With the frosty weather making its presence felt in many parts of the country and across, here's sitting back, in your warmest woollies with a steaming cup of hot chocolate, to rivet over the Winter Wonderland of Bollywood.

The super couple is all set to flaunt their latest avatars together in buddy Karan Johar's My Name is Khan.

Honeymoon in paradise and yet Arvind Swamy looks none too pleased walking in the snow while lugging an evidently gleeful wifey.
