Indian weddings are a big and elaborate affair. During the celebrations, the thumping beats of dhol are so energetic that hardly anyone can resist shaking a leg to it. Now, New York too got a taste of a big fat Indian wedding when one family shut down Broadway amid celebrations.
Taking to Instagram, former Candidate for US Congress, Suraj Patel, shared a glimpse of his brother’s wedding in New York, in which the ‘Baarat‘ was seen celebrating and dancing to Bollywood songs in traditional attire. “We shut down broadway for my brother’s wedding!” the text in the clip read.
“My heart is so full, for my family to have all been here for such an incredible occasion for my brother’s wedding, so much love and energy on the streets of NYC,” Mr Patel wrote in the caption of the post.
Watch the video below:
In the video, the ‘Baraat‘ was seen grooving to Punjabi songs on the streets of New York City. Several men wearing pink turbans and women in traditional attire were seen dancing and enjoying songs, including Mundia Toh Bachke.
Mr Patel shared the video on September 25, and since then it accumulated more than 827,000 views and over 19,000 likes.

However, some users were also irked for blocking a public place. “Why are you allowed to shut down Broadway for a personal event. Isint this a grave inconvenience to residents ?” wrote one. “The ‘Shutdown’ caption did more harm to this post, than the actual event itself,” added another.
Meanwhile, earlier, a video of an Indian man proposing to his girlfriend in front of the Eiffel Tower in Paris had taken the internet by storm. In the clip, the man was seen dancing to the hit song ‘Koi Mil Gaya‘ from the movie ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’. The video garnered more than 18,000 likes and over 7,000 comments.
