Uppekha Jain and Pankhuri Awasthi describe themselves as 'Bombaebs' and have titled their song, "Rap Against Rape".

The girls declare that there is "nothing explicit" in the video but says: "It's just that the reality for women in India is Explicit."

The bombaebs say they are "just a couple of girls trying to open their viewers' eyes" and appealing for more men who have the courage and integrity to say "Meri Beti Meri Shaan".
