Where actresses in the industry run away from the question of marriage or turn furious with the question of marriage and love, Vidya Balancomes clear about getting married and she also divulged about her failure in love.
Talking about finding her Prince Charming, Vidya told, “I haven’t come across someone I want to spend the rest of my life with. My parents want me to get married, but it’s not like they think it will happen tomorrow. Even they want me to marry someone I’m sure about. My parents encourage me to meet people and keep saying that I should find the right person. They want me to keep my eyes open, rather open my eyes wider (laughs). Let’s just say that they want me to socialise more often. I think they realise that I don’t see myself getting into an arranged marriage.”
Vidya Balan confesses that she had been into a serious relationship but it did not work out. But she still believes in true love and falling in love. “I am a hopeless romantic at heart. I believe that it’s better to have loved and lost rather than never to have loved at all.”
When she was asked what kind of a man would she want if she gets married, Vidya says, “Please reframe your question. There is no ‘if’. I want to categorically tell you that I want to get married. I want to have a husband and a family – I’d love that (pauses). I don’t believe in casual relationships and I can never be in a live-in relationship.”
“I’ll marry someone who gives me some butterflies in my stomach. Someone like George Clooney. His age is now beginning to show, so maybe someone younger. He should be someone I can discuss anything under the sun with. Most importantly, he should be very self-assured,” adds Vidya.
