If you’re a gossip addict (like me), it will have been hard to avoid the waitress scandal surrounding Indian golfing ace, Tiger Woods. Perhaps it’s best we just gloss over that… Moving swiftly on, and in the name of helping Indian men in the public eye to retain their reputation as faithful partners and husband, The India Times ran an interesting article on some of the country’s finest examples of “true gentlemen.” So ladies (and gentlemen), here is a quick pick of five of India’s most chivalrous stars:
Brains and Beauty in a Nutshell: Shah Rukh Khan
Actor Shah Rukh Khan isn’t just easy on the eye. He’s also one smart cookie. Owner of his own production house and IPL whiz kid, Shah Rukh is also famous for being the perfect family man. Married to wife Guari and also a loving father, looks like this on screen and off screen hero can do no wrong. It would seem his chemistry with a string of gorgeous actresses, including Kajol and Juhi Chawla, it would seem that it’s all for the camera!
Hitting the Home Run: Sachin Tendulkar
Cricketer Sachin Tendulkar may break records but he doesn’t break hearts, or at least not his wife’s! Perceived to be a number one family man, the only rumour and speculation that wafts around about Sachin is whether or not he’s going to retire to spend more time with those he loves the most.
The Happily Married Minister: Omar Abdullah
Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir, Omar Abdullah is happily married to Payal Singh and a father of two sons, Zahir and Zamir. This handsome politician is no stranger to controversy but he handles it all with grace and dignity and at the end of the day, most folks, including plenty of Indian ladies, look up to and not down on him.
Elbow-Deep in Love: Arjun Rampal
You’ve heard of wearing your heart on your sleeve, but tattooing it on your forearms? Actor Arjun Rampal is happily married to Mehr Jessia and has the names of his two lovely daughters Mahikaa and Myra set in ink on his arms. “It’s my way of having them with me every second of the day,” says Arjun Rampal in the India Times article.
Family Business: Kumar Mangalam Birla
Businessman Kumar Mangalam Birla has been named one of India’s top three Indian entrepreneurs, and has always had that “je ne sais quoi”. Successful in his career, and an excellent family man, Kumar means business in every sense of the word!
