There are three things that are synonymous with every Indian wedding – laaj, sharam and lihaaj. The bride and groom are supposed to be in their best behaviour, and by ‘best’ I mean interact with the wedding guests, do tonnes of pranaams and feet-touching, eat right at the end after everyone’s left (even though the mice in your stomach have run wild), and refrain from ANY physical forms of affection – even hand-holding in some cases.
Therefore, when Marvel’s ‘Eternals’, which has now hit theatres, showed Ikaris (Richard Madden) and Sersi (Gemma Chan) kissing after what looks like an Indian wedding, desi people were having none of it.
Have a look at the tweet here:
I am never going to shut up about the fact that Marvel thinks people kiss at Hindu weddings. pic.twitter.com/oNAXokB5SP

Many people tweeted about how it’s not allowed, how judgemental relatives would never spare you, and the bride and groom don’t get so close even during varmala!
LMFAOOO I can just picture the judgemental uncles and aunties if this ever happened🤣🤣🤣 https://t.co/FHXgLxqUsG

what the fcvk is this? They don't even give a smooch in the cheek let alone kiss during any wedding in india. Doesn't matter if they're Hindu or Christian, nobody kisses in this conservative country out in public 😭 maybe learn about this country first if u want to be "diverse" https://t.co/B1pu3lrJ79

Kissing your husband in front of 300 odd people at your wedding and giving aunty jis something to talk about for the rest of their lives? No thanks.
