How long you been at Sabras Radio?

It’s been 19 amazing years.  WOW! Where has the time gone.

When did you realise that you wanted to become a radio jockey?

I actually wanted to be a Bollywood actor when I was a kid more specifically Amitabh Bachchan (like millions of other kids).  I guess being a RJ was the next best thing.  I get to perform and entertain the world just like they do.

What do you enjoy most about being on air?

The buzz, the excitement, the energy, the music, meeting & chatting to the artists & of course all the fantastic listeners.

Memorable on air moment?

I have an off air moment. I’d just finished interviewing Deepika Padukone at her hotel and was leaving.  I was putting on my jacket and I was struggling for ages to get it on.  Deepika was just staring at me, after a while she went “Ahem that’s a girl’s coat”.  Turns out I’d confused HER jacket with mine.

Memorable on air caller?

Has to be the girl who said she loved me and wanted to marry me and if I didn’t she’d kidnap me. Scary but Sweet!!

Favorite Pastime?

Watching movies, listening to music, chilling with friends, playing with my nieces, long walks, going to concerts & shows and above all sleeping..LOL!

Hobbies?

Magic! I love doing magic tricks.  I’ve been teaching myself since I was a kid.  I’m not great but it definitely impresses the ladies..hahaha

Most important person in your life?

GOD! Without him, me, you, this world this universe wouldn’t exist.  I’d say that’s pretty important.  Have faith in the up above and belief in your heart and you can achieve anything you want in your life.

Happiest moment in your life?

Every day is a happy moment in my life.  To be happy and to make others happy that’s what makes me happy.

Favourite singer?

Nobody comes close to rocking a mike like the versatile & unforgettable playback singer Kishore Kumar!

Favourite song?

Jaane Jaan Dhoondta Phir Raha”fromJawani Diwani (1972) – Kishore Kumar & AshaBhonsle on the vocals and the master maestro RD Burman laying down the killer composition.

Favourite food?

It’s got to be home cooked food.  Shak/Rotli, Daar/Bhaat & any kind of Chicken, Meat or Lamb.  Just make it spicy. #Yummy

Favourite drink?

A cool Chocolate Milkshake anytime.  If you want to know what else meet me at the bar.

Favourite holiday destination?

Mumbai!! Love the food, the people, the parties, the shopping and of course the intense heat – The city totally rocks!

Favourite TV show?

Don’t really watch much TV but.. (Don’t laugh) I’ve proper got into in Saathiya, Saraswatichandra & Pavitra Rishta. It’s so addictive!! Also Kumud and Purvi are soooo cute.

Childhood Crush?

The eternal glamour queen Parveen Babi.  I fell in love with her after watching Shaan. She looked so hot in the “Pyar Karne Waale” song!

A song you often sing in the shower?

I don’t know if you can call it singing, more like loud incomprehensible sounds that vaguely resemble a song.  At the moment it’s all about ‘Dilliwali Girlfriend’ from Yeh Jawaani Hai Diwani.
