A video has gone viral on social media showing a young woman turning heads, as she takes a stroll on the streets of London wearing a red wedding ‘lehenga’. The reel was shared by Shraddha, who is a Spanish-Indian model and has 1,68,000 followers on Instagram. In her bio, she also describes herself as a digital marketer and viral media expert.
In the video, the model first takes a ride on the London tube, while being dressed as a bride in a red embroidered ‘lehenga’, along with heavy jewellery. As she enters the train, all eyes are on her, as travellers seem to be fascinated with her choice of attire. She then reaches her destination, takes a stroll on the streets and receives the same kind of attention. Some were also seen clicking pictures of her, while others shot curious glances.
”Giving y’all anxiety through the screen,” the video was captioned. The text insert on the video reads, ”Reactions to a desi top and skirt in London.”
