“Ours was an arranged-cum-love marriage,” Lekshmi told me over the phone from their home in Ernakulam in the southern state of Kerala.
 

According to BBC, netizens were strongly critical of the photos that went viral on Facebook, calling them obscene. There are many trolls with them. 

Newly married Lakshmi said they were supposed to marry in April this year. But the wedding date was delayed due to the Coronavirus. The Indian government has ordered all public gatherings to be avoided. So in September, they tied the knot. They did post-wedding photoshoots but the photos drew flak on social media.

Lakshmi told BBC that they were treated differently after sharing the photos. Some call them “pornography.” And, someone attacked directly, saying, “To act in pornography.”
