Jacqueline Fernandez, Aladin’s Jasmine, can be wooed with hot chocolate, pizza with all the topping and cake. Roshmila Bhattacharya tells more.

What do you start the day with?
A litre of water, it’s been a habit for years. This is usually followed by a breakfast of fruits. On occasions, I opt for a boiled egg or an omelette.

And what do you end the day with?
Water again, I’m perpetually thirsty.

Your first culinary experiment?
I tried to make toast and burnt it to a crisp.

As a child is there something you had to have every day?
Cornflakes, I even had it for dinner.

You’re still hooked on cornflakes?
No, now it’s fruit. A banana a day.

Your favourite eating place?
Mirah in Bahrain, may be because I grew up eating there. Their sushi is to die for.

When you eat out what do you inevitably order?
Grilled fish and a salad.

And what do you usually serve guests at home?
A salad, some fish.. I can grill a mean salmon.. and Pan Thai Noodles.

A food item you abhor?

A favourite dessert?
Anything chocolaty.

Your favourite drink?
Nariyal paani.

Is that what you like to cool down with in summer?
Yeah, tender coconut water, along with chilled lemonade and thanda thanda nimboo paani.

A roadside favourite?
Meetha paan. And bhelpuri, I had it at the cinema just recently.

If you weren’t a movie star what would you binge on?

Do you have a miracle diet?
No, eat and exercise, that’s my motto.

When you go shopping, what do you usually end up buying?
I usually go with a shopping list… Vegetables, fruits, fish and milk. No chocolates and ice creams but I do pick up some packets of digestive biscuits.

If you could choose your last meal it would be..
Lumprice from Sri Lanka. It’s a rice dish with prawns, chicken, beef and chutney, all wrapped in a banana leaf and baked.
