“Friend? New Bollywood friend?”
  1. When someone doesn’t agree your Bollywood heartthrob is hot, you know sh**’s about to go down.

  1. I’ve enjoyed reading this, but, it’s only angled from a female perspective. Can someone put one together showing signs from a guys point of view – and – signs of how guys are addicted to Bollywood too?


    1. Hi, That sounds like a brilliant idea, you’re completely right. It’s definitely hard to get a male’s perspective being a group of four girls. Maybe you can give us an idea from a male’s point of view?
