One word that describes you best?
If a traffic constable hauls you up, what will you do?
Slip him 100 bucks, what every normal Indian would do!
You get high on…
Any of my vintage bikes.
The colour ‘pink’ for you is…
A major no-no!
The last time you rode on a bus?
One year ago in London.
The one law you would break if you could get away with it?
I’m a law-abiding citizen and wouldn’t break any laws. But if I were to implement a law, I’d totally bring in martial law.
If you could have chosen your own name, what would you have chosen?
Arjun! I love my name.
What is the weirdest thing that ever went into your mouth?
Would have to be a tie between monkey’s brain and ox tongue!
What did you do with your first pay cheque?
I bought my second machine, a manual Singer that I still have.
Choose: Air India or Indian Railways?
Definitely Indian Railways.
You are late for work and all the roads are jammed. Choose a mode of transport: a cycle, a horse or a skateboard.
Why? I might just declare a holiday and go home! But if I had to, it would most definitely be a horse. I love horses. Also riding to work is very sexy, I think.
Earth’s crowded and full of trash. Choose another planet.
Pluto, the smallest planet and absolutely no humans!
If you could be born either rich or intelligent, which one would you choose?
Without a thought, intelligent!
What makes your day?
Coffee and a day in bed with my babies Daisy and Dazzle (both are cocker spaniels).
What screws it up?
I don’t really know. Depends. Incompetency to a large extent – it irritates me especially with intelligent people around me.
What makes you feel sexy?
Being in bed in Goa.
If you were the last person left on Earth, what would you do?
Wow! Start all over again with a brilliant plan!
Your first kiss was...
A place where you would like to be lost for a month?
Paris at the moment.
The last movie that made you cry?
It definitely has to be 3 Idiots, which i saw recently.
If you could have had a star perform at your wedding, who would it have been?
I would have chosen either Shakira, Beyoncé or even Angelina Jolie.
Life in the fast food lane. Choose your menu.
I’d prefer to pick grilled fish served with a lot of veggies. Just delicious.
