The series is about love that knows no boundaries of age, race, gender or well, anything. Set in the city of dreams – Mumbai, the stories seem to focus on love that is real and yet, just as fairy-tale as the books we read.
For anyone who’s watched Modern Love based on personal essays from the New York Times column, the wait is almost impossible. From the looks of the trailer, the series explores love in different bonds and situations – after marriage, the kind that is young and even love that seeks acceptance from the world.
All of this wrapped with the energy of Mumbai, to fall in love with – the kind that keeps one going.
