Her video has garnered over 3.7 lakh likes with 3,000 comments.

A user commented on her video saying “I love how accurately 'muh toh band karo uncle' fits here." While one user referred to her as “Gen Z Poo", likening her to Kareena Kapoor’s iconic character.

However, her video did not sit well with all netizens; a user commented "But you forgot to wear blouse inside", while another said "Sister forgot to wear a blouse in a hurry while showing everyone."

One user also commented that a tube top isn't a good fit with a saree and commented: "She needs to understand wearing a tube top as a blouse doesn't make her look elegant. The thought of flaunting your traditional in a different country is too good but girl wear a f**king blouse and not those cheap bralettes."
