Video of Bride and Groom Dancing While Taking ‘Pheras’ at Wedding Goes Viral, Sparks Mixed Reactions on Social Media

There are weddings, and then there are Indian weddings. You will find plenty of things different and joyous in a desi wedding, following different traditions and cultures around the country. Social media these days are filled with adorable couples getting married, engaged in so many different ceremonies to make their big day memorable. Some are hilarious; others provide elaborate experiences. Amid all of it, this video goes viral on social media, which shows a desi bride and groom dancing happily while taking their “saat pheras.” The clip has gone viral, but attracted mixed reactions online.

Saat phere, (seven rounds), is an important part of the Hindu wedding where the bride and groom walk around the holy fire together, and pray for a happy future. Each phera has a different vow, which is out by the priest before the couple becomes husband and wife. The video captures the exact moment, but in a different experience, the couple was seen joyously dancing while taking the pheras. Indian businessman, Vedant Birla shared the clip on Twitter by terming it ‘disrespectful' to the Hindu culture. The couple dressed in heavy wedding attire, danced to the song Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai, during their phera ceremony. Madurai Couple Prints Digital Scan Code on Wedding Invitation for Guests to Send Gifts, Post-COVID Wedding Trends Continue. 

“Is this marriage or sacrificial rituals? Do not forget that you are worshipable in the world, only because of your culture and values,” translated the caption which Birla wrote in Hindi. ‘Hold on Babe,' Latest Funny Meme Trend Is the Best Thing on Internet RN!
