I Confess...

Tolly’s two most eligible bachelors — Dev and Parambrata Chattopadhyay — and two married men — Abir Chatterjee and Saswata Chatterjee — unveil the woman of their dreams!

PARAMBRATA CHATTOPADHYAY

I confess I am in love with….

Deepika Padukone

(At the moment, of course!)

I love her because:

I think she is very contemporary, very now and she is extremely beautiful. She seems very real to me, somebody who doesn’t fake, whether in films or in real life. I generally like her in all films, but I think Cocktail was a standout!

I would want her to be in my life as:

Well, obviously, what else? I am in love with her! (Laughs) To begin with, I would love to get acquainted with her and then I would love to have her as my girlfriend!

ABIR CHATTERJEE

I confess I am in love with….

Parineeti Chopra

I love her because:

Of everything! See, I am not the type who would like a heroine only because she is pretty. Parineeti isn’t great-looking if we compare her to a Katrina Kaif or a Deepika Padukone, but I don’t like to fantasise about heroines who are just sex symbols. I am past that age! Even as a child, I’ve been a huge fan Madhuri Dixit because she was, and still is, a combination of beauty and brains. After a long time, there’s a heroine with raw talent. Parineeti is sexy too but her sex appeal is subdued, it’s not in-your-face. That is what really attracts me. So far she’s acted in only two films — Ladies vs Ricky Bahl and Ishaqzaade — and the transformation from a tomboy to a vulnerable girl in love... she is a great performer! O lomba race-er ghora!

I would want her to be in my life as:

A heroine, of course! What else did you think? A lot of Hindi films are being shot in Calcutta and a lot of Calcutta actors are being cast in them. I hope Parineeti too comes to Calcutta to shoot and I get the opportunity to team up with her. I promise I will do my best!

DEV

I confess I am in love with….

Vidya Balan

I love her because:

Vidya always becomes the character she plays. She is one of the most powerful actresses of our time, someone who doesn’t have to talk much because her expressions are so powerful. I loved her in Kahaani and The Dirty Picture. Vidya is special!

I would want her to be in my life as:

I want to see her on TV only! I don’t want her as my girlfriend or wife. I would want my girlfriend or wife to be a simple, normal girl. I have had enough. I don’t want to marry an actress anymore!

SASWATA CHATTERJEE

I confess I am in love with….

Rekha

I love her because:

Of her acting, obviously! But I think she is the only woman I have dreamt of in my sleep and often planted a kiss on her cheek. Believe me, she is the only one I have kissed while sleeping!

I would want her to be in my life as:

Now!? Ma bole koley uthe porbo (I will call her ‘Ma’ and jump onto her lap)! (Laughs) I would have obviously loved to have her as my girlfriend but that’s when I was younger.... Now, well, I’m still a great fan of Rekha!
