On my pinboard - Arya

Nina C George, DH News Service, Jan 3 2018, 22:05 IST

Actor Arya is known for his outstanding performances in Tamil films like 'Arinthum Ariyamalum', 'Pattiyal', 'Naan Kadavul', 'Madrasapattinam' and 'Raja Rani'. He is making his debut in the Kannada film industry with 'Rajaratha' which is produced by Ajay Reddy. Arya will also be seen playing interesting characters in his forthcoming projects like 'Ghajinikanth', 'Santhana Devan' and 'Sangamithra'. He is fond of travelling and plays football on a regular basis.

Cinema

Kamal Haasan

"I am a not a movie buff. I can count the number of movies that I have watched so far. But among the actors whose work I admire is Kamal Haasan. I like him for his versatility. I also find the work of actors Surya and Vikram extremely impressive. They are talented and dedicated to their craft. I can watch football matches one after the other, but I can never watch movies at the same pace."

Music

Michael Jackson

"I am not a big fan of music and I don't take any extra effort to put together a playlist. Among the very few musicians whose albums I have listened to are Michael Jackson. I enjoy listening to most of his songs and I feel that he has an inimitable style and voice. I usually listen to music when I am working out or travelling."

Travel

Rishikesh

"I travel extensively and some of my favourite travel destinations are Kashi, Rishikesh, Sikkim and a few places in Kerala. I love backpacking by myself. I always make it a point to try the local food and understand the culture of the places that I visit. I never stay in five star hotels and prefer to find a small place somewhere in the interiors."

Food

'Mutton biryani'

"My food intake is very limited and I am careful with my diet. But if I have to mention a favourite dish then it is my mother's preparation of 'Mutton biryani'. She also makes good south Indian food but her biryani is unbeatable. I have tried continental and Italian dishes but I am not very fond of them. I can eat it just to survive."

Books

Tinkle

"I don't read books. The only books that I have read so far are Tinkle and Chandamama. I don't enjoy reading. I can never go beyond three pages of any book. Somehow, I have never been inclined to reading. I have forced myself to read but I have never been successful at it."

Inspiration

P T Usha

"I was inclined towards athletics from my childhood and I looked up to P T Usha. I wanted to be like her because nobody has ever represented the country in as many prestigious international events as she did. Some of the others who have inspired me are Cristiano Ronaldo, Sachin Tendulkar and Lionel Messi. Their dedication and commitment towards their sport is admirable."
