My Favourite

My wife introduced me to malts nearly 18 years ago. Lagavulin 16 YO is my favourite, along with the Japanese malts Yamazaki and Nikka. I also enjoy good red wine — Bordeaux, Chianti and Rioja are perfect.

Punjabis love their food. My favourite Indian cuisine, however, is south Indian — it features simple preparations that are rich in flavour. I prefer Japanese and Asian cuisines to Italian or continental.

As a family, we love to travel and I have several favourite destinations: Maldives for the water and to be by ourselves or Canada for a road trip, trekking, fishing, biking and other outdoor activities. This summer, we are planning a Scandinavian cruise.

I prefer abstracts and I like colour; my favourite artists are Manu Parekh, Prabhakar Kolte and Vijay Shinde. I recently bought Krishna by Wasim Kapoor and am now looking for a particular Buddha painting.

I am a huge Hindi movie buff. I enjoy watching all kinds of movies (I’m a producer’s delight) and my all-time favourites are Hum Dono, Deewar and Karz. I like Raju Hirani’s genre of films — big in concept and flawless in execution. I thought Vicky Donor was a brilliant film — an unconventional subject handled lightly and perfectly.
