This Bridal Photo Shoot Of Ileana D’Cruz Is A Funky Representation Of The Modern Day Bride!

For centuries, Indian society, patriarchal in nature, has suppressed the bride into a box of ‘shoulds’ and taped with rules. The daughter, bride, and soon-to-be wife had responsibilities and she had no choice but to follow the societal norms. When it came to bidaai, shedding of tears was not just an emotional response; it was a necessity. And when it came to the period before the wedding, the to-be bride was always expected to be shy and embarrassed with the mention of marriage – her job was to flutter eyelids, escape from the room when marriage was being discussed, giggle softly, and sigh and swoon.

But, here we are in the 21st century, and girls, we feel it’s high time to break these stereotypes!

In her photo shoot for the Pernia’s Pop-Up Shop’s magazine, Ileana D’Cruz has deviated from everything that makes up the society-pleasing sanskaari bride. With 8 wedding commandments of her own, here comes the woman who is in control of her wedding, and ready to party it up on her own terms. She has swag, her desi thumkas burn the dance floor, and she can chug faster than you. Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce you to the new badass modern Indian bride!

5 Ways To Be The Best Bridesmaid Ever!

Bridesmaids are not only the privileged lot who have received the honor of being part of a bride’s inner circle, but are also the girls who are going to tolerate her during the most special day of her life.
