"I’m a die-hard romantic. To me, effort is sexy" says Kriti Sanon about what romance means to her.
Best known for her roles in Raabta, Bareilly Ki Barfi, and Luka Chuppi, here she talks about the romance of small gestures, the importance of chemistry and her dream wedding—a big fat Punjabi affair in a small European island.
What does romance mean to you?
I’m a die-hard romantic. To me, effort is sexy. It’s about the little things you do for your partner without an occasion, without being asked—say someone knows I’m feeling cold and offers their jacket without me asking for it. We tend to take our partners for granted, and it’s important to continue to do what you did at the beginning of a relationship, even when that ‘honeymoon phase’ is gone. It’s nice once in a while to dress up for each other. Romance is more about gestures than material things.
What qualities do you look for in a partner?
Chemistry, a good personality, sense of humour, compassion, and respect. I also want someone I can really talk to. And of course, loyalty is very, very important.
How would you like to be proposed to?
In a romantic place, a location I would remember for the rest of my life. [We should be] either completely alone or with people who really matter. I imagine it as a moment in which someone just looks in my eyes and says what he truly feels. And I don’t mind the kneeling down with the ring!
