Mila Kunis is the one I'd love to work with: Arjun Kapoor

He arrived with a bang with Ishaqzaade. With Gunday and 2 States he showed his staying power in Bollywood. In an interview with Brunch he talks of his fantasy, fears and what it means to be Anil Kapoor's nephew.

The first thing you did on your first day on set. out the make-up van, which was to be my house for the next 90 days in Lucknow.

You're hardly seen clean shaven. How come?

If I do come clean shaven you won't recognise me. Most of my roles require a stubble, it's an occupational hazard, which, by the way, I love.

Which part of your body would you insure?

My eyes.

Three reasons a woman should date you.

Just one reason: I'll do whatever the woman would want me to do.

You're most careless about.

My wallet.

One lie you often get away with.

"I'm stuck in traffic!"

Share a secret with us.

I once had a phobia of ceiling fans. Each time I'd stretch my hand towards the moving fan, I'd fear losing my fingers.

Your favourite way to unwind.

I watch a movie or a TV show. Right now, I'm enjoying Season Two of House of Cards.

A piece of advice you wish someone had given you when you were 14.

To get up and play a sport instead of just watching it.

So what do you play now?

I manage to play cricket and kabaddi, but wish I'd learnt how to play football. I'm a die-hard Chelsea fan and have been tracking the game for more than a decade.

A Bollywood actor you are dying to work with.

Anil Kapoor.

A gadget you unfailingly carry with you at all your shoots.

My phone.

One place you feel most at home, apart from your home.

A film set.

One Hollywood actor you'd love to work with.

Mila Kunis.

You never leave the gym without...

My clothes and turning off the lights!

If you were to direct a film, who'd you cast?

It would be fun directing Ranveer. The female lead would depend on the plot.

One person, dead or alive that you've always wanted to meet.

José Mourinho, the Chelsea manager.

One disadvantage of being Arjun Kapoor.

I'm constantly on a diet.

The last line of your autobiography would read...

I don't think I'd have the patience to reach the last chapter of my autobiography if I was writing it.
