Whether you’re Kiara Advani, a successful Bollywood actress who was just a part of a movie that had the biggest box office opening of the year, or a 28-year-old homebody whose entire existence boils down to a pair of comfortable sweat pants and a prayer, the only thing people really want to know about you is when you plan to get married and ‘settle down’ because an unmarried 30-year-old is an anomaly that could tear a hole in the fabric of space and time.
So it came as no surprise when Advani was onstage at the trailer launch for her upcoming movie Jug Jug Jeeyo, along with co-stars Varun Dhawan, Neetu Kapoor, and Anil Kapoor, and was asked the inevitable “when do you plan to get married and settle down?”.
Amidst the sniggers and hoots of the people around her, she is rumoured to be dating former co-star Sidharth Malhotra, the actress shut the question down with the perfect response. She said, “Bina shaadi kiye bhi main well-settled ho sakti hoon,right? Main well-settled hoon, main kaam kar rahi hoon, kama rahi hoon, khush hoon (I can be well-settled without getting married, too. I am well-settled, working, earning and I am happy).”
You can record this and play it on loop for all the intrusive aunties and uncles at the next family reunion. Thanks, Kiara!
