Evelyn Sharma, actor, swears by organic food, and can cook a five-course meal using whatever is in your fridge.

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

I prefer going to restaurants during the week when they are less crowded. On weekends, I enjoy staying in and inviting friends over. Sometimes I even surprise them with a German dish like Spätzle, which I prepare for them.

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

Five-course meal. Open your fridge and I will cook a meal using what I see.

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

On weekends, I like to sleep in and find peace in meditation.

Q) A TV show you could watch reruns of all Sunday.

Veep. It’s hilarious and I love Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

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

I’m into organic food all week long. You are what you eat.

Q) Where do you party?

I love spontaneous weekend trips to Dubai or Thailand. And that’s where the party is at.

Q) Where do you love getting breakfast and your go-to order?

I have juices and crepes for breakfast. So there are many places around Bandra and a new one to try out every day, like Suzette, Saltwater Cafe and Bagel Shop.

Q) Couch potato or painting the town red?

Pyjamas, chips, movie, couch equals best day.

Q) A movie/book I’ve been meaning to catch up on.

I’ve been reading Great Expectations.

Q) Art house cinema or Hollywood blockbuster?

I’m a fan of romcoms. I love movies that make you cry in the climax and paint a smile on your face in the end.

Q) Board games or outdoor sports?

Outdoor sports. Swimming, tennis, horse riding are some of my favourites.
