Recently film maker Vikram Bhatt declared that he is not really looking for love any more. Though he does assure that he is not bitter about the feeling of love, especially after a couple of break ups which made headlines over the years gone by, the director of horror films like SHAAPIT, 1920 and RAAZ is sure that he doesn't need the constant presence of a woman to complete his life.
"I have realized that no one but you can complete yourself", says Vikram with a feeble smile. Adding in his own characteristic manner, he says, "It is actually nonsense to seek someone to be complete in life. Aise kyo hona chahiye? You can be single and still so complete. I am not at all unhappy in my current state and in fact raring to go as far as my personal and professional life is concerned."
A couple of years back when Vikram Bhatt had broken up with Ameesha Patel, he had refused to divulge into any details around what had actually transpired. Keeping his gentleman stand, he had continued to maintain cordial relationship with his ex-girlfriend, unlike some of the recent break ups that have seemingly taken an ugly route. In fact soon after his break, he was also in for a surprise when Ameesha had thrown a birthday party for him along with other friends.
He had denied getting into any gory details by counter asking a plain and simple question - "What's the point of going into the past and talking about why and when it happened?"
Today, he is single but neither has he closed himself from the outside world nor is he turning out to be a recluse. In fact he is cheerful and warm as ever and does strike a conversation with people around him in the same manner as it was in the past. Still, when it comes to the place for a woman in his life, he isn't standing close to a door and waiting for someone to pass by. "I am happy to be living life the way it is currently and don't intend to mould it any differently", says Vikram.
"However, I am not bitter at all. Why should I be? But now the love which comes to me has to be really special", he adds while looking forward to a new phase in his personal as well as professional life.
One wonders though if this the mark of a man who has matured with a passage of time after loving three women in his life for a major duration - his wife, Sushmita Sen and Ameesha Patel? It appears that he has just grown over love and is taking it rather easy with no strings attached.
"See, the matter of the fact is that I don't see myself reaching home in the night, feeling lonely and then getting the feeling that 'arrey yaar, its bad to be alone; I should rather hook up with someone'. Aisa nahi ho sakta. Yes, I will give love a chance but then it has to be indeed 'love'. Let that happen naturally", signs off Vikram.
