Ram Kapoor – “If I got a chance to romance a female me, I would turn gay.”

After romancing Prachi Desai in ‘Kasamh Se’ and Saakshi Tanwar in ‘Bade Achhe Lagte Hain,’ Ram Kapoor adds spice to his repertoire by romancing himself in a girl’s form in Humshakals!
“If I got a chance to romance a female me, I would rather turn gay.”
The ever-confident Ram Kapoor asserts that he was very chilled-out about playing a woman onscreen in Humshakals. “The nervousness and fear was not there,” he says, but admits, “What I did not expect was that it would be so difficult. I have found new respect for women after becoming a woman. We don’t realise how difficult it is to groom yourself and look pretty. I had to do it for only four days but I died in those days; I don’t understand how women do the lip make-up, nail paints,eyelashes … salaam to all women for doing this.”
But the actor enjoyed romancing himself in a woman’s garb. He smiles, “I think I am the world’s only actor in Hollywood and Bollywood who has got a chance to romance himself. I think I am very lucky and I am proud of the result.”

Asked what he, as a man, found appealing about his female version, the actor quips, “If I got a chance to romance a female me, I would rather turn gay.”

Time was when Ram had a great body and given a chance Ram says he would love to lose weight again. “But the problem,” he sighs,“is that it’s not easy especially for a person who loves to eat. Weight loss requires time and discipline and I am not sitting at home; more work is coming my way and for each project I am getting they are telling me to maintain my weight. Sajid would have slapped me had I lost weight during Humshakals. If I get a six-month break in the future, and if I want a different look, I will reduce.”
He adds, “I am happy with myself and my career but I want to be healthier because now I am 40 years old and I have kids so it’s good to be healthy. Not many people know that at the beginning of the year, I quit smoking and drinking. I smoked two packets a day for 20 years of my life, but now I eat well and exercise too, I have started playing tennis again. My weight is the same but I am feeling healthier.”
