Actor Neil Bhoopalam swears by house parties and board games and admits to dropping by his friends’ house to eat up all their food.

Dine out, order in, or cook a meal on weekends?
Order in or go over to a friend’s house and eat their food like Moose Miller (a comic character who eats food from his neighbours’ refrigerator).

Can: cook a five-course meal/a sandwich/boil water/don’t know how the gas works?
I’ve been told that I make very good sandwiches.

On weekends: work out like it’s just another day/go easy/exercise…what’s that?
Sunday invariably becomes a day I don’t workout. It’s probably a coincidence.

Strictly salads and grilled chicken, or cheese/chocolate cheat for the weekend?
To be honest, the concept of “a weekend” is not in my line of work. It’s more of a 9-to-5/Monday to Friday work concept. A day is a day for me, irrespective of it being a weekend or a weekday. So, cheese and chocolates can be consumed whenever you want to enjoy cheese and chocolate.

Where I party...
House parties are the place to be.

Where I love getting breakfast and my go-to order.
It’s mainly oats for breakfast. If I have to leave the house before our maid gets in, I make it myself- to go.

Tea or coffee?

Some complicated Iced Frappe person or straight up espresso person?
Neither. I prefer Americano/black (with cold milk on the side).

Cosmopolitan or whisky on the rocks?
Whisky; make that two!

Street food that makes my day.
Street food ain’t happening for me; I have a sensitive stomach.

Party till dawn or wake up for yoga at dawn?
Neither as both require a special level of superhuman will power.

Books, music or movies?
Music-movies-books in that order.

Couch potato or painting the town red?

A movie/book I’ve been meaning to catch up on.
The Rocky Horror Show.

Art house cinema or Hollywood blockbuster?
A well-made film.

Board games or outdoor sports?
Being the monsoon, I will stick with board games or UNO.

Twitter or Instagram?
Instagram seems more fun.

Favourite hashtag.
#hashtag ?

What is the one thing that can totally make your weekend?
Performing on stage.

A TV show that you could watch reruns of all Sunday.
A cartoon called “Pinky and the Brain”.
