Nikkita Chanda is the perfect jasmine, Naomi looks nothing like jasmine

both are beautiful, but Jasmine is an Arab princess, there should be a Desi disney princess tbh

There are Indians in every corner of the globe lol Churchill was right, so much breeding like rabbits

she is ugly

I don’t think she suited the role of Princess jasmine at all, there were far better & gorgeous actresses than her to do the role
