Shristi Shrestha in Kabhi Jo Badal Barse

While many are busy with earthquake relief efforts, there seems to be a growing group of individuals united in attacking the new music video KABHI JO BADAL BARSE – unplugged featuring our very own Shristi Shrestha and Indian film actor Sachin Joshi. The popular song in the voice of Arijit Singh and Samira Koppikar has racked up over 440,000 YouTube views in the T-Series channel in just one week! I am very happy to see a friend, a model and an aspiring actress Shristi in the video! She looks stunning in the music video and looks at ease with the scenes from the music video. Some of the scenes, the black and white part, the white dress part and even the kissing scenes have been filmed and acted beautifully.

Unfortunately, all of this hasn’t translated very well with many viewers across the globe. What many have failed to remember is that Shristi Shrestha was a model long before becoming the Miss Nepal 2012. She has modeled in the UK, India and Nepal. It naturally makes sense for her to pursue a career in Bollywood. The outraged viewers seem to be shocked to see a kiss scene, to be specific, a Nepali girl kissing an Indian guy seems to be the bigger issue here. Even mainstream and ‘artsy’ Nepali films now have kiss scenes and rocky bed scenes but why are people freaking out over a video that’s merely 3:10 minutes long. Are some people forgetting the fact that this is only a music video, done in a production schedule of few days?
