What is the wildest thing you want to do in life?
Talking about doing a wild thing, I can’t think of anything “wild” but I would love to go sky-diving.
What do you love about Asha?
What I love about Asha? Well, it’s her innocence, love for me and her tenderness. She is all heart. Asha is a pure soul. The two things I dislike is her laziness and the fact that Asha tends to underestimate herself.
Who is the one actress you did like to romance?
There are so many of them. I hope Asha is not reading this. If I had to name one, it had to be the one and only Kajol.
What kind of movies you like to watch?
I love watching films, irrespective of its genre. But if I have to select, then thriller drama is one genre that holds a special place in my heart.
So who are your favourite hero and heroine?
Well for actors, Tom Hanks, Nicolas Cage, Morgan Freeman, Daniel Day-Lewis top my chart. And as long as the actresses are concerned I believe Kajol and Meryl Streep are two power packed performers.
