Bollywood is known for its distinctive style of portraying love stories; by adding spice, drama, but majorly by adding the angle of a triangle, the latest entry to the list being Bareilly Ki Barfi. Starring Rajkummar Rao, Ayushmann Khurana, and Kriti Sanon in the lead, the trailer of the film looks extremely promising and it seems like just the kind of rom-com we are looking for this season. The three-minute trailer takes us through the lanes of Bareilly along with a dose of Kriti's jhumkas and thumkas which are an entirely different avatar from what we saw in Raabta. Rajkummar Rao and Ayushmann Khurana who were last seen in Behen Hogi Teri and Meri Pyaari Bindu respectively are adding a lot of flavor to the movie. Helmed by the critically acclaimed Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari of the Nil Battey Sannata fame, the movie seems like it's going to be a fun watch. While that is still a few days away, let's look at some of the other love triangles we have seen in the recent years.
