Get inspired from Bollywood and holiday in style!

All work and no play make everybody dull.

Guess that’s why man invented the concept of holidays?

With beauty to behold and bliss to experience, nothing rejuvenates like a much-deserved escape from routine.

Summer is slowly but surely kicking in. Are you ready with your itinerary yet?

All right, so while you still get that leave sanctioned, here’s a thing or two you could learn from Bollywood on the art of holidaying.

Don’t forget to pack a swimsuit. All those 'love your tan' compliments you receive on return after hours of idling on the beach will make it totally worth the effort.

Find out about the local festivals around the time you’re visiting, like Spain’s Tomatina or Germany’s Oktoberfest to make the most of your trip.

Shop till you drop. Nothing like some heartfelt retail therapy to turn a good vacation into a great one, don’t you agree?


Honeymoon Travels

Holidays are the best time to self explore and embrace your wild side. Do something completely out of character. It could be parasailing in a sari.

Try local cuisines but don’t experiment with food too much at foreign shores. Things can get fishy.

Like literally.

Put on a cool hat and unwind with chilled beer for company.

Speaking of spirits, save some cheap champagne to douse your partner in. Try this ONLY if she’s a sport like Juhi Chawla.

Think about it, lifetime bragging rights guaranteed.

Sorry Gurinder, but we have photogenic evidence to believe ball on the beach is way more fun than bhaji on the beach. So don’t forget to pack one next to the bikinis.

Like the famous saying goes, there’s plenty of fish in the sea. Rods, reels, bait and wait, yeah?
