Actress Alia Bhatt says her life partner need not be a "youth icon" or a "heartthrob" but he must be a nice man with a good heart.
"When life partner happens, I hope he is not a youth icon because I doubt if I would be youthful then. Whether life partner is hot or not, he has to be a nice man. He should be funny, responsible, he should be sweet and he should love me a lot," said Alia.
The 23-year-old actress has received rave reviews this year for her performances in 'Kapoor & Sons' and 'Udta Punjab'.
On being asked if she is expecting any award, Alia said, "That we will see, 'saal abhi baaki hai mere dost' (the year is not over yet, my friend).”
"I just want the awards and rewards from the audience. I want them to come and watch the film (Dear Zindagi), love it, relate to it and feel all the emotions that I went through while making the film," the actress added.
She was speaking at the Absolut Elyx Filmfare Glamour and Style cover launch, on Monday. 'Dear Zindagi', also starring superstar Shah Rukh Khan, Kunal Kapoor, Ali Zafar and Angad Bedi, is set to hit theatres on November 25.
