You can now take actor Gul Panag for a Valentine’s Day date on well, a ‘super discount’ of 90%! A discount deals website is offering a romantic date in Mumbai with beauty queen-turned actor, Gul Panag, for Rs 50,000. It was initially priced at around Rs 5,00,000.

Under SnapDeal.com’s ‘Date with Me’ scheme, “the person buys the date on Valentine’s Day, and enjoys it on a mutually convenient day. It will be an adventure activity and a meal for a few hours,” says Kunal Bahl, CEO of the website.

“It is attractively priced and there is no bid but only buying,” he adds. Panag, on her part, has no qualms being ‘on sale’ for a day. “I think it’s a great idea ... I like to be part of experiments, and this was surely interesting,” she says. And what would be her saving grace if she lands with some starry-eyed fan”? I’ll take it as it comes,” says the Turning 30 actor.

The proceeds of the campaign will be donated to Gul’s charity — The Col Shamsher Singh Foundation. Leading Hollywood celebrities like Scarlett Johansson, Charlize Theron and Robert Pattinson have already gone under the hammer for a date for charity over the last few years.
