A ‘zero-touch’ solution to apply turmeric on a bride for her haldi ceremony is being widely shared on social media.
In the video being shared on social media, a woman wearing a mask dips a paint roller with a long handle into a vessel containing turmeric paste and then applies it on the arms of the bride. The video shows the bride and others laughing.
The video was originally shared by Brampton-based wedding photographers Cinematic Films on an Instagram story.
