New Delhi: Rahul Gandhi’s marriage plans have been a perennial topic of speculation but he says he would tie the knot only when he finds the “right girl“.

“This is a question that comes all the time, all the time. Right now I am engaged in fighting the elections. Unfortunately I have not been focused on private life,” he replied when asked during an interview with PTI as to when he intended to get married.

“Is it two years from now, one year from now?” he was asked.

“When I find the right girl,” said the 43-year-old Gandhi scion.

Question: That means you have not found the right girl?

Rahul: When I find the right girl, I will get married.

The Congress Vice President, a pet lover, was asked about his other hobbies.

He replied to say that he read quite a bit, “too much non-fiction” and “too much about things related to my work” — history, geography, political affairs...a lot about the middle east, Afghanistan, Pakistan and China.

Gandhi said he did not watch as many Hindi movies as his sister Priyanka does. But he came away disappointed often with the mainstream movies of Hollywood.

He has no favourite actors or actresses. “I appreciate a good performance.”
