1. First up, Parineeti!
Sadly, a film like Ishaqzaade comes only once in a .... never mind! Here's wishing that Daawat-e-Ishq will make its way to the hallowed list. Even if it doesn't, there's Parineeti. She's bubbly, chirpy, and lends oodles of energy to whatever set-up she is part of.

2. Add Aditya Roy Kapoor to the mix
Aditya Roy Kapur has a fan-following of his own ever since his Aashiqui 2 rocked at the box office last year. He's been on top of the list of drool-worthy men in Bollywood. Some die-hard fans say they flock to theatres simply to watch him. Many of them also say they are curious to see the non-drunkard side of his personality!

3. Garnish it with love, romance YRF style
No exaggerations here, but more than half of the typical Bollywood image is what the Yash Raj Films' (YRF) production house gave us. The otherwise non-existent romance, love and courtesy shown in their movies just mesmerises our audience. Rest assured, they never go wrong with it.

4. Put it all on a beautiful, colourful canvas
The Dharma/YRF camp of producers never shy away from foreign locales. They brought the charming foreign locations like Spain and Switzerland to Indian cinema. However, in last few years, they have proved that they can make domestic locations look just as beautiful.

5. And then there is food
Like its name suggests, the film has been going big on the gastronomical trip its plot takes. In fact, the cast is on #FoodYatra as part of their promotions. From Lucknow's tunday kebabs to Hyderabadi biryani, we have seen it all in the film's trailers. Foodies will flock to the theatre just for the 'Daawat' that the filmmakers promise.
