OT: What does a holiday mean to you?
Sonakshi Sinha: An ideal vacation is time reserved just for me or my family — it means total relaxation. I never follow a schedule. My last vacation seems like it was eons ago, so I’m aching to go on one real soon.

OT: Which are your favourite holiday destinations?
Sonakshi Sinha: I love Paris — it’s always buzzing with fashion and romance. London is good for shopping, and the Middle East has the best of everything. Home — with Ma’s cooking — is the place to be on my days off in Mumbai.

OT: Any destination on your holiday wishlist?
Sonakshi Sinha: Definitely beach destinations like Australia and Bali. I also want to explore South America.

OT: Any favourites amongst the places you have shot in?
Sonakshi Sinha: While shooting for Lootera in January 2012, the film set erected in Dalhousie was destroyed because of bad weather. We were forced to trek through knee-high snow and had to shoot some scenes at Kalatop, close to Dalhousie. It is such a romantic and scenic place! Abroad, it will have to be Oman, where we shot some portions of Once Upon A Time in Mumbai 2. It’s a beautiful place and I had a great time when I was there. We stayed at Shangri-La’s Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa. And we did everything from watersports and beach volleyball to admiring the rock formations in the clear blue waters. The food is to die for as well! I love the way they cook everything in olive oil to make it look rich and you can pig out as much as you like.

OT: What do you carry in your travel beauty bag?
Sonakshi Sinha: Lots and lots of make-up! I have my concealer, orange lipstick, blush, kajal, mascara and eyelash curler. I never travel without at least three pairs of sunglasses — I tend to keep losing them. And I always carry my iPad to play games during long flights.

OT: What do you bring back from holidays?
Sonakshi Sinha: Chocolates! And I don’t feel guilty after eating them. Otherwise, it’s clothes and trinkets.

OT: What activities do you enjoy the most during your vacations?
Sonakshi Sinha: Pampering myself! This may sound weird, but I am addicted to massages and spas. I am particularly fond of head massages. I ask a masseur to give me a head massage to test his/her skills. I was shooting for Dabanng at the Al Maha Desert Resort and Spa in Dubai, and had the most luxuriant head massage there — imagine a head massage with almond oil in the morning, coconut oil hair baths and then a fragrant neroli oil after pack-up. I felt so spoilt.
