However, that does not imply that the actress shall be reckless about it. “When it comes to your partner, you have to choose the right person, knowing you can live with them for the rest of your life, learn from each other and grow in every way… spiritually, intellectually etc,” she points out, adding that she’ll never make a hasty decision when it comes to her life partner. “I’m not somebody who will decide in haste and let loneliness determine the flawed partner for me,” she asserts.
So what does she search for in her Mr Right? “I look for kindness, honestly, integrity, intelligence, humour and good values and ofcourse, a fun, loving guy! And yes, I believe he exists!” chuckles Shamita.
Interestingly, the actress had marked her debut in Bollywood with ‘Mohabbatein’, an iconic romantic film which hit the screens in 2000. Speaking about her definition of love, Shamita shares, “For me love is oxygen, I can’t imagine life without it. And yes, I’m a diehard romantic! And I don’t like playing mind games, when it comes to love. For me, it’s the purest emotion and I enjoy the simplicity of it. I don’t think the definition of love has changed, it’s just our portrayal of it. We’ve gotten a lot bolder, I guess, in our expression of love on screen through our stories and characters.”
