On Twitter, there’s a video that’s being retweeted numerous times.
This video is that of a bride, believed to be from India, occupying herself with a laptop and a smartphone at what appears to be her own wedding.
In the short 13 second clip posted by Twitter user Dinesh Joshi, the bride appears to be on the phone with someone while a laptop is propped on her lap. The groom walks and sits next to her seconds later as Hindi music blares in the background.

The video has led many people to have conflicting theories as to what she’s actually doing.
Some felt that the bride was showing off, pretending to be busy to impress society.
Typical Indian attitude towards to professional work…
This is more to impress the immediate & extended social circle
High time we call out such fake being busy/highly committed imagery

Others theorized that it could have been a ploy to avoid awkward conversations with relatives.
That’s a good idea to ignore the relatives fake hugs and smile 🤣🤣

Some wondered if she was busying herself on the laptop and smartphone to update her social media circle that she’s tied the knot.
Busy informing friends that she is married now. Apparently, she ignored groom now. You know all why ?? Because it’s an LOVE MARRIAGE..!! its clear and I am 200% sure.

Many, however, felt that it was a last minute work that she had to do for her company or boss or client.
This isint work pressure. It’s either a greedy company or an inefficient employee or a combination of both. Please don’t make this as a benchmark four your company or your employees.

Others felt that she was trying to live telecast her wedding either on Facebook or Zoom. With many countries still in partial lockdown, this could be the most plausible theory.

According to The Times of India, the bride apparently had to do a last-minute presentation call. However, the daily didn’t reveal where it got the info from.
