If you weren’t an actress, you would have been...
Everything I am today.
One classic film you would have loved to be part of.
Has motherhood changed you in any way?
If I have to put in one word: completely. Change isn’t even the right word, it has made me evolve.
Bollywood’s sexiest actor.
And the fittest.
Also Arjun Rampal.
The best thing about working with Shah Rukh Khan.
The chemistry we share.
A black sari or a little black dress, which works for you?
It depends on the man who is looking at me.
One outfit that you have been criticised or praised for.
I was praised for a red sari.
If you were the editor of a magazine, who would you put on the cover?
Angelina Jolie. She is the one who inspires me.
The best thing about writing poetry.
Allowing yourself to feel.
The craziest thing a fan’s done for you.

A dessert that best describes you.
Mishti doi or Bengali bonde.
One song that describes your current state of mind.
All of me by John Legend.
Your favourite co-star for a romantic film.
Shah Rukh and Salman.
The biggest surprise you gave someone.
The best surprise to give anyone is to love them back.
Your favourite street food.
Dahi papdi, pani puri and dry bhel.
The best thing about Delhi is...
The hot chocolate fudge from Nirula’s.
What turns you on?
A cultured man.
What makes your day?
Hearing the word Maa every morning. It’s the word that tells me my day’s going to be great because it’s started on the right note.
You destress by...
Hanging upside down on aerial silk.
The last line of your autobiography would read...
"It’s the end of the life of the caterpillar, whom God calls a butterfly."
