Whether it is due to their career or personal choices they seem to be waiting for the perfect one.
When it comes to the leading men of Bollywood, there really is no shortage of eye candy. While many of Bollywood’s favorite heartthrobs are taken and are in committed relationships, there are some stars who are not tied down and have no plans of doing so.
1. Siddharth Malhotra
Sidharth Malhotra began a career as a model (and rightly so!) at the age of 18. Unhappy by the profession, he went on to work as an assistant director to Karan Johar in the 2010 film My Name Is Khan. He launched his Bollywood career and made his acting debut with a leading role in Johar’s teen drama Student of the Year (2012), for which he received a Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut nomination. His guy-next-door look is a hit among fans, mainly the girls! He wooed all audiences as soon as he appeared on the big screen.us the first time we saw him on big screens. He made his debut with Karan Johar’s ‘Student of the Year’, since then there is no looking back for this actor. He was once said to have been dating Alia Bhatt but those rumors have been rubbished as Alia is now in a relationship with Ranbir. So lucky for the girls – he is still an eligible bachelor!
2. Kartik Aaryan
Kartik Aaryan was born and raised in Gwalior and he relocated to Navi Mumbai to pursue an engineering degree in biotechnology. He concurrently experimented with modelling and attempted to start a career in film. After struggling for three years, Aaryan made his acting debut in 2011 with Pyaar Ka Punchnama, a buddy film about the romantic trials faced by three young men. The movie was directed by Luv Ranjan and co-starred Nushrat Bharucha. Aaryan went on to play the romantic interest of the lead female characters in Akaash Vani (2013) and Kaanchi: The Unbreakable (2014), but these films failed to propel his career forward. He consequently collaborated with Ranjan and Bharucha in two more buddy films, Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2 (2015) and Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety (2018), both of which were a huge hit at the box office but received severe criticism for their misogynistic themes. The latter proved to be a breakthrough for Aaryan, and he followed it by starring in the romantic comedy Luka Chuppi (2019). There have been several rumors about Kartik dating Bollywood’s upcoming ladies but he recently quashed all such claims in an interview and said: “Yaar, time kahan hai? I am single and work is primary at the moment. When I am in a relationship, people will know.”
3. Ishaan Khatter
Ishaan Khatter is the son of actors Rajesh Khattar and Neelima Azeem. He successfully made his first screen appearance as a child in the 2005 film Vaah! Life Ho Toh Aisi!, which starred his half-brother Shahid Kapoor. As an adult, he starred in Majid Majidi’s drama Beyond the Clouds (2017), in which he played a drug dealer, and in the romantic drama Dhadak (2018), which was a huge commercial success and put Ishaan on the map in Bollywood. The former earned him the Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut. There have been several rumors about Ishaan and costar, Jhanvi Kapoor dating which she recently denied by saying: “Ishaan and I are actually childhood friends. I mean we’ve known each other for a really long time.” He is still single ladies! WOOHOO!
Vicky Kaushal initially pursued an engineering degree from the Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Technology. Aspiring to take up a career in film, Kaushal assisted Anurag Kashyap in the crime drama Gangs of Wasseypur (2012) and went on to play the role of minor characters in two of Kashyap’s productions. His first leading role was in the independent drama Masaan (2015), which earned him the IIFA and Screen Awards for Best Male Debut, following which he starred as an unhinged cop in Kashyap’s psychological thriller Raman Raghav 2.0 (2016). Kaushal rose to prominence in 2018 with supporting roles in Raazi and Sanju, two of the highest-grossing Hindi films of the year. For the latter, he won the Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actor. His 2018 projects also included starring roles in the Netflix films Love per Square Foot and Lust Stories. In 2019, he played the lead role of a military officer in the commercially successful action film Uri: The Surgical Strike. In a recent interview when Vicky was asked about his current relationship status, the actor reiterated a few times that he is single and ‘akela’ (alone). But when inquired if he was ready to mingle, Vicky added, “…ready to mingle on stage with the audience.”
