Viral gender reveal party event video receives mixed reactions
The video shared on their Instagram account has been viewed more than 1.7 million times and has garnered 15 million views on YouTube.
However, the event received mixed reactions from the people on social media. While many lauded the couple for hosting a lavish party at the Burj Khalifa, others called the event as ‘extravagant’ and ‘show off’. The critics said they could have donated the money spent on the event to the needy people in Syria or Africa. Moreover, the event at Burj Khalija in Dubai came at a time when the gender reveal party in California, the USA sparked a massive wildfire.
Other reports claim the couple booked Burj Khalifa for a three-minute gender long reveal party and paid a hefty amount. Meanwhile, a publication claimed that the gender reveal party was a gift from Burj Khalifa and Emaar to the couple and that the they had not paid any money for the event.
