Ruslaan Mumtaz the male lead of Sony Entertainment Television's younger man - older woman affair show Kehta Hai Dil... Jee Le Zara would not want to get into a relationship with a lady elder to him in his personal life. "I don't think any older woman will fall for me. Even girls of my age find me immature and I would have to really work very hard to convince them, (as my character does in the show) something that I don't want to do in real life."
This single guy who first began his acting career with films (MP3 - Mera Pehla Pehla Pyaar) then goes on to list the top three attributes which make a relationship tick according to him. "Firstly I think there needs to be mutual respect, the ability to make the other laugh, and last but not the least a good physical chemistry."
Though it is said that the first impression is the last impression, he still feels that for a lasting relationship, looks would still be at number three.
When asked about his on/off- screen chemistry with Jee Le Zara co-star Sangeeta Ghosh, Ruslaan says, "I am in awe of her as my character is. She has achieved so much in life, yet is full of energy and excitement. I need to kill my lazy part of me to match up to her."
Ruslaan does not feel that it is no more necessary for him to flirt with his co-star to get the required chemistry on screen. "I have grown as an actor over the years and can now get any chemistry without getting to really know my co-star. I will never flirt with Sangeeta."
