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."
