Fake-Pretend-Boyfriend Vote - 2006 Election!
It has come to my attention that I've got nobody to love.
I mean, what I lack is a fake pretend boyfriend. t-hype has my first choice, Hrithik, and Beth pines for Akshaye Khanna, so I've been eyeing that new crop of Bollyboys to see if there are any ripe for my pickin', if you get my horribly-rural-yet-mildly-vulgar metaphorical drift.
It's also obvious to me that I can't just pick a guy, it has to be someone special that I devote my heart to.
That's why I'm putting this up to a vote.
I'm providing the nominees, though, because I do have some stipulations. The guys all have to be within my age range (which, unfortunately, knocks out superstars like Amitabh Bachchan and even Shahrukh Khan), they should be unmarried (at least to my limited knowledge), and they should be nice to look at (Johnny Lever need not apply). Whoever wins my affection in a straightforward and democratic manner will have reviews of as many of his movies that I can get my hands on. Legally. For rich or for poor, fellas - for bad and for worse. In addition to that, I will give Prince charming a special spot in a new layout I'm planning.
So here's my short list. I'd prefer you leave your vote in a comment (no need to be shy here!) but if you prefer you can email your vote confidentially. (Also, if you know that some of my info is incorrect, or that someone needs to be disqualified, do let me know.)
Born December 17, 1972
What John Abraham and TB have in common: Catholicism, vegetarianism
Pros: LOOK AT HIM.
Cons: Seems to have a problem finding clothes that fit, since he is rarely pictured wearing a shirt. WAIT. Why isn't that listed under pros? Also, the long hair must go.
Film Examples: Jism (2003), Dhoom (2004), Kaal (2005), Garam Masala (2005)
Born December 9, 1975
What Dino Morea and TB have in common: Well, he's half Italian, so we probably both like pasta.
Pros: His lips. HIS LIPS.
Cons: There's a serious dearth of Dino Morea films. Also, he's so good-looking that sometimes it's freakish. Besides that, in the provided picture he seems to have pretty questionable fashion sense.
Film Examples: Kandukondain Kandukondain (2000), Raaz (2002), Tom, Dick, and Harry (2006)
Born September 3, 1976
What Vivek Oberoi and TB have in common: Both have attended or are attending college in New York and go by the nickname "Rockstar"
Pros: He's got a cute tush. I mean, he's cute.
Cons: Receding hairline.

Born June 25, 1978
What Aftab Shivdasani and TB have in common: June birthdays
Pros: He's a pretty decent actor, and he's pretty decent to look at.
Cons: May eventually go the Bonny Bonaduce child-star route. And my twin sister has dibs.
Film Examples: Mr. India (1987), Love Ke Liye Kuchh Bhi Karega (2001), Hungama (2003)
Born February 25, 1981
What Shahid Kapoor and TB have in common: Both are eighties babies, and TB tutors a kid named Shahid!
Pros: An awesome dancer with a cute baby face!
Cons: Is dating Kareena Kapoor. I'm not sure whether the con is "dating" or "Kareena Kapoor."
Film Examples: Ishq Vishk (2003), Vaah! Life Ho Toh Aisi (2005), Chup Chup Ke (2006)
Born December 17, 1978?
What Ritesh Deshmukh and TB have in common: Rumor has it we'll both be appearing in the upcoming Kabhi Alvidaa Na Kehan, although not in the same scenes ever.
Pros: He's a good comedic actor.
Cons: He got the short end of the stick in the "hot" department, but he gets by on his dorky cuteness.
Film Examples: Masti (2004), Mr. Ya Miss (2005), Bluffmaster (2005)
This vote will be open indefinitely (I know it will take me a while to tally the floods of votes I'm anticipating. You know, it's hard for me to count all the way to four). I'll announce the results as soon as I feel I have some.
And finally... may the best man win!
