Nothing beats Thai food in the shacks of Koh Samui and Krabi. The flavours of fresh lemongrass, coconut and kafir lime are unbeatable. I’m a sucker for ice cream and would drive out for a Nirula’s HCF any day of the week!

We’ve had many memorable holidays, but the top rankers would be the water villa in the Maldives and Lauterbrunnen, a Swiss village nestled in a valley of 72 waterfalls. For bonding, there’s nothing like white water rafting.

A cold Delhi evening, wood crackling in the fireplace, a fine malt and Frank Sinatra for company—just thinking about it gives me goosebumps. Some sad songs by Mohammed Rafi and Kishore Kumar have a similar effect.

I remember seeing Shabana Azmi and Javed Akhtar perform Kaifi aur Main (the story of her parents) at Epicentre in Gurgaon. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the theatre. Watching Chicago on Broadway was amazing, too.
