Revisiting Movies: Cocktail explains, “Heart has its Reasons”

How often do most of us relate to a fictional character, that too in a Bollywood Movie. Very rare? Right, but if we consider the characters created by Imtiaz Ali, almost all of them felt relatable at some point in our life. Veronica from Cocktail is the one who is free spirited, fierce and bold. These reasons are enough to prove her as the strongest character and the real hero of the film. She’s independent and confident. Veronica is the coolest friend one could ask for. Bff to Meera (Diana Penty) in the film, she’s the one everyone would love to have in their lives.

As modern Veronica is, similarly she’s traditional and people can relate to her both sides. She doesn’t differentiate between love and friendship. She can spoil you with all her love. Veronica is one of the strongest characters in Bollywood we have seen in the last decade.
