He has been facing a lot of flak for his alleged link-ups lately and guess who has come out in defense of actor Ranbir Kapoor — Simi aunty. "I have seen Ranbir growing up and I think the media has completely gone overboard about his Casanova image," says actor-turned-host Simi Garewal, who reveals that Ranbir will reveal all on her new show Simi Selects India’s Most Desirable, on Star World.
Garewal’s Kapoor association goes back to the days when she acted in Raj Kapoor’s Mera Naam Joker and Rishi Kapoor starrer Karz. Popularly known as ‘The Lady in White’ for usually wearing her signature white clothes, she says she is obsessed with the colour.
"It’s both a fascination and obsession with white. I feel good when I wear that colour," says Garewal, who is known for her age-defying looks, refined language and her long running chat show Rendezvous with Simi Garewal.
Last seen in Rukhsat in 1988, she is also contemplating a big-screen comeback. "I have an offer. I might be doing that… may be in October," says Garewal, who has also turned a writer. "I have written a script for a film. It’s a human drama and I’m in discussions with people to acquire it," she says.
Ask if she will also helm the project as a director, she says, "I don’t want to direct because it’s very laborious. But as long as I can keep creative control and see that it’s going like my script, it will be good enough for me."
But will she act in the film? "No, you won’t see me acting in it," says Garewal, adding, "I feel the role demands somebody else."
