Irrfan: I don’t like people who pretend to be someone they are not
Irrfan next will be seen in film 'Qarib Qarib Singlle', which lets you in on his romantic side.
In keeping with the theme of the film, BT gave a diehard Irrfan fan — 21-year-old Sheena Oberoi — a golden opportunity to go on a coffee date with her favourite actor. The conversation revolved around love and relationships.
When asked what qualities in a woman attracts and puts him off, Irrfan revealed, "I like a good sense of humour and honesty.
He continued, What I don't like is someone unnecessarily intellectualising things. I also don't like people who put on a mask and pretend to be someone they are not.
On this, he said, I remember checking out a dating app when I was abroad. I soon figured that most of the girls follow certain guidelines.
The way they pose for pictures (the typical pout and smile), what kind of picture needs to be uploaded and things like that... I noticed that 90% of women followed this pattern, and that's not natural. Falseness puts me off. Be yourself. Also, sometimes they are judgemental and they want to know what lies ahead before getting into something. It's like wanting to find their destination before they could start their journey. Why plan so much? I love people who are comfortable with uncertainties."
