You may presume it to be a scene from a Bollywood flick, but the incident has been reported in real in Uttar Pradesh’s Gorakhpur.
As per a video going viral on social media, a man gatecrashed his alleged lover's wedding and forcefully applied “sindoor” on her forehead.
A guest at the wedding recorded the entire episode and the video is now being widely shared on social media.
The wedding was taking place at Harpur village. The viral video shows the bride and groom standing on a stage. As the groom moves ahead to put "varmaala" on the bride, a man from the crowd arrives at the scene. His face was covered with a scarf. In no time, he smeared “sindoor” on the bride’s forehead forcibly.
As per reports, the "jilted" lover had gone out of the city for some work, when the girl's parents fixed her marriage with someone else. The wedding was fixed for December 1. After getting to know about the marriage of his lover, he returned to his village on November 28.
