Debut/first break: Sangharsh (1999), as a child actor

High point in life: First day of shoot on the sets of Student of the Year (2012)

Currently I am: The brand ambassador of Maybelline and waiting to start shooting for Ayan Mukherji’s sci-fi fantasy film, Dragon

If you had just 10 minutes to get dressed, how would you put the look together?

I’d wear a pair of blue jeans and a white tee with a hot red lipstick — this look can never go wrong!

One superpower you wish you had...

I wish I could clone myself and be at different places at one time.

One thing that you got scolded for the most while growing up?

Not doing my homework on time. I hated it.

You don’t look a day older than 14. Has that ever worked to your disadvantage?

I went to a bar in London once and was denied entry even after I showed them my ID. They thought it was a fake one.

When home alone, you are most likely to be caught...

Playing with Pikka, my cat.

Do you remember your first date?

Yes, it was awkward!

One food item that you absolutely hate and one that you can’t resist...

I hate broccoli and love sushi.

One inanimate object you are very attached to and why?

My phone because it attaches me to everyone else!

The best and worst thing about being the youngest in the family...

The best thing is that you are pampered the most, but I hate that I’m usually the last one to know about anything and everything.

What is the easiest way to piss you off?

By not giving me food on time.

What’s your favourite Sunday memory with your family?

Our lazy Sunday breakfast scenes and barbecue nights.

One rumour you’d want to start about yourself...

There are so many already. Why would I want more? May be that I have signed a Hollywood film!

Do you consider yourself a method actor?

No, I consider myself as a director’s actor. So, I follow the method he/she wants me to.

If you were on Tinder, what is the one thing that’ll make you swipe right?

A very weird bio. Yes, that would interest me!

The first thing that comes to your mind when I say the following:

Mahesh Bhatt: Best friend

Karan Johar: Mentor

Varun Dhawan: Super talented

Sidharth Malhotra: Versatile

Kareena Kapoor: Partner in crime

Pooja Bhatt: Guide

Pikka: My child
