A whole generation of women, 14 to 60, would agree that Ranbir Kapoor is cute!
But the twist in the poor guys tale, is the mind-numbing absurdity of imagining that two of Bollywood’s most successful actresses should be pining over him. It is simply too far-fetched!
Media is rife with rumours of about how DP and KK can’t stand each other. Predictable. But too predictable to be true!
So what do these girls need?
Financially — lets put Deepika and Katrina’s earnings at a conservative 20 crores till date. Invested at a conservative 4%, that’s an annual interest of 80 lacs, or 7 lacs a month of income. So, financial security is sorted.
Then comes emotional balance — family and friends can give you that.
Ideally, they should have a sense of purpose – these are fresh choices for which they don’t have to commit existing funds. All other personal needs can be shared with a committed partner.
A visual analysis of the girls
Deepika looks “driven, but living in the moment and vulnerable.”
Katrina looks “workhorse, but reserved and careful”.
These two superstars have the chutzpah to seduce a nation of a billion people, definitely they either know, or will learn how to “be”, “let go” and “move on”. Then what is this imaginary pining and jealousy over one guy? Lack of perspective?
Probably an invention of a patriarchal society, where the man is the prize. Not really anymore. Google “Bill Gates daughter” and you would know what a prize looks like! Jennifer Bill Gates looks every bit like a prize worth chasing — Ranbir is a distant nth on the chasing list.
Men and women today, may be ready for a relationship, but may not be ready to settle down. This is now accepted well.
Hence, as a nation, we should let Deepika and Katrina enjoy their youth, and let Ranbir enjoy his.
Ten years from now, none of them may be connected to each other in any way-and yet be perfectly happy. And no fingers need to be pointed at any of them.
The man does not deserve our sympathy, neither do the girls deserve our pity. They are fully aware of the choices they’re making. And they are all inspirations in their own right.
