This Valentine's Week, Let's Revisit Banarasi Love with Dhanush and Sonam Kapoor
SPONSORED

Every lover in India, has only one inspiration, BOLLYWOOD!

A Hindu boy falls in love with a Muslim girl on the Ghats of Banaras. He is desperate to be in a relationship with her, enough to ask his friend to help him make her fall in love. But just when he thinks that the girl has fallen in love with him, her father sends her to study in another city. There she falls in love with someone else...

I know, the synopsis of this film is the same as most Bollywood films, but if you believe in unrequited one-sided love, heartbreak and hoping till the last breath that the girl would one day reciprocate love, Raanjhanaa is the perfect movie for you.  

How about we take a look this Banarasi love story...

It all began when Kundan saw Zoya for the first time...
