I am planning to get lessons on the flute. I do love the bansuri flute, but I am unsure if it's a good idea to start getting lessons on bansuri instead of western flute as almost complete beginner to music theory and playing music.

Would it be ok for me to find a teacher that teaches bansuri or should I look for a teacher that teaches the western flute if my goal in the end is to play bansuri flute?

If you want to play bansuri flute, take lessons on bansuri flute.

Much of what you learn will of course be transferable to western flute if required.

Bansuri is a best start. Indian notation is very simple if compared to Western one. The flute sounds just magical (but that's subjective to taste).
