Actor Neha Dhupia, who has done films such as Ek Chalis Ki Last Local, Mithya, Dasvidaniya, Phas Gaye Re Obama and more recently Maximum, of late judged the Delhi auditions of Bindass TV’s upcoming reality show Superdude.

Since the show is about how to be an ideal man, we asked Dhupia the
qualities in a man that would surely win her heart. “I would love to go out on a date with a guy who doesn’t try to be a dude.
And of course, chivalry is another thing that I feel is indispensable as I am a complete army brat,” said the 31-year-old.
Dhupia also spoke to us about her upcoming films and meeting army jawaans in Jammu and Kashmir as part of a documentary.
There’s a buzz that the actor will be seen doing her first solo item number in filmmaker Tigmanshu Dhulia’s forthcoming sequel to Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster.
On her film journey
I am very excited and happy about the kind of movie offers coming my way. However, there sure are times when I feel dissatisfied
I’ve learnt that a serious relationship needs time.
As of now, I don’t have the luxury of time and so, no love. It’s also very important to find the right guy
On Indian winners at London Olympics
I congratulate all of them. We have great talent but there’s a long way to go as far as the performance of Indian sportspersons on a global platform is concerned
On meeting the army soldiers in J&K
It was an emotional roller coaster for me. I cried, I laughed, I danced, I was angry... there was no emotion I didn’t feel. It was quite unnerving to hear their stories
On future projects
My film Rush (which also stars Emraan Hashmi and Sagarika Ghatge) will release in October. I can’t talk about other projects at the moment
