Commitment! It usually scares the hell out of all-male species, isn’t it right men? You may love someone deeply and the thought of them being with someone else would scare you. But when the same person talks about their future with you, you’d be scared. You would tell her that you are not sure about settling down and that you are not ready to have that talk.

If you have been dating for a really long time, it’s time to ask yourself if she is the one, the one you want for your entire life and the one you’d love forever.

This is how you know is she is one for you:

Bollywood – the biggest movie-making industry in India is full of surprises (sometimes good and sometimes bad). The last year has been another fabulous year in terms of a variety of content but the box office was appalling. Uri emerged as a surprise hit of the year while Kabir Singh made headlines both with controversy and box office. We witnessed brave movies like Article 15 & Section 375, enjoyed mindless comedies like Total Dhamaal & Housefull 4, cried at the heartfelt tale of The Sky is Pink & Super 30, lauded the social dramas like Dreamgirl & Bala, felt proud with women protagonists in Saand Ki Aankh & Mardaani 2, and got swept away with Gully Boy & Judgementall Hai Kya.

2020 has started and we are almost at the end of January where we already enjoyed Chhapak, Tanhaji, & Panga. Tanhaji emerged as a BO winner while Chhapak touched our souls. Panga proved again that there is currently no competitor to Kangana Ranaut.

The rest of the much-awaited Bollywood movies of 2020 are listed below:

Jawaani Jaaneman- Releasing on 31st Jan 2020

The trailer gave that cool and outstanding vibe with Saif Ali Khan oozing charm like a 25-year-old. Tabu is playing the role of a long lost girlfriend of Saif and they share a daughter.
