Indian dad hilariously roasts his daughter’s singing and he doesn’t hold back

Sheena Melwani is a pianist, singer and songwriter. The artist uses her TikTok, sheenamelwani, as a way to let her fans get to know her more. Melwani posts music covers of artists like Selena, dance skits and original music. But most importantly she lets her dad roast her, and it’s so funny to watch.

Melwani’s dad (AKA therealindiandad) is not afraid to tease his daughter about her tired TikTok dance moves, her overworn gym shorts and yes, even her own music lyrics

So when Melwani covered the Backstreet Boys’ “As Long As You Love Me,” you can be sure her dad had opinions. 

“Don’t care what is written in your history, as long as you love me,” she sings in front of her piano

Then her father interjects from off-screen mocking the lyrics of the ’90s classic. 

“Is this the level of desperation you’ve reached?” he says. “Doesn’t matter. Swipey left, swipey right, come my house. I don’t care, come dressed in a jacket full of chinchilla fur. No problem. Come, come. Hot summer, wearing full raccoon coat. I don’t care, you just say you love me. It’s all good man!” 

Melwani tried to sing through her father’s commentary but eventually gave in and burst into laughter. 

“You need to have better standards,” he says. “People are watching you, man.” 

The video racked up 1.5 million views on TikTok

“Your dad is a level of savage that I aspire to reach one day,” one person said

“I love the relationship you guys have! Your laugh makes me laugh because you don’t know what he’s going to say next,” another said

“I want to be best friends with him. Your laugh is amazing and makes it that much better,” someone wrote

Sheena Melwani’s new EP will be out later this year so be sure to follow her Instagram for updates.
