The first thing I have in the morning is chocolate milk with porridge and fruits.

Dietary preference

I am a hardcore non-vegetarian and my favourite dishes are mutton Mughlai curry and biryani.

My lunch comprises a roti, daal, rice, salad along with a curry made of chicken, mutton or fish. A non-vegetarian dish is a must in my meals.

Evening snack

I snack on four eggs in some form or the other in the evenings

Your dinner

For diner I have salads and a clear soup.

Favourite desserts

I love molten chocolate desserts like mud pie; anything with gooey chocolate.

Fitness regime

I like to swim to keep fit and I run on the beach when I am not shooting.

Idea of a romantic meal

A French preparation of fish or chicken with a salad and some Sangria by the side. I would like to sit by the seaside with the sound of waves crashing in the background. And of course, the most important thing is the company, which heightens the entire experience

Your culinary abilities

I can boil water very well and yes, I can make masala tea.

Favourite cook

For me my mother-in-law is the best cook in the world. She makes a rare dish called gulab jamun ki sabzi.

Indigo Deli and Yoga Bar in Bandra are my favourite

Italian and Mughlai. I love pastas and biryanis.

I like guava juice and occasionally I indulge in Sangria.


Spice you like

I like red chillies, though I can’t eat lots of them.


Food you feel you resemble: 

I am like an apple. Apple keeps both the doctor and negativity away.

A childhood memory associated with food

My mom’s preparation of kofta pulao which is the tastiest dish I have ever had. Whenever I am feeling a little low, I ask her to cook it for me.
