Mallika Sherawat


She redefined sexuality in Indian cinema through her bold characters. Her daring onscreen attitude in films like Khwahish and Murder trickled down off-screen as well. When Mallika entered the industry rumour mills churned out reports that she is already married and has taken a divorce, though the actress never accepted these claims. Currently, this 37 year old actress is searching for the love of her life through a reality TV show, Bachelorette’s Indian version. Well, whether she finds her prince charming or not, we are sure her ‘devil may care’ attitude will always triumph.

Priyanka Chopra


This former Miss World, is also an actress and a singer. She has been previously been linked to few of her co-stars, but has always denied being in any kind of relationship. She is 31 and single, and has her family’s complete support and backing in whatever she decides. As Priyanka says, “Thankfully, I don’t have any pressure to get married from my family.”
 

Nargis Fakhri


Aged 34, an ex-American actress and model, whose claim to fame is the Ranbir Kapoor starrer Rockstar, was also one of the top searched celebrities on Internet in 2012. Currently eroding many top actresses in brand endorsements, she has many films lined in her kitty. Nargis is rumoured to be dating Uday Chopra currently, though the two maintain a stoic silence on it. When it comes to marriage this is what she says, “I want to be an independent woman. I will make my own career and money, so it’s okay if I don’t get married at all.”

Sushmita Sen


She won the title of Miss Universe in 1994, and created history by being the first Indian woman to do so. Her career in Bollywood took off to a slow start, but once it gathered momentum she ruled at the industry with her looks and talent. Sushmita became a proud single mom after adopting two girls- Reena and Alisha. After a lot of names were linked with her by rumour mills (Randeep Hooda and Wasim Akram), Sushmita, now 37, in an interview said, "Right now my entire focus is on spending quality time with them. There is no plan in my life now to get married."

Bipasha Basu


After breaking up with her long-term boyfriend John Abraham, she apparently became self-reclusive. But now she is back in the game. Owner of never ending legs, a perfectly toned physique; she is currently reported to be dating actor Harman Baweja. How much truth that holds only the two know? In an interview earlier this year, Bipasha was quoted saying, "Let me first find my soul mate. Hopefully, I find him soon, I am not looking though, let him find me."
 

Preity Zinta


Owner of the Kings XI Punjab, a production house and is currently eyeing a director’s chair; bubbly Preity is a living proof that she doesn't need a man to be happy and successful. Known for her dimpled smile and stellar performances in movies like Kal Ho Na Ho and Veer-Zaara; Preity believes in living life at her own terms. After coming out of a long-term relationship with industrialist Ness Wadia, she is currently single. Preity, 38, has been quoted saying, “I am lucky. I have no time for love. I would like to get married someday. When that day comes, I will inform everyone.”

Rani Mukerji


Rani Mukerji shot to fame with Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, got critic attention with Black and found key to young hearts with Hum Tum. She has always maintained her dignity and silence on her relationship with Aditya Chopra. Currently 35 and single, she seems more focused on career rather than marriage. Earlier this year, Rani said in an interview, “I’ve heard that we come on earth in pairs, get separated only to meet once again through marriage. So whoever is there on this earth for me, will eventually get paired with me. Till then, I’ll enjoy my singlehood.”

Urmila Matondkar


Made her debut as a child actress in the 1980 film Masoom; she has established quite a name for herself with some good films to her credit. The sex symbol of the 90s is currently 39 and single, and has taken a self-imposed exile from Bollywood. A few years back this is what Urmila had to say about settleing down in life, “Why can’t I just be a sexy eligible single woman? Forget marriage, I’ve never felt the need to be in a relationship just for the sake of having a man in my life.” Have things changed now? No one really knows!

Tabu


Tabu is well-known for her dusky looks and her off-beat films. Currently 41, this single diva seems to be taken an off-beat path in her real life as well. Though she has been linked to various co-stars time and again, but she still doesn’t seem to be heading down the aisle anytime soon. When asked about marriage plans, this is what Tabu has to say, “Yeh [topic of marriage] abhi puraana ho gaya. Jo nahi hai uske baare mein baat karne ka kya faayda." (This topic is old now. What is the point to talk about things that are not there.)
