One of my favourite dishes is the Thai-style minced chicken with basil leaves— ‘Gai Pad Krapao’. I am a big fan of Thai cuisine. My go-to place for eating out is The Junoon and Rim Naam at The Oberoi.


I follow a fitness regime that one can sustain for life. My workout regime involves a combination of running and walking on the treadmill. I ensure I go to the gym at least 4-5 times a week.


I love travelling and it has always been a big part of my life. ‘Gladiator’ and ‘Troy’ are my all-time favourite movies. I recently binge-watched ‘Sacred Games’. One of my favourite books is Marshall Goldsmith’s ‘What Got You Here Won’t Get You There’. Listening to Mohammad Rafi songs is pure joy.
