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. My good friend, Karan Wahi recently did it in Dubai and his video bowled me over. It too wants that rush of adrenaline.

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 (laughs out loud). I hope Asha is not reading this. If I had to name one, it had to be the one and only Kajol.

Would you do a show like Bigg Boss?
No... I like my privacy. I can't live with the idea of someone watching over me right from the time I wake up. The idea of being confined like that in a house is not very appealing to me.

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.

What was the last movie you watched?
The Gift.
