Rajat Barmecha’s strength and vulnerability as the boarding school outcast who stands up to his tyrant father in Udaan garnered him awe and ‘awws’ in equal measure, but he’s still a regular ‘mama’s boy’ who’s yet to go on a blind date.
My most memorable V-day... They’ve all been great. I’m not one of those people who think it’s just about romantic love. I go out with my friends and we have a good time.
When I’m in love... I write poems. I wrote a poem for this girl I liked, about me and her and how we met. She loved it.
Love is... The small stuff, a stolen kiss, cooking at home together. I’m not about over-the-top gestures. I’ll be very honest, I don’t even chase girls. But if I like a girl, I’ll tell her I do.
On being popular with the ladies... Since I moved here and started working, girls tell me I’m cute. Five years ago when I was studying in Delhi, I had a few female friends but I wasn’t exactly Hrithik.
