Recently, we celebrated Phagwa. Originating in India, and also known as Holi, the festival of colours is more than just people smearing bright and beautiful powders on each other. Accompanied by lively dancing, music and singing, Holi has set many a memorable scene in movies as recent as last year’s Ram-Leela, and as far back as the 1975 action-adventure Sholay, which starred Amitabh Bachchan. 


Bachchan didn’t celebrate this year, though. The festival fell at the same time as his daughter Schweta Nanda’s 40th birthday and the passing of some relatives. Via his blog, he said: “it would be disrespectful to be immersed in the colours of abandon and joy when some among us mourn.” Guess Amitabh is not as invulnerable as we think.


And who’s more vulnerable than a girl in love? Ileana D’Cruz, who will be soon seen in David Dhawan’s Main Tera Hero, confirmed just that. She was recently quoted as saying: “I’ve been an absolute fool in love. I’ve done silly things. Maybe because I’m a complete romantic.” 


She has wisened to what she wants and will not make the same mistake twice. So, if you are an honest, respectful, well-mannered and funny young man, the two-film old starlet is looking for you! 


Maybe Ileana doesn’t have to look too far! She and Varun Dhawan, her hunky Main Tera Hero co-star, share amazing onscreen chemistry, and fits the bill. 


Unfortunately, she may have to change his mind about dating actresses, since that is a big no-no for him. May not hurt to try, right?
