She watched Bollywood movies growing up and had a strong sense of imagination as to what love looks like and feels like.
The slow motion, the grand proposal, a perfect man and their more than perfect big fat Indian wedding.
If only, these things could be fulfilled. A hopeless romantic in a pursuit of a finding ‘the one’.
She got into many relationships but none of them were even close to the relationship Rahul and Anjali shared in ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’.
She wanted a love story of her own. For once, she wanted to be the ‘heroine’ in her story.
As she came close to her “marriageable age”, she had lost all hope of ever having her love story.
Little did she knew, the man she was searching for had been beside her since forever.
She remembered, how he would open doors for her, how he would hold her hand while crossing the road, how he could not see a single tear in her eye.
He took care of her as no man had ever.
That what mattered to her.
She only wanted these small moments.
These moments! These were the moments she was looking for.
She knew it was him. It was her best friend.
How you ask?
The one thing she ever learnt from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai was ‘love is friendship’.
How could she forget this one thing her entire life?
How could she not realize?
It was him.
It had been always been him.
She ran towards him and confessed her feelings. He could only utter,” I love you”.
He said, “Why did you take so long!”.
She just hugged him even tighter.
Just being in his arms, she got her love story. The love she had always imagined.
The best friends to lovers.
