Man spends £2k on London Underground billboard in desperate bid to find wife

Not everyone wants to spend hours swiping through dating apps.

And since the game has changed in recent years (thank you coronavirus), one man used a unique way of finding the one.

Jeevan Bhachu, 31, is on the hunt to meet Mrs Right so he's spent an eye-watering £2,000 in the process.

The London man, from Ealing, plastered his face on a 20ft billboard in Oxford Circus tube station.

In the picture, Jeevan is looking suave in a pink suit alongside his signature pick-up line "Best Indian you'll takeaway".

His £2,000 campaign, set to run for two weeks, launched on Thursday (March 3) – when the London tube strikes happened.

It sadly meant that Jeevan received no applicants on the first day of his advertisement, although now he's inundated with offers.

He told MyLondon: "It's going well, I've had about 50 [applicants] so far.

"Some are genuine, some not so genuine. I've got to sort through them all and see if anyone catches my eye."

On his website, Jeevan said: "Since Covid, it's been tough to get yourself out there.

"Apps are declining and I'm more interested in meeting up than countless texting and swiping.

"So it's time to do something more creative! I'm open to any race for my ideal partner.

"Someone family orientated, humble and wants to make the most of life. Appreciating humour and not taking life too seriously.

"Having a good personality is important, with a positive and modern mindset (I am far from a traditionalist)."

Jeevan, who DJs in his spare time, was inspired by Malik who had success with putting up huge adverts of himself.

Malik scooped thousands of applicants from women wanting to get to know him.

He added: "I've been on Tinder and I've been Bumble.

"I think I'll get a broader crowd from this billboard, maybe older people who don't use apps. Even if I get one match that's a success."

And depending on how it goes, Jeevan is thinking of expanding the campaign to Kings Cross or other stations across London.
