‘Men should smell like good whisky’


Do you believe in horoscopes?

I guess... I believe in astrology and numerology. It’s kind of similar, right?

Your go-to song to sing in the shower?

Right now it’s Down by Marian Hill.

If a girl made a pass at you..…

...I like it. It’s happened in the past. One girl in Mykonos just came and kissed me! My friends won’t stop teasing me about her.

Your go-to drink?

1942, which is a Tequila. It’s the best. I was also having a lot of sake in London.

What turns you off in a man?

If he tells me what to wear and what not to wear. 

One thing you’d never do in a film?

I don’t like it when they show that a girl is after the guy for his money. 

A man should smell like?

Woody... or like good Scotch whisky.

Favourite cartoon character?

Johnny Bravo.

Your spirit animal?

A lioness.

You sleep in?


A phrase or word that you use all the time?

Calm your t**s.

Your celebrity crush?

Tom Hardy.

Your favourite dessert?

Ras malai. I am not a very big dessert person but I like Indian sweets.

The last movie you watched and liked was...

The new Planet of the Apes. I quite enjoyed it.

If you had a slave for a day, what would you make him do?

Very easy... massage me all day. I’ll think I am very rich when I have a personal masseur. Someone who will be at my beck and call. Like imagine if someone was sitting under the table here and massaging my feet while I am talking to you!
