While most actors shy away from saying the 'S' word, actor Annu Kapoor pleasantly surprised the audience at HT City Stars in the City session on Friday, declaring that in his view, the only two things that matter most to a person are – music and sex.

The actor visited HT City with Akshay Kumar, the co producer of his upcoming film The Shaukeens, along with co-actors Piyush Mishra and Anupam Kher. Their candid chat with the winners of the HT City contest was a laugh riot, and had the actors share hilarious anecdotes from their lives.

When asked about his


in life, Annu said, "

Puri duniya mein jo logon ko shauq hai who music aur sex (ka) hai. Nature ne manushya jaati ko jo do anupam vardaan diye hain, woh hain sex aur music

," he said, leaving the audience in splits.

The film, that releases November 7, revolves around three lecherous old men, who try to woo a young girl, played by Lisa Haydon. The veteran actors, all of who happened to alumni of Delhi’s National School of Drama, said that they had a blast shooting for the comedy.

"We are all great friends and we had a great time shooting," said Anupam, adding in jest that he had no inhibitions acting lecherous on-screen. "We had the most amazing girl (Haydon), she turned our attempts to be lecherous into an innocent act. She was unaware of what we were feeling. That is the biggest tragedy of this comedy."

The film is based in Delhi, which is apt for the storyline, added Akshay. "

Meri paidayash dilli ki hai. In ki (the cast) boli bhi yahaan jaisi hai, Abhishek (Sharma-director) ne bhi is film ko alag roop mein dekha hai. In teeno ne jaise kaam kiya hai,

I must tell you, I laughed so much (at the comic scenes). In fact in the film, I tell them that they are so lecherous, they must be Delhiites," he laughed.
