With his latest release, Main Aur Charles getting raving reviews from every critic you can think of, we decided to revisit our interview with the fine actor last month.
This is Randeep Hooda IRL.
Cosmo: Tell us about your first date.
Randeep: I was in the eleventh grade. There was this amazing girl in class; she wasn't the girl I was seeing though [laughs]. We took a walk till the water tank, and she had a cold. I had never kissed anyone before but she had, so I told her I knew what I was doing and kissed her. The truth is, I really didn't.
Cosmo: So what kind of women are you attracted to?
Randeep: Curvy women! I've always liked more curves. No matter how pretty a woman is, if she's skinny, it just doesn't excite me.
Cosmo: We heard you fall in love with all your heroines. Is that true?
Randeep: You have to. How else will you be able to do what you do? I do fall in love with all my heroines but I don't necessarily tell them that. Nor do I act on those feelings. It's just something that happens.
Cosmo: You're quite a rebel. What's the most rebellious thing you've done?
Randeep: When I moved to Australia, I didn't speak to my parents and I didn't come back home for almost six years.
Cosmo: Do you have a favourite role you've played?
Randeep: I love all the roles I've done, but the role of Charles is special. It was intimidating because there's nothing real about it. The character is always playing games, so I couldn't find the reality in it. That was very tough.
And that's not all he said. Grab a copy of our October issue to get a load of the full interview.
