Over the years, Bollywood has shown us love in a variety of hues. Some are adorable adolescent stories, while others are at an age when finding love is the last thing you anticipate.
We also caught a glimpse of the factor that frequently complicates things for lovers in a number of these situations: the long distance. Being connected by the love between two people can be one of the most difficult situations when there is physical distance.
However, a few Bollywood movies have perfectly caught the essence of long distance relationships, and they are featured below.
