The Miss Earth India, 2015 Aaital Khosla had faced widespread criticism when she plagiarized the scenes from Nepal to claim them to be from India. The video shared by the official Miss Earth channel was removed within hours after protest.
Video report on the incident:
Aaital has redone the video by replacing the parts showing Nepal with that of India and has released a new video now for the video competition in Miss Earth completion.
In a message Aaital has written:
I am sorry if I have inadvertently hurt your sentiments by showing parts of your land in my video. It was an unintentional mistake, which I known has caused your people anguish. I deeply regret the same. You are a dear neighbour and will remain so. I seek your forgiveness and I am sure you will be magnanimous in accepting my apology. Regards, Aaital.
