I'm single and still complete: Vikram Bhatt

Mumbai, March 15 (IANS) After a couple of break-ups that made headlines, director Vikram Bhatt says he is not really looking for love any more. While he is not bitter about it, the filmmaker admits that he doesn't need the constant presence of a woman to complete his life.

"I have realised that no one but you can complete yourself. It is actually nonsense to seek someone to be complete in life. You can be single and still so complete," Bhatt, who directed Aamir Khan-starrer hit film "Ghulam", told IANS.

"I am not at all unhappy in my current state and am in fact raring to go as far as my personal and professional life is concerned," the 43-year-old said.

The director, who has dated actresses Sushmita Sen and Ameesha Patel, is single now, but neither has he closed himself from the outside world nor is he turning out to be a recluse.

"I am happy to be living life the way it is currently and don't intend to mould it any differently. However, I am not bitter at all. Why should I be? But now the love which comes to me has to be really special," he adds while looking forward to a new phase in his personal as well as professional life.

When Bhatt broke up with Ameesha, he had refused to divulge any details about what had transpired between them. He said: "What's the point of going into the past and talking about why and when it happened?"

He was also in for a surprise when Ameesha threw a birthday party for him along with other friends soon after their break-up.

After loving three women in his life for a major duration - his ex-wife Aditi, Sushmita and Ameesha, it appears Bhatt has just grown over love and is taking it rather easy with no strings attached.

"See, the fact is I don't see myself reaching home in the night, feeling lonely and then getting the feeling that 'arrey yaar, it's bad to be alone; I should rather hook up with someone'.

"Yes, I will give love a chance but then it has to be indeed 'love'. Let that happen naturally," said Bhatt, whose film "Ankahee" was said to be loosely based on his relationship with his ex-wife and former girlfriend, Sushmita.

The director, who has made horror movies like "Raaz" and 1920", is currently gearing up for the release of "Shaapit". Starring singer Udit Narayan's son Aditya, Shweta Aggarwal and Rahul Dev, the film hit screens Friday.
