|"Taking Her Name Is A Sin"
Neil Nitin Mukesh won't take names but vents against his reported ex-girlfriend even as he's on the threshold of a new relationship
What's happening in your life right now?
Life is awesome. I'm busy with work and my hobbies. I'm hunting for good work too.
And what about love?
Well, I'm not looking for love because I've learnt that love eventually finds you. I like someone a lot right now, let's see what happens.
Would you like to share something about her?
Well, I was in a long term relationship earlier. But the girl and her family were dishonest. They were 'cheaters'. I am simple and an open book. I don't like ambitious and materialistic people. The girl, whom I like now is not ambitious and is genuine. And if we ever get into a relationship, she wouldn't hide it like the earlier one did. The previous one even said, 'I've met Neil only twice in my life'! She is a closed chapter and not worth a mention. Taking her name is a sin. But I hope this girl 'I've recently met eventually says yes to me. Right now, we are good friends. We both want to make sure it's worth it.
Who is this mystery girl?
I guess by now all of you know who she is.
That's a beautiful name. I really like her a lot. We are doing a film together. It's a highly conceptualised horror flick. We meet often. She's a lovely person. She's everything a woman should be and, most important, she's a clear soul. I don't know if she likes me, I've never asked her. But she knows I like her. We are letting life take its course. I don't believe in red carpet affairs and neither does she. She's got her head on her shoulders. She's well brought up; her sister Himani is dear to me. I respect them .Well, in my mind we are together. I just hope one day she wakes up and says, 'You're the one for me.'
What's the alternative to love?
For me it's music, painting and photography. I have many hobbies. I also like being with friends and family.
What's your idea of a perfect date?
Being with your woman, getting to know each other and sharing everything. My woman should know everything about me. A perfect evening would be with some music playing, perhaps a violinist in the background. I'm ready for every sacrifice in a relationship. Like I would eat everything she likes, even if I hated it.
What would be an ideal gift for your woman?
The best gift for a woman would be my loyalty.
Okay, which actress have you enjoyed working with the most?
Deepika Padukone. She was the best possible co-star (Lafangey Parindey) I could have had. She's one of the strongest women I've met in my life. I have immense respect for her.
