Acting or photography?
It’s very difficult to choose, as difficult as choosing between one’s mother and father.
What’s the one thing you’d love to capture with your camera?
A photograph that epitomises true happiness.
Why only one? But, if given an option I would go out with Meryl Streep.
A colour that best describes your life?
You have worked in a bakery, in theatre, in advertisements and on the big screen. Which has been the closest to your heart?
Everything, because it’s all a part of a beautiful journey called life.
A role you think you were born to play?
A paint salesman. Ha ha ha!
Describe your typical holiday?
A lot of theatre and great food with the family.

Reading glasses and a copy of Mad magazine.
What’s your comfort food?
Most overrated virtue?

Johnny Lever, Karan Johar and Abhishek Bachchan.
Your last big splurge?
Purchasing a Mercedes car for my wife.
You have 30 seconds to pack for a trip. What do you take?
Lots of fresh underwear.
What helps you unwind at the end of the day?
Watching a movie.
If you could go back in time, where would you go?
The era of the Renaissance, because some of the most inspirational people lived at that time and changed the way we live, eat and breathe.
The last line of your autobiography will read…
