After this the father enumerates the features of the vehicle, but Kumar asks about 6 airbags. The car is changed at the end of the video.
Opposition raised questions
Shiv Sena leader Priyanka Chaturvedi said, ‘This is an advertisement full of problems. Who passes on such creatives? Is the government spending money to promote security or promoting dowry through this ad.’ Trinamool Congress national spokesperson Saket Gokhale said that it is bad to see the Indian government officially increasing the dowry system.
