Dine out, order in, or cook a meal on weekends?

I don’t have fixed weekends since I play six days a week and take a day off. It could be any one day of the week. On my day off, I like to take my friends out for lunch.

Can: cook a five-course meal/make a sandwich/boil water/don’t know how the gas works.

I prefer home-cooked meals by my mother, especially mutton and chicken.

On weekends: work out like it’s just another day/go easy/exercise…what’s that?

On my day off, I like to relax. Catch up on sleep, wake up late, go for a drive or shopping.

Strictly salads and grilled chicken, or cheese/chocolate cheat for the weekend?

Since I eat salad and grilled chicken through the week, on weekends, I like to indulge in pizzas, burgers, and biryani.

Where do you party when in Mumbai?

I am not a party person, and can’t agree with loud music. I prefer get-togethers at home.

Where do you love getting breakfast in Mumbai and your go-to order.

I mostly eat at the hotels I stay in. But last time I was in the city, I visited Britannia [Ballard Estate] and loved the kheema pav.

Street food that makes your day.

Chicken rolls at Bademiya in Colaba.

Flip-flops or converse shoes on Sunday?

I like wearing sports shoes or sneakers. I also wear loafers quite often.

Books, music or movies?

I love action and sci-fi movies.

Board games or outdoor sports?

I love playing carrom, chess, darts.

What one thing can totally make your weekend?

Going out for a bike ride or drive alone

What one thing can break it?

Nothing can stop me from doing something I like

A TV show you could watch reruns of all Sunday.

I am currently tripping on Game of Thrones
