The report also suggests that apparently there is a custom in Bagelkhand, wherein newly-wed brides are supposed to dance to usher in good fortune to the family. Whatever be the reason, we are extremely impressed with what we saw.
