Single and eligible - Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor says he loves attention and adulation from his female fans.
"I feel very happy and glad about it. I like it (female attention), it's nice," Shahid told IANS.
The 30-year-old, who was earlier dating Kareena Kapoor and was rumoured to be in a relationship with Priyanka Chopra, admits he wasn't always comfortable with compliments from the fairer sex.
"Initially I used to not know how to deal with it. I used to get flustered and didn't know how to react to it. But now, I like it. It feels good.
"I have learnt to accept the fact that this is what I wanted and it is good to know that people like you and they love you. It is wonderful to feel so. So yes, I like it, I love it," said Shahid, flashing his dimpled smile.
The dashing actor, whose work in his father Pankaj Kapoor's directorial debut Mausam won him many praises, loved working in the romantic saga.
But asked about romance in his life, he replied: "I have no idea about my love story. I think love is the most unpredictable thing and it happens when you least expect it, and the way it turns out to be, you never thought it would.
"That's the beauty of romance… you never know how it's going to be, you can't predict it. But when it happens, I guess I'll know! Till then, even I am guessing how my love story would be," he said.
Shahid's next project is Kunal Kohli's Teri Meri Kahaani, co-starring Priyanka, with whom he shared a crackling chemistry in Vishal Bharadwaj's Kaminey.
