My house is at Riddhi Gardens, in Goregaon. The Film City is close by and the highway. The airport are just a stone’s throw away.

The flat has two bedrooms which is perfect for a bachelor. Everything has either been hand-picked by me or gifted to me.

My fans have made contributions to the décor with items like wind chimes and over a hundred idols.

Colour riot
The ceiling has been painted black. It reflects the way I tend to think — in extremes. The walls are red.

I’m not a narcissist, but earlier, I had 15-20 pictures of mine on the walls but I have taken them off. I have made a fresh start with Aamir I don’t want to remember the past.

I don’t host parties. To be honest, I don’t even like people coming over. But I love my near and dear ones visiting me.

Be it the sofa or the doormat, I am possessive about each and every thing in my house. Being a bookworm, I have a mini-library in my bedroom. The collection is huge. When I buy a bigger place, I will expand it.

I’m a cleanliness freak. When I get back from a long shoot of three to four days, I must find the house spic and span.

Perfect look
I have a habit of picking up handicrafts from the places I visit. I have a bow and arrow set, drums, spears, masks and a Nepali knife.

Most of the time, you will find me in the living room.

That’s where I relax, watch TV listen to music or work on the laptop.

The bedroom is for the bedtime stories.
