A movie that made you cry?

The Shawshank Redemption. A lame one that I cried for would be Because of Winn-Dixie

One thing you love and hate about India?

Everyone is so kind and it just feels like there is really good energy here. I hate the communication. A lot of stuff gets lost in translation

One thing you love and hate about the United States?

I love that you can always meet new and eclectic people. Something I hate is that the first thing that people ask you in Los Angeles is, ‘what do you do for a living?’ I don’t think that is the way you should get to know someone, based on what their profession is

A song that you are currently listening to on loop?

Paper Planes by M.I.A
