Waves, stares and Salman can't stop couple from getting cosy in Bandra
A couple get cosy at Mumbai's iconic Bandra Bandstand unmindful of huge waves crashing into rocks near them and people staring. Even prospect of superstar Salman Khan looking on doesn't bother them
They say being in love makes you braver in the face of trouble. It gives you to strength to face all kinds of adversities in life. But there's another school of thought that says that 'love makes you blind'. Now, it may seem a cliche to some, but there's scientific evidence to prove the blinding nature of love. This inability to see what's in front of one self can be life-threatening.
Now, depending on your perspective you will see this couple in Mumbai as either being brave or 'blind' to the risks surrounding them.

Unmindful of the stares from passers-by, the passionate duo ventured out into the rocks at Bandstand in Bandra -- a famous lovers' point -- to get romantic.

So lost were they in their own world, that the cosy couple, who were caught on camera at around 4.30 pm, were oblivious of everything around them, even the high tide and huge waves crashing into the rocks near them.

The location is risky because in January 2016 a college girl and a youth, who jumped into the waters to save her, drowned in the sea off Bandra Bandstand in Mumbai. Three college girls, all residents of Bainganwadi in suburban Govandi, aged between 18 and 19 years, had gone to the seaface to picnic. They were clicking selfies when one of them, Tarranum, slipped into the sea, he said. Hearing their screams, a local youth, Rajesh Walunj, a local resident, jumped in and managed to fish out two of them. When he dived in again to locate Tarranum Shaikh, he disappeared.

Another interesting aspect about this location is it was opposite Salman Khan's house. So while the world gathers outside Salman's house to catch a glimpse of the Bollywood superstar, this was the view that he was greeted with from his balcony at Bandra Bandstand.
