Romancing the winter, Bollywood style
When it gets cold, the warmth sets in. As contradictory as it sounds, it's true, especially in Bollywood.
A whole lot of romance ensues when the happy hero and demure heroine get together against the vast landscapes of pristine white snow and dry, stark trees. The chillier it looks, the cozier they get. Isn't that what on-screen chemistry is all about?
With the frosty weather making its presence felt in many parts of the country and across, here's sitting back, in your warmest woollies with a steaming cup of hot chocolate, to rivet over the Winter Wonderland of Bollywood.

Honeymoon in paradise and yet Arvind Swamy looks none too pleased walking in the snow while lugging an evidently gleeful wifey.
