Bad news for men! Item gal Deepal Shaw is not game for marriage and is quite candid about it. So, what is it that puts the Kabhi Aar Kabhi Paar babe off wedlock?

Deepal says, "I don't feel like getting married. I have seen people around me maintaining strange physical intimacy with others even after marriage. They malign the true spirit of this social institution of marriage. I have seen gays, lesbians, unsuccessful marriages, playboys, all of that. After seeing all this, I feel it's better to have a live-in relationship rather than getting married. Quite often young couples consult marriage counsellors with their problems. After watching all this, I decided I am better off staying alone rather than tying the knot."

Asked about her love life, she says, "I believe that I am married to my work. I don't have any boyfriend and neither do I want anyone. I am a very egoistic girl and don't find boys very friendly. I have a very handful of friends but none of them is so close to my heart that I feel anyone of them as my heartthrob."

Talking about her sex appeal she says, "Every actress gives credit to her physical features for her sex appeal. But I feel that the source of my sex appeal is my confidence. The more confident I am, the sexier I look. If I am called a sex symbol, it's a nice compliment for me. I like such compliments but at the same time I don't want to be typecast or limit myself. I have lot of time and I am just few years old. If I stick to one image, I may not be able to justify my talent. Since I know my worth, I feel that by limiting myself to one image, I will be doing injustice to my career."
