'Tech toys are my biggest indulgence'
Which is your favourite movie of all time and why?
Probably A Fish called Wanda. I think it's the funniest movie I 've seen in my life.
What is your biggest indulgence?
Tech toys. I'm a technology junkie and I simply have to have every new gadget.
How do you deal with embarrassment at work?
I come straight out with it and own up before anybody else can make fun of me.
How do you maintain your looks? What's your diet like?
My diet is honestly not that rich. I eat pretty much anything but I avoid oily food. The only thing I make a conscious effort towards is to drink a lot of water and eat a lot of fruit.
What is your workout regime like?
I try to variate. I try to do things that interest me. Right now, I am doing functional training like pull-ups, rope-climbing, balancing...It's the kind of exercise that you do in real life.

'I have spent most of my life in boarding school'
Which is your favourite travel destination?
I like Los Angeles. It feels like Mumbai; it's a film town and everybody is in the film industry over there.
Which is your favourite cuisine?
Generally home food. I have spent most of my life in boarding school and I didn't get ghar ka khaana, so I like proper home food -- dal, chawal and sabzi.
Which is your favourite drink?
Where do you love hanging out?
Either at my own house or at friends' houses.
What is your idea of a perfect day?
Wake up late. Have lunch with good friends or with (girlfriend) Avantika, watch a movie in the afternoon and then hang out at home with friends.

What is your passion?
Watching and acting in movies. I can watch two movies a day!

What is your biggest turn-off?
People who are unintelligent or apathetic.
Do you suffer from any phobias?
Nothing, I'm not scared of anything.
