Viral Video: Post weddings, it is usually customary for the bride to be taken to her in-laws house in a beautifully decorated car, however, the times are now changing and for the better. A Kashmiri bride is making waves on the internet after ditching the traditional ritual, and driving her husband to sasuraal herself. In a video going viral on Twitter, the newly-wed bride took matters into her own hands and instead of sitting in the back seat of the car with the groom, she herself drove the car and left for her new home.
Dressed in a red lehenga and wedding finery, the bride took the steering wheel in her hands as her husband sat next to her in the passenger seat. According to an India Today report, their wedding took place in North Kashmir’s Baramulla district two days ago.
“A bride driving herself with the groom to her in-laws. #KhudkafeelKashmir,” the video is captioned. Watch it here:
