During this festive season of Holi, people are engaged in joyful celebrations across the country. However, a recent video circulating on social media captured a unique Holi celebration in Delhi metro setting.

In the video, two girls dressed in white sarees can be seen joyfully participating in the festival. They skillfully incorporate vibrant colours into their sarees, accompanied by the melodious tune of the song 'Ang Laga De' from the movie 'Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela.'

The video depicted the two girls playfully applying colours to each other's faces and engaging in playful acts, including moments that some found to be provocative.

This scene unfolded amidst the quiet yet somewhat awkward observation of other passengers in the metro. Hence, the video, which gained traction on platform X, sparked varied reactions from viewers.

Some expressed amusement while others voiced concerns about the appropriateness of such activities in public spaces by tagging it as obscene.

One user humorously commented, "Is it a metro station or a seduction station?" "I am embarrassed just seeing this video! Imagine the people in the background 😂," wrote a Twitterati.

Another suggested imposing a fine of 1 lakh rupees per 15 second for such displays. "I think DMRC always announce it that videography is prohibited inside metro only thing is they need to implement it," wrote another user.

Amidst these reactions, another user commented, "I got so uncomfortable watching this, can't imagine what the passengers have been through.."

Meanwhile, some also demanded stern action against the girls and also their immediate arrest to set an example.
