Where do you dine when you want to splurge?
I love Cibo at Hotel Janpath (Janpath Lane, Connaught Place; 43029291). The Italian cuisine is delicious. If I feel like having Indian food, it’s Baluchi at The Lalit (Barakhamba Avenue, Connaught Place; 44447777)
Your favourite café?
Barista Coffee Shop in Khan Market (15, Main Road, Khan Market; 41757969).
Where did you go out on your first date?
Kamla Nagar market.
Your favourite market?
The Janpath street market is just amazing. I love the stylish accessories that I can pick up for a song there.
Where would you hang out during school/college days?
My favourites were Kamla Nagar market near Delhi University and M-Block market, GK-I, whenever I frequented South Delhi.
Which are your favouriteparty spots?
Mostly, it’s Urban Pind (4, N-Block market, GK-I; 9818805909) and F-Bar and Lounge (The Ashok, 50-B, Chanakyapuri; 26111066, 26110101). The music is quite peppy and the crowd is cool.
Tell us one thing about the Delhi fashion weeks that irritates you and one thing that you like.
We get very little time to work out in a schedule packed with shows, and I am a health freak, so you see, it’s important that I don’t break my daily routine. But with the fashion week in Delhi getting bigger and better each time, it also means that I get more work!
Where do you work out?
I usually work out at Planet X Health Club (F-25, Main Vikas Marg, Preet Vihar; 9212449059).
Delhi’s coolest monument?
Jamali-Kamali Complex near the Qutub. My schedule is always so hectic, that I hardly get time to relax. I am not much of a party person either. The peace and and calmness of this place soothes my heart.
After late-night parties, where do you head to for a bite?
It is Gulati Restaurant any day (6, Pandara Road market; 23388836), as it is open throughout the night. The food is worth every penny that you spend.
Where did you buy your latest designer outfit from?
I bought a Polo Club cap from Beverly Hills (F-124, Ambience Mall, MG Road, Gurgaon) and a Lecoanet-Hemant shirt from Lhmen (9971512539).
Your favourite bookshop?
Om Book Shop in South Extension-I (24653792). They’ve a good collection.
