MUMBAI: Bollywood actor Aftab Shivdasani, who has been unlucky in love, is set to marry Britain-born Indian model Nin Dusanj next year.
Apparently Aftab’s wedding is being planned in early 2013. The actor admits he’s found love just when he needed it the most.
“Yes, we will get married. Nin was Hong Kong based. She has now relocated to India. She is a Punjabi girl, born and raised in London. But she’s been working in Hong Kong for the past six years,” said Aftab.
The 34-year-old had stopped signing films in 2010, took a year off to work on his physique and his performing abilities as an actor. He then came back to his friend and director Vikram Bhatt who signed him for “1920: Evil Returns” that has just hit the screens.
The actor admits it’s been a tough phase in his life.
“I stopped signing films. There was no point in doing films I wasn’t happy with. I only signed Vikram Bhatt’s ‘1920: Evil Returns’ and Indra Kumar’s ‘Grand Masti’, sequel to ‘Masti’,” he said.
“Masti” sequel is raunchier, more suggestive and risque than the first film, says the actor.
“It has to be! There have been so many spinoffs since ‘Masti’ was released in 2004. I can’t say I’m comfortable with all the double-meanings and suggestive dialogues, but it is what the audience wants. Being an actor it’s my job to do and say things I wouldn’t in real life,” said Aftab.
Bhatt recently spoke to Aftab’s new lady-love and was bowled over by her devotion to the actor.
“If Aftab has been unlucky in his career, he has been even unluckier in love,” said Bhatt and added: “Yes,I did speak to Aftab’s girlfriend. I can tell you this much, it’s a very rare kind of love that they share. Aftab has been singularly unfortunate in love. He has been used and discarded by women.”
“The thing about Nin is, she is not concerned with what he does, or what his stardom quotient is… When I spoke to her, I could feel this unconditional love that she has for Aftab. I think my friend has found his true love,” he added.
Bhatt said that emotionally and professionally, Aftab had hit a low, but he has “born-again as an actor and as a human being. His life has come together. He’s finally found the perfect partner and is hopefully en route to a second lease in his career…I’m happy.”
