A video of a bride wearing tomatoes instead of gold jewellery has left many amused. The bride, from Lahore, Pakistan, is seen in a viral video wearing a golden outfit paired with a necklace, earrings, bangles and hair accessories - all made out of tomatoes. Speaking to a reporter from Daily Pakistan, she revealed the reason behind her bizarre choice of jewellery.
"Sone ke bhaav bahut mehenge ho rahe hain. Tamatar aur chilgoze bhi bahut mehenge ho rahe hain, issliye maine apni shaadi pe sone ki jagah pe tamatar pehne hain (Gold prices are on the rise. Tomatoes and pine nuts have also become very expensive. That is why I chose to wear tomatoes instead of gold on my wedding," the bride said.
According to news agency PTI, the price of tomatoes has skyrocketed to Rs 300 per kg in several parts of the country.
A two-minute-and-20-second-long clip of the interview has gone viral online since it was posted on Twitter on Tuesday. Watch the interview below:

Others also wondered if the video was a spoof as the reporter, Yasir Shami, is known for his satirical videos. On Facebook, some pointed out that the video looked staged, as the bride wasn't wearing henna on her hands. "Scripted... Dulhan hai par mehndi nahi lagi (Scripted, the bride is not wearing mehendi)" wrote one commenter, while another said "It's staged."
