Cinema
Rahul Roy
“I watch a film if it is good, irrespective of who is acting in it. I was a big fan of actor Rahul Roy after I watched him in ‘Junoon’. I almost fell in love with him and kept dreaming about him long after I watched the movie. I was his fan for the longest time.”

Author
Brian L. Weiss
“I have lost count of the number of times I have read ‘Many Lives, Many Masters’ by Brian L Weiss. This book changed my perception towards life and made me realise that everything can be done if it is balanced well. This book has helped me understand the importance of life. The book has prevented me from slipping into a state of despair.”

Travel
Paris
“I had a brief one-day stopover in Paris and Prague. They are two beautiful places and surely transport you to a different place. I was overwhelmed by the warmth of the people in these two places. They strike a balance between offering a quiet spot for those who need it and also has something to offer for those who love a fast life.”

Music
R D Burman
“I grew up listening to the music by R D Burman. His music is popular both in Bengali and Hindi and it appeals to people of all age groups. My mother and I never tire of listening to his songs. There are other favourites but R D Burman tops the list.”

Inspiration
Sabari
“My mother Sabari has always been my inspiration. As a child, I always wanted to grow up to be pretty like her. She is someone who easily adapts to the changes around her. She and I discuss about dieting and exercising. Between the two of us, my mother quickly incorporates the changes into her diet and begins exercising as well. This attitude has inspired me to be like her when I grow old. Another person who has had a definite influence on me is Sushmita Sen. She achieved so much as a young girl and I always wanted to be like her.”

Food
Sashimi
“I love Japanese food and my favourite is Sashimi. This is smoked salmon cut into small pieces and had raw. I also can’t get enough of Sushi. I am a foodie but I make sure that I eat everything that I like in moderation. I don’t believe in overeating just to satisfy my cravings.”
