Dino Morea

Bollywood actor Dino Morea made his debut with the film 'Pyaar Mein Kabhi Kabhi'. His second film 'Raaz' moved on to become a hit and was the project that got him noticed.

Among his other films, thriller movie 'Gunaah' which also starred Bipasha Basu, worked in his advantage and got him many film offers. 'Plan' where he acted with Sanjay Dutt and 'Aksar' which starred Emraan Hashmi, got him a lot of attention. The actor was also a part of the multi-starrer movie 'Acid Factory', which also included Fardeen Khan, Irrfan Khan, Manoj Bajpayee, Aftab Shivdasani and Danny Denzongpa.

He was last seen in the bilingual movie 'Solo' as Col Raunaq Sachdeva. The actor was also seen in a short film called 'Maa', which was written by Niranjan Iyengar. Dino is producing the upcoming film 'Helmet' and will be seen on screen in an untitled project by Satram.

Actor
Amitabh Bachchan
"One of my favourite actors in Bollywood is Amitabh Bachchan. I grew up watching his movies and the stories told during his time were really good ones. I thoroughly enjoyed movies like 'Deewar', 'Shahenshah' and 'Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar' in which he ruled the screen. His voice, the way he conducts himself, his command over the language are some of the things I love about him. In Hollywood, my favourites include Jack Nicholson, Al Pacino, Brad Pitt and Denzel Washington."

Inspiration
Warren Buffet
"As I was growing up, I was touched by the rags-to-riches stories of many people around. I am deeply inspired by Warren Buffett. The fact that he started making investments at a very young age and one did not have to be an extremely intelligent person to make such choices inspired me. He did what he felt like and he followed his gut feeling. He invested in companies from a young man's perception of what a company would be like, without the kind of analysis that is done today."

Travel
Goa
"The easiest and quickest getaway for me is Goa. I am a beach person; I love
the water, the beachfront and the food there. Everytime one steps into Goa,
one gets into the 'holiday mode' instantly. Goa has that kind of ambience to
it. I do not have a favourite place to go to as I like experiencing different
things and want to see new places and new countries. I want to see most of
the world before I die."

Food
'Tuna Carpaccio'
"I am an absolute foodie. Be it Indian, Lebanese, Italian or Japanese, I thoroughly enjoy food. I can have Japanese food any day. I especially relish the 'Tuna Carpaccio', which is prepared well and is light. If it's Italian food, I love 'Beef Carpaccio' or 'Truffle Pasta'. I am a health-conscious person but I eat just about anything. I don't care about calories. I just stay away from food that is not cooked in good oil."

Music
Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan

"Music is an important part of my life. It uplifts me. A day without music is a day wasted. I listen to all good tracks and I like to mix it up. I love Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan's music. His singing is outstanding. One of his songs which is my favourite is 'Mere Rashke Qamar'. I also love 'Dub Qawwali', which is
a mix by Gaudi and Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. Other artistes I enjoy listening to are M&M and Snoop Dogg. Rap and hiphop are my 'go-to' music."

Author
Yuval Noah Harari
"I read a lot of autobiographies and biographies now. I loved the 'Sapiens:
A Brief History of Humankind' by Yuval Noah Harari. The book is a phenomenal
rendition about evolution and how the different revolutions like the Agricultural
Revolution and Industrial Revolution changed mankind. Yuval's way of writing
is really interesting. I used to read a lot of fiction earlier but I get my dose of fiction from TV shows now."
