New Delhi: All he wanted his entire life was a Hummer and with the car parked safely in his garage, the one thing missing in singer Mika Singh`s life is a wife and the self-styled playboy is desperately looking for a "missus".

The Punjabi singer who is enjoying a career high with back to back hits including `Ibn-e-Batoota` and `Apni To Jaise Taise` wants to get married this very year and is going to great lengths to find the right girl, including ardaas (prayers) in Gurudwaras and match making websites.

"I have achieved more than I ever thought I will have. I always wanted a Hummer and now I have that too, so I thought it`s time I slowed down and get settled. I plan to get married this year and when I find the right girl, it will be `chat mangni pat byah`," the singer told PTI.

The 33-year-old who shot to instant infamy after the much hyped kissing incident involving reality TV star Rakhi Sawant says that his partying days are long over.

"People often say I have this or that image, but it`s not a constructed thing, it`s who I am but it will not affect my life as a husband. I want a partner who accepts me as I am and I know I will be a good faithful husband," said the

Mika claims that he has NRI parents queuing outside his doors with proposals of marriage, but he wants to marry a `Desi` girl.

"I started receiving proposals when I was 21 and I have received thousands of proposals from NRI families over the years but I would prefer an Indian girl," said the singer.

Mika who claims to have turned down the offer to star in a matchmaking reality TV show which later went to Rahul Mahajan, said that he is a true believer in the institution of marriage.
