Mumbai: Sidharth Malhotra`s idea of real life romance would be an intimate setting on a beach with an "interesting partner".
The model-actor, who made his Bollywood debut with `Student Of The Year` and romanced Alia Bhatt, will now be seen in romantic comedy `Hasee Toh Phasee` with Parineeti Chopra.
Asked about his idea of real life romance, he said: "My romantic evening will be intimate - probably two people and not in a very crowded place. I would like to go to a secluded place somewhere, hopefully on a beach."
Sidharth spoke on the sidelines of the unveiling of the signature `Hasee Toh Phasee` love seat here Thursday.
He says he has a special connect with the sea.
"I like sea. My father was in the merchant navy, so I have travelled a lot on the sea. So, hopefully my romantic evening will be on a beach with an interesting partner," he added.
In `Hasee Toh Phasee`, Sidharth plays the role of Nikhil, and he finds a personal connect with the character.
"He (character of Nikhil in the film) is very ambitious. He wants to do well. He is a bit confused in terms of doing what his family wants and what he wants. I think it is very true to all the youths today.
"Sometimes they get pressurised (by things like) `My mom wants me to do this, my father wants me to do this`. And this boy (Nikhil) is equally confused in that sense.
"He sticks by his commitments if he has made to his girlfriend or his lover, and that is very interesting as well. So, this character is pretty much close to me when I was in college," he added.
Produced by Karan Johar`s Dharma Productions and directed by Vinil Mathew, `Hasee Toh Phasee` is slated to release Feb 7, 2014.
