All the desi grooms out there, there's a piece of great news for all of you. A multi-millionaire father is looking for a groom for his daughter who he says is single, virgin and can speak multiple languages.
Meet 58-year-old Arnon Rodthong, a multi-millionaire from Thailand, who owns a huge durian (yep, the smelliest fruit on the face of the earth) farm in a province in southern Thailand.
Just like any other father in the world, Arnon too is concerned about his 26-year-old daughter, Karnsita Rodthong's marriage and future. So, he decided to take the matter into his own hands and made a bizarre and inescapable offer for his future son-in-law.
Arnon has announced to offer 10 million baht (Rs. 2.19 crore approx.) as well as his entire estate to the man who marries his daughter. In fact, he is even willing to waive off the 'dowry fee' that a groom is expected to pay to his future wife (it's a part of the custom in some parts of Thailand).
According to Arnon, Karnsita helps him run the family business, can speak fluent English and Chinese and is a virgin. "I want someone to take care of my business and make it last. I don't want a person with a bachelor's, or master's or philosopher's degree," he said. He further added, "I want a diligent man. I just want someone with a hard-working attitude. That's all." What's more, there are no restrictions on the future groom's nationality, as long as they 'work hard and make Karnsita happy'.
While the dad has plans of giving it all to his future son-in-law, his daughter seems to have plans of her own on how she wants to use that money.
Reportedly, Karnsita, who is overwhelmed by all the attention she is getting after her father's offer, hints that her future husband might have to struggle to take out money from her father because she would "like to use it herself for plastic surgery in Korea."
Well, now we're curious about that lucky guy who will get Karnsita, 10 million baht and huge durian farms.
