If not an actor, what would you have been?

A very bad chartered accountant.

A lie you tell often?

That I would be a very bad CA!

What is your pet peeve?

At Bollywood parties, no one dances, while I really like to dance.

What brings a smile on your face?

Whenever my parents wake up and see my name or picture in the papers and feel happy that I’ve made it.

What is your biggest takeaway from working with Ranveer Singh in Gully Boy?

Being absolutely passionate and true to your art.

What would your detox menu be?

Food made by my mom.

And your feel-good binge...?

Aloo, puri and kheer, all made by Mom.

A show that you binge-watched?

The Patriot.

What’s your favourite social media app?

I’m quite fond of Instagram.

Are you a romantic or a realist?

I’m a complete romantic.

On My Phone

The first app I check in the morning: Inshorts
Most re-watched on YouTube: Dance tutorials by Ian Eastwood
Last Insta post: About the new HP Spectre 360, it’s quite swanky with great specs!
On speed dial: My younger brother
Favourite filter: I don’t use filters on Insta. I use Snapseed. Most of it would be grainy or cinematic.
The last person you call at night: My manager (Radhika)

Who would you swipe right for on Tinder?

I’m not sure if Deepika Padukone is on Tinder, but it would be her.

A piece of advice you wish someone gave you 10 years ago?

That it’s better to sign up with a manager rather than thinking of walking randomly into auditions on your own.
