Don’t compare me with Kareena, Katrina or Priyanka:
Let’s be honest. Kareena Kapoor, Katrina Kaif and Priyanka Chopra are in another league altogether. They have been here for almost 10 years. I don’t think it is fair to compare me with them. They also should not be compared to newcomers. Even Deepika (Padukone) was around before me and she has done more films than I have. She has probably done 10 films by now. I have done just two. I am doing the films I want to do.
Tall, dark, handsome men are not for me:
I need to find the guy attractive. If I don’t find him attractive, why the hell will I go for him? And to get attracted to him he has to look good. The thing is, I don’t fall for guys who are tall dark and handsome – the perfect looking kind. I tend to only fall for scruffy looking men. I like lean, scruffy, unmade men because they don’t try too hard to look good. I get attracted to such men. Also I like men who speak really well. I usually fall for men who other women are not falling for!
I don’t have ‘friends’ in the industry:
I'm friends with people I work with like Maneesh Sharma, the director of Band Baja Baraat. Yeah I talk to Shahid once in a while, because we get along well. I speak to Ranvir Singh (co-star in the upcoming Band Baja Baraat). When we were shooting we would hang out but now that we are not, we don’t talk much. So no, I don’t think I have friends in the industry.
Being taken for granted is the worst thing in a relationship:
Initially when you start seeing each other everything is nice and rosy. But the minute you start taking your partner for granted that’s when you begin to cheat, that’s when you start to give a hard time to the person and that’s when you start getting rude with the person. One of the most important things for me in a relationship would be, ‘Don’t ever take me for granted and I am not going to take you for granted.’ Being taken for granted is the worst thing.
I wouldn’t forgive a man who cheated on me:
I wouldn’t. And if I did it out of my love for him, I don’t think I would be able to forget it. And since I wouldn’t be able to forget it I would always be suspicious and angry. And if it’s repressed anger, it’s going to keep disturbing the relationship. I doubt if I am ever going to find love because my fundas of a relationship seem too primitive. Women think so what if he cheated maybe I’ll also cheat and get even! But with my idea of a relationship, I don’t know if I am going to be able to find someone who thinks the same way as I do.
I had a crush on a gay man:
No guy’s ever wooed me. You may find something about yourself special. But you wait for that one person to discover that special quality in you. But I have not come close to someone who’s made me feel special. I wish I was well-travelled to make a judgement on which nation’s men I find most attractive. But I like men who are Oriental. I like Thai men, the tall ones. I find some of them really good looking. One of my first crushes happened when I had gone to shoot an ad in Bangkok. There I met a really good-looking Thai guy. He was much older. Later on I found out that he was gay and I was really sad.
