No matter how old we get or how mature we claim to be, there will always be a little teenage girl inside all of us that still fantasizes about Sharukh Khan from Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge because who doesn’t want to be reunited with their one true love in the middle of a sarso ka khet? Or the dark, brooding desi version of the conflicted hero with a tortured past and absolve him of his sins like Siddhart Malhotra in Ek Villain?
Admit it, you have, at least once wished that whenever someone talked about your shaadi or has said something remotely resembling “Tere liye ek rishta aya hai”, you’ve hoped against hope that it is one of the many attractive Bollywood movie characters walking through the door. But then again, wishful thinking can only get you so far.
So how about you take a look below at this list of the perfect husband material that every woman wishes for, as provided to us, so generally by Bollywood:

Alright, he may not be absolutely perfect but you have to give him brownie point for his fidelity to his wife which remains constant throughout the movie.
