Even though I believe that our movies may have irreparably ruined my love life, I still live in some form of hope – hope that, one day, the perfect one will come along as if he just walked out of a Yash Chopra Bollywood film. The idea of this sparked a long discussion amongst us girls in the office, and led to the creation of the Bollywood Husband Checklist – qualities a guy must have in order to be the Bollywood man of our dreams. Yes, you’re welcome; feel free to print out this list and attach it with those arranged marriage proposals your parents are hell-bent on sending out.

Must know how to be my friend

This is the first step, kyunki pyar dosti hai. Agar woh mera sabse acha dost nahin ban sakta, toh main usse kabhi pyaar kar hi nahin sakti.

Must be able to pull me aboard a moving train

Because it would really suck if I wanted to have my big Bollywood moment but ended up falling flat on the platform instead.

Must be willing to drop everything to sing songs with me at an exotic location

If there’s one thing about Bollywood movies I’d like to make real, this is it: the ability to go (read: teleport) to exotic locations just to sing a love song.

Must know how to plan the right date

Everyone can do dinner and a movie, but how many are willing to go through the efforts to do it this way?

Must love every one of my weird relatives

We’re sort of a strange bunch, but he’s going to have to be able to deal with everyone!

Must stick by my side, come what may

‘Cause things can get rough, but it’s okay if someone’s by your side.

Must be willing to listen to my ramblings

I don’t know about you, but I can go off on some weird tangents at times. And I need someone who’ll be able to listen, regardless.

Must be ready to do sweet things for me

Because love is in the tiny details.

Must be willing to do whatever it takes to make it work

So my dad’s probably not going to make you work at a quarry to earn 2000rs a month, but the principle still stands.

What would you add to your checklist?
