Romance and India

Romance and love has had a rich influence on Indian art and culture. What are some of your favourite Indian romantic stories? Be it fact or fiction. The love story of Dilip Kumar and Madhubala is one such for me.

  1. I think Dharmendra and Hema Malini….it requires guts to marry the one you love when you already have a wife and kids in tow….and impart equal respect to the relationship and accord her a satus in the society*p*

  2. I would go for Prithviraj Chauhan and Samyukta. Their love story is almost too dramatic to be true. I admired their story right from the moment I read about them in my standard 8 History book.*p*

  3. There are many classic stories like Heer-Ranjha, Salim-Anarkali and yes, the recently picturised, BajiRao Mastani that does show us that all Indians, nay all humans, love romance.*p*
