KATHMANDU, June 9: TikTok has been a popular app among youths in Nepal. People from all walks of life and social status seem to have made good use of their free time during the lockdown by creating TikTok videos.
The former royal family in the country is also not an exception to this growing trend among Nepali youngsters and adults. A tik tok video of former crown princess Himani Shah and her daughters Purnika and Kritika dancing together on a Nepali popular number ‘Guras Ko Phed Muni’ has drawn the attention of Nepalis living in different parts of Nepal and abroad.
Clad in black apparels, they show uniformed steps of their dance. The video uploaded from the TikTok account of Purnika on Monday has already gone viral among Nepalis. “We got it from our momma!! @ krii_shah we honestly have an amazing mother,” Purnika has written in the caption.
The video has been liked already by over 17,000 people and commented by nearly 1,000 people as of Tuesday morning. Similarly, around 1800 followers have already shared the video. Former crown prince Parash Shah, who is currently in Nepal, has also shared the video with a caption, “My family”.
Former princess Himani is currently stranded in Thailand due to the nationwide lockdown enforced by the government to contain the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). She went there to visit her daughters, who are pursuing their higher studies.
While this is the first appearance of former princess Himani in the tiktok, her daughter Purnika recently created her tiktok account. She already has over 30,000 followers.
