Dur­ing the week­ends I love kick­ing back and watch­ing movies with my son. Mughal-EAzam is that one movie I can watch over and over again. Also the mu­sic in it is bril­liantly com­posed, with ev­ery word hav­ing mean­ing to it. THE WRITE WAY I don’t re­ally get a chance to read now. But when I do, I read a lot of philo­soph­i­cal Hindi-Urdu lit­er­a­ture by Mun­shi Prem­c­hand; po­etry by Pun­jabi poet Bulleh Shah, Sufi poet Amir Khusro and the 15th-cen­tury In­dian poet Kabir. Other than mu­sic, I’m very pas­sion­ate about writ­ing. SOUL FOOD I love sim­ple, home­cooked food. I also love to cook for my fam­ily. When­ever I get the time you’ll find me in the kitchen pre­par­ing my sig­na­ture dishes – aloo jeera (pota­toes sautéed with cumin) and masala bhindi (spicy okra).
