I just realized its been AGES since someone’s PR sent me one of these very random (and yet so very entertaining) puff profile pieces on struggling stars. Well the PR machinery rarely disappoints! Here’s one I got today; meet Gautam Rode, the first thing you should know about him (as the email I got ensured I did) is that he doesn’t believe in live-in relationship (not relationships even, just the one apparently) oh go break my heart why don’t you.
PR: “Having done more than 40 commercials, 2 big banner movies, many television shows and music albums, Gautam Rode speaks about the wannabe woman in his life.”
From this I am not entirely sure if Mr. Rode (or the PR) knows what “wannabe” actually means…
PR: “What ideal qualities would you want in your woman?”
Gautam Rode: “She should be clear-hearted and caring. More then external beauty I would prefer my woman to be internally beautiful.”
I could make some clean artery joke here but I won’t.
PR: “Hottest getaway with her?”
Gautam Rode: “I would love to spend my days with her the beautiful city Trivadrum.”
Unclear again if the her he’s referring to here is his wannabe woman or the beautiful city of Trivandrum.
PR: “Would you go for a live-in relationship if necessary?”
Gautam Rode: “No, I don’t believe in that. We have to respect and follow the rich culture of our great country India.”
Yikes. (Love the :if necessary” part by the PR too.)
PR: “If you found your partner having a fling with your best friend, what would you do?”
Gautam Rode: “See, first of all a person becomes your best friend only after you know each other in and out. Then too any such incident happens than I will prefer to come out from that relationship.”
Awww, sounds like he speaks from bitter experience doesn’t it?
PR: “Would you allow your future wife to wear short outfits?”
Gautam Rode: “Yeah, why not? She can wear anything she likes depending on the occasion. But at the same time she should be sensible enough to understand whether that particular outfit suits her beauty.”
PR: “Can men and woman ever have a platonic relationship?”
Gautam Rode: “Yeah, they can surely have it.”
Good to know G, good to know!
PR: “One night stand or commitment?”
Gautam Rode” “At this moment neither of them. At present I just want to be focused on my career.”
Lol, was the PR hitting on him here? I feel his views on live-in relationships should lean him towards commitment, but you never know.
PR: “What if your woman is earning more than you?”
Gautam Rode: “I will be happy as ultimately our overall earning would be more.”
As they say in the motherland, “sharing is caring.”
PR: “Your take on the institution of marriage from the point of view of a bachelor?”
Gautam Rode: “If you are a bachelor than you will feel a little scared as life changes after marriage. But I think once you get in terms with your new relationship than gradually life starts getting simpler.”
Gautam, if I were you; I’d be afraid, very afraid too :)
