Udaipur: Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, 62, is the most eligible bachelor in the country, according to Bollywood actress Mallika Sherawat, who will soon be on the lookout for a `soulmate` via TV show `The Bachelorette India - Mere Khayalon Ki Mallika`.

She has special reasons for her unique answer to the question - "Who is the country`s most eligible bachelor?"

"I think it`s Narendra Modi. He is smart, progressive and often misunderstood like me," the 36-year-old said here during the launch of the promotional trailer of her forthcoming TV show `The Bachelorette India - Mere Khayalon ki Mallika` here Friday night.

The dating reality show, a take-off from the internationally popular format of `The Bachelor`, focusses on finding a match for the actress from among 30 contestants.

Actor Rohit Roy, who will host the show, was present at the show`s launch at the Fateh Garh Fort here. He introduced 15 of the 30 contestants with a unique song for each one of them.

The show will be aired starting Oct 7.
