Breaking stereotypes, One bride at a time.


Blushing Bride?

Why should grooms have all the fun? That’s what bride Amisha Bhardwaj says when asked about her wedding video. Which has gone viral, receiving more than six million views on YouTube.

In the video, Ms Bhardwaj is dancing in shorts and her bridal blouse. Perfectly lip syncing to Sia’s popular song “Cheap Thrills”.

“I am still surprised that the video went viral because it simply shows the wedding party having fun on her wedding day. That’s not unusual,” she says.

But many people have commented about the choice of her clothes and the song.

“I think my video broke the stereotype of the shy Indian bride, who is not supposed to dance, and definitely not wear the kind of clothes I am wearing in the video,” she says.

“The script has been the same for ages – she is supposed to be shy, not laugh and smile sporadically, and cry while leaving her parents’ house. But now the modern Indian bride is writing her own script.”
