I don’t know what makes me desirable, but I think that you find someone desirable when you like the person’s personality as a whole. Most importantly, it is about liking the person for who they are. Recently, I was reading a fan letter; I usually try and make time to read all my fan mails and respond to them. I was reading one letter, which said, ‘I love you not because you are a celebrity, but because you are a good human being, and we can see that’. For, me that is the most important thing, the fact that there are people who understand my personality. I believe that I am transparent, and it is great if people can see it. If people believe my personality is desirable, there is nothing like it!”
