The commitment-phobes of B-Town

In her latest film Break Ke Baad, Deepika Padukone plays a girl who isn't looking for anything serious. Even her co-star Imran Khan played what was apparently an anti-romantic in I Hate Luv Storys earlier this year.

Yet there's no need to look on-screen to see commitment-shy actors and actresses. Here's a list of ten people who are, or have been, significantly single:

Ranbir Kapoor

Most recently outed by exes Deepika Padukone and Sonam Kapoor on Koffee With Karan, Ranbir apparently has quite the appetite for variety.

And, going by the gossip, he doesn't let his being in a relationship get in the way of having a good time.

He might have the prettiest looking girlfriends in Bollywood, but neither that string of beauties -- from Somy Ali to Aishwarya Rai to Katrina Kaif -- nor his age could yet persuade confirmed bachelor Salman Khan to tie the knot.

Sush broke off with her Delhi boyfriend weeks after being crowned Miss Universe, and since then has dated several men -- from filmmakers to industrialists -- without feeling the need to commit.

She's a defiantly single mother, one who doesn't fear stereotyping.

Gossip has always followed around the pretty Sonam Kapoor.

There has been much whispering about an alleged involvement with her first co-star Ranbir, and the actress has been linked to Cyrus Sahukar and director Punit Malhotra as well.

She isn't sharing details, and, in her own words, says she's too young to commit.

He might be a happily married man now, but back in the day, Kumar's prowess as an industry casanova was legendary.

From Raveena Tandon to Shilpa Shetty to Priyanka Chopra, Akshay's list is pretty sensational.

Ever since Kangna made her Bollywood mark with Gangster, there's been buzz linking her with directors, co-stars and sons of former actors.

She's kept mum about it all, but is clearly reluctant to settle down anytime soon.

He hasn't been around very long, but Kapoor's enjoyed quite the enviable list, having dated Kareena Kapoor and, allegedly, having had affairs with co-stars Vidya Balan and Priyanka Chopra.

Piggy Chops came into the industry single and -- judging from her conquests, from Akshay Kumar, Harman Baweja and Shahid Kapoor -- she sure likes to mingle.

She's hot, she's young, and her star is on the rise -- can't blame her if she hasn't found Mr Right yet.
