Your favourite Indian dishes?
Sweet and sour. But mostly sweets like gajar and suji-halwa. When I checked in here, I demanded my favourite halwa. I also like ice-cream and chocolate cakes.

What kind of music do you like?
European, Indian and Pakistani classical. Kumar Gandharv, Bhimsen Joshi, Mehndi Hasan, Abida Parveen and Ghulam Ali are my favourites.

Do you like Hindi film songs?
Of course. Mohd Rafi and Kishore Kumar are my all-time favourites.

And films?
Mostly historical or period films.

Any movie you haven't got a chance yet to watch?
I want to take some time out and see Lagaan and Asoka.

Your favourite actor/actresses?
Sanjay Dutt and Karisma Kapoor as I also belong to this young generation.

How do you spend your free time?
I read a lot. Even when I am travelling, I try to visit airport bookshops. Recently I read Jehad, The Hidden Face of God.

You've read anything on bin Laden lately?
Not really. I haven't read anything on him as nothing worthy was available.

Your idea of dressing up?
I prefer dressing up comfortably and decently as a working woman. Since I travel a lot, I prefer to limit my luggage to one suitcase. So I always use a white duppatta and black pair of shoes that goes perfect with all combinations and shades.

Which are the cities you would like to move around in India?
Shimla is my favourite. But I would love to go to Mumbai as my parents grew up there.
