Neil wants love!


By Hindustan Times

NEW DELHI, Sept. 18 -- Female fans of Neil Nitin Mukesh hold your breath, as the 29-year old actor has revealed he is bored of his single status, and is now looking for 'the one'. "I'm single yaar. There's no doubt about it and anyone reading this, please consider. I wish I could give out my mobile number," says Neil, who was recently in Delhi.

"It gets boring sometimes, you know, without having someone special in your life," he adds. The actor broke up with his designer girlfriend of two years, Priyanka Bhatia in 2010. Ask him if he is looking for any particular trait in the desired girl, and he says, "I'm just looking for a simple girl who really loves me for the person I am, because at heart I'm still a baby ... somebody smart and stylish and somebody who understands how much I love her and my parents and family."

Ask him if this quest is the reason for all the flirtatious exchanges with actor Deepika Padukone on a social networking website, and Neil says, "Deepika will always remain a very dear friend of mine and that's about it." On his rumoured relationship with actor Asin, he says, "Asin is a very special girl and she'll always remain that way!"
