Star of the upcoming film, Roy, Arjun Rampal fields rapid-fire questions!

Best work moment

When everyone is on the same page

Books on your bedside

They keep changing. Right now it's Jerusalem.

Massage or workouts to de-stress


Favourite accessory

Currently, my hat from my film, Roy. My bracelets and oh yes, of course, my sunglasses

Designs that have caught your eye recently

The new Aston Martins

Your IT tools

My MacBook, iPhone, iPad, Traktor for spinning, Final Draft for scripting, Final Cut Pro for editing, go pro for filming and Kindle for reading

Favourite wine

Tough! There are many good ones, it's like asking me what's my fave film; there isn't an answer. Each one has a uniqueness of its own that makes it special.

Favourite TV show

House of Cards, Game of Thrones

Favourite cuisine

Why do we limit ourselves by singling one out? Uff, please -- I'm a foodie.

What food items do you like to shop for?

I start with very healthy items.

I end up buying stuff to cook with the kids.

Last time, we experimented making a lemon tart pie, which turned into a master chef game.

Please don't ask me what I scored, it was embarrassing. LOL!

Newspaper, TV channels and websites you prefer

I don't watch TV. Newspapers, hmm. Websites tend to be specific to what I am looking for. Google zindabad!

Where do you like to sit when being driven? Upfront with the driver or back seat like a sahib?

I love driving, so 90 per cent, it's the driver's seat, with the driver being driven (he is the sahib).

Nine per cent being driven upfront and one per cent at the back, if I'm watching a film.

On a plane, do you prefer to network, sleep or catch up on films and reading?

Eat, drink nice red wine if available and then deep sleep

Fancy coffee or masala tea?

Black coffee

What do you cook on your days off?

Spaghetti carbonara

Are you a beach or mountain person?

Hmmm... beach

Your favourite city

New York

What's your fragrance?

Creed, Diptique, Jo Malone and Alive

You get your work clothes from

Pardon? From the designer who is assigned for the film, I guess

The shoemaker you trust your sole with

LOL, Adidas

Your shaving mantra

Shave only when necessary

The gels and oils and lotions you swear by

Do I look that dandy?

Your favourite eveningwear

Depends on the evening

What's your weekday breakfast like? And weekend?

Two breakfasts: one is a concoction of just fruit, oats and flaxseed, all blended together.

The other is a six-egg-white scramble or an omelette with smoked salmon filling.


The same.

Your current set of wheels

Range Rover and BMW 7-Series

God for you is...

My conscience

Favourite cafe

Le Pain Quotidien

Workday lunch is

Tandoori chicken, bajra roti, spinach sauteed and yellow dal

Your workout regime

That's a different interview altogether. Six days a week. Very innovative and specific to what is required.

A few of your Goddesses are

Laxmi, Laxmi, Laxmi and Saraswati

Alpha males you know

Are no longer alpha once I meet them

Your favourite motto

Just do it!
