An investment banker.

What would you do if you were not a celebrity for a day?

I’d walk out of my house wearing whatever I want and I’d do whatever I want without caring about photographers.

A body part that you’d like to insure.

My brain.

What would you cook on a free day?

Nothing! I would order in.

Breakfast on-the-go would be...

A smoothie.

Three things you’d want if you were stranded on an island.

My loved ones, my scuba diving kit and my sunscreen lotion.

An outfit you can live in.

Shorts and a T-shirt.

We both used to stand on the stage and sing with our fathers.

My phone. I’m pretty low maintenance.

What do you miss most about Ambala?

The clean air and the greenery.

One negative character you wish you’d played.


One thing you were notorious for while growing up.

I was the loudest person in class.

A movie you lie about watching.

All those Gladiator, Lord of The Rings kind of films.

A martial art form you want to learn.


A dialogue that fits many situations.

Bade bade deshon mein aisi choti choti baatein hoti rehti hai.

What’s on your bedside table?

A book, a bottle of water, and my phone.

The biggest turn-on in a man?


And the biggest turn-off?

Self obsession.

Would you rather party or curl up in bed watching a movie/reading a book?

Curl up in bed watching a movie. Always.

The first line of your memoir would read...
