TO MARK 20 YEARS SINCE THE RELEASE OF OF CULT ROMANTIC FILM ‘DILWALE DULHANIA LE JAYENGE’, WE TAKE A LOOK AT BOLLYWOOD’S EVERGREEN ON-SCREEN COUPLES

Here is one place on earth where romance rules all 365 days of the year.
Romantic candies are to Bollywood what Thriller is to Hollywood.
The B’wood screen is a place where you fall and rise in love, sing duets, relish the pangs of separation, and unite in a godly embrace.
It is the only place on earth where THE END means THE BEGINNING
