A nightmare that haunts you.
My days in jail. I get gooseflesh just thinking about them. They haunt me even in my sleep. Sometimes I wake up in a cold sweat.

Two terms of endearment or cuss words that you keep using.
I use ‘love' and ‘jaan' a lot. And it's a myth that I keep using cuss words. If I ever use a swear word, it is never to abuse anyone.
I use the words f***or s*** when I'm not getting my lines right during the dubbing.

Three actresses you would love to work with.
Kajol, Kareena Kapoor, Katrina Kaif.. they're all Ks. Odd.

Four things you love about being a star.
Acceptance, adulation, appreciation, awards.

Five strengths you cannot live without.
My parents' blessings..the trust of both my daughter's love..Manyata's support..and my belief in myself.

Six things you never leave home without.
My morning prayers, hugs for my nephews and my wife, my wallet, my cell phone, my car.. and a smile on my face.

Seven designer labels in your cupboard.
Armani, Versace, Diesel, Levi's, Pasquale Bruni, Prada and Marco Rici.

Eight love songs you can't do without.
Every breath you take (Police), Strangers in the night (Frank Sinatra), I said I loved you (Michael Bolton), Everything I do (Bryan Adams), Unchained melody (Righteous Brothers), Sacrifice (Elton John), Careless whispers (George Michael) and Hello (Lionel Richie).

Nine movies you can watch again and again.
Mother India, Deewaar, Sholay, J P Dutta's Hathyar, Scarface, Gladiator, Braveheart, Vaastav, Munnabhai 1 and 2.

Ten dishes you gorge on.
Sushi, Sashimi, Chicken Teriyaki, Khichda, Mutton Korma, Chicken braised in wine (which I make very well), Lamb steak, Enchildas, Chicken and macaroni in Balsamella sauce and Ras malai.
