Do you work out regularly?
Yes. I do work out for half an hour to one hour for five days in a week. I do weight training four times in a day. Apart from this, I climb 15 floors everyday as I live on that floor.
I know the requirements of my body. Everyone should know his body type and exercise accordingly. I run 7-8 km everyday on treadmill. Though I have not tried yoga, I am aware of its benefits. In order to keep myself in shape I do light weight exercises and cardio.
Do you follow any special diet?
When it comes to food, I don’t throw tantrums. I eat everything. As I am very busy these days, I find it tough to follow any specific diet routine. I am blessed with a good metabolism that allows me to gorge on anything. I love Punjabi and Mughlai foods. During Roadies we had to stay in Lucknow for few days where I devoured on Tunde kebab, I just loved it. I miss the street food of Nizamuddin and Chandni Chowk very much. Homemade Makke Di Roti and Sarson Da Saag also titillate my taste buds. As I have a sweet tooth, I can’t resist myself from eating kulfi, falooda and jalebi.
What do you do to get rid of stress?
Playing guitar and doing work outs relax me. I make it a point to run after my shooting everyday no matter how much tired I am. Running gives me a soothing feeling. I love listening to music especially sufi songs. My favourite band is Coldplay.
What do you do in your spare time?
I love playing squash and reading books. I like non-fiction books rather than fiction. I read a lot of shayaris of Galibh. I have read Geeta also but not out of religious beliefs.
