It is the First Sunday of August and we have started bustling across the streets to plan and celebrate with our gangs. But then there also is a good lot of us who are miles away from our mates or are simply no less than a bed bug. So, if you are one of those snuggly creatures, then call in your gang of bugs or curl up alone with a bowl of popcorn in front of your smart TV sets.
Here is a gold-mine of Bollywood movies that would make you weep and yearn for your buddies.
