'I can't handle hunks'
Want to gain Neha Dhupia's attention? Take these hints.tabloid Updated: Jul 24, 2006 14:37 IST
If you're a man looking to gain the attention of sultry Indian actress Neha Dhupia, here's a hint: Stay out of the salon, and get in the kitchen.
Dhupia says handsome or vain men don't interest her, and stresses that manicures should be left to women.
The 26-year-old former Miss India gained popularity as an actress in the 2004 flick "Julie," in which she played a call girl who reveals her true life on a live television broadcast. She said she wasn't planning to marry yet, but "definitely in the near future."
The disclaimer: "There is very little space in my heart, as it is filled with love for my parents."
Dhupia has been romantically linked in media reports with the son of fashion designer Ritu Kumar, but she has said they are just friends.
"Industry men don't interest me that much. I can't discuss work after I pack up ... I cannot handle good-looking hunks and I don't like metrosexual men, either," she said.
"I would definitely like to tell them one thing: Please leave the manicures and pedicures to the ladies."
Dhupia said apart from acting, her current main interest was cooking.
"I am improving my culinary skills ... The way to my heart is through my stomach," she said.
