Rahul Gandhi’s marriage plans have been a perennial topic of speculation, but he says he will tie the knot only when he finds the “right girl.”
“This is a question that comes up all the time. Right now, I am engaged in fighting the [Lok Sabha] elections. Unfortunately, I have not been focused on private life,” he said in an interview to PTI.
“Is it two years from now, one year from now?” he was asked.
“When I find the right girl,” replied the 43-year-old Congress vice-president.
“That means you have not found the right girl?”
“When I find the right girl, I will get married.”
Asked about his other hobbies, Mr. Gandhi, a pet lover, said he read quite a bit, “too much non-fiction” and “too much about things related to my work” — history, geography, political affairs and a lot about the Middle East, Afghanistan, Pakistan and China.
He did not watch as many Hindi movies as his sister Priyanka did. But he often came away disappointed with the mainstream movies of Hollywood. He had no favourite actors or actresses. “I appreciate a good performance.”
