A matter of appearance

Ever noticed how Bollywood actors always end up with either fellow actors or someone rich? It's almost like a script that all filmi stars adhere to. When was the last time an actor fell for not-so-rich commoner? It's a matter of convenience more than anything else. Nothing righteous about it but it's funny how the films they act in show the dominance of love over class. As if the idea of love in our society is not elitist. Off the big screen, rich sticks with rich and poor sticks with poor. The divide is too wide for cinema to fill. Again, nothing righteous about it but it's funny how they say love is unconditional when the very basis of an affair is based on the way how the couple will look like to others than to each other.
