Amrita Rao is no doubt one of the most beautiful among the upcoming heroines in Bollywood. She has managed to grab the attention of the filmmakers and public through her fabulous performance in Vivah opposite Shahid Kapoor. She has a few more films in her kitty including Telugu film Athidhi. Now, she speaks about her her dream man and much more.
Excerpts from the interview:
What are the must have qualities in your man?
I would want him to have a lot of patience. I would want him to calm me down when I get flustered about something. I would want him to really support me and tell me whenever he feels I am wrong. Above all he should respect his parents and be a thorough gentleman.
And he would be from Bollywood or from outside?
It's not necessary that my dream man would be belonging to Bollywood only. He can be an outsider too.
Internal or external beauty. Which matters more to you?
I think I have always said that personality comes first. Your looks cannot change your personality, but your personality can definitely change the looks for you.
Is a sense of humour a must?
I think yes. The first thing, which would be attractive about a person, would be his sense of humour.
Your first crush.....
During my school days, I used to like a cricketer. But now I feel too embarrassed to even take his name. He is out of the team now.
If you had to date a historical character, who would he be and why?
I guess it must be Bhagat Singh. I have worked in the movie The Legend of Bhagat Singh and was very inspired by him. At the young age of 23 he was hanged for the sacrifices he made for our country. It's not easy to make yourself heard and do something of that sort.
What if the guy you like turns out to be a gay?
He would still be a good friend.
If you are going out for a date and someone makes a pass at you; would you want your guy to fight with him?
I have seen that happen in the movies and have always been inspired when Shahrukh Khan does it, like in Baazigar and Darr. So, why not?
Men of any particular sun sign, with whom you gel well?
I'm not much into sun signs. I certainly have many friends who are guys but I haven't really asked them about their sun signs. So I can't say.
