My fab­u­lous Fri­day

Fresh from his por­trayal of a vil­lain in Bol­ly­wood’s Rus­tom, the ac­tor talks of his real-life love for avi­a­tion and his plans to sky­dive in Dubai

Friday - - Up Close And Personal -

MY HERO For my Fifties’ era look, style and hairdo in Rus­tom, I was in­spired by a lot of ac­tors such as Clark Gable, James Dean and Dev Anand. But in real life my hero and idol is my dad. He was prob­a­bly the hum­blest, bravest and most pa­tient man. We lost him in a tragic ac­ci­dent. HOME AWAY FROM HOME Most of my Dubai trips are re­ally short, which is a shame be­cause it’s such a great place to shop, eat and gen­er­ally un­wind. It’s one of my favourite cities in the world – I’m ac­tu­ally plan­ning to buy a house in Dubai, and sky­div­ing here is on my agenda too. RUN FOR­REST, RUN A movie I watch when­ever I’ve got free time to spare, and never get bored of, is For­rest Gump. It moves me ev­ery time I see it. To me it’s a clas­sic, as is Vishal Bhardwaj’s Haider. I’ve lost count of the times I’ve seen it. My fam­ily lives in Delhi and I live in Mum­bai on my own. So as soon as I get some time off I fly to Delhi and spend time with my fam­ily – mum, my brother Yu­vraj and my grand­mum. I love be­ing pam­pered by them. When I’m in Delhi I love to go on long drives to the nearby state of Pun­jab with a few of my clos­est friends.
