  1. Wow so much negativity in the comments…

    It's their wedding. Nobody was hurt or exploited. It makes them happy, and the resulting photos actually are very nice. Why all the shaming and political agendas??

  2. Hope BBC understood, not all Indians live in slums and people here are capable of spending around 1500 dollars for a wedding photoshoot.

    Eagerly waiting for your documentary on India's lunar missions.

  3. Is that really viral in India? Chandrayan 2 mission is viral across the country. I think you guys don't know about it. If you guys are not interested to upload a documentary on lunar mission. Please don't make us a laughing stock by uploading these kind of stupid videos.

  5. when there are so many serious issues around the world which needs to be discussed and solved still bbc's interest is in India's viral wedding photoshoots. should a channel like bbc which has a world wide reputation choose a more relevant topic when publishing news in a platform like Youtube where you have nearly 5 million subscribers ?

  6. Once the BBC had credibility. No longer it seems.
    India has people dying from drought and floods, space launches and border tension but what does the BBC think is news worthy?
    Shame on you.

  7. I am from kerala and I hate this kind of show off from people. Indian weddings are a joke nowadays with this stupid photo shoots. This is just showing off their wealth and the brag that continues after that. Social media has made us believe in pseudo life.
