I had a wonderful five-day trip to Berlin along with Sanjay (husband) and (co-star) Ferdous. But from the day I landed home (on Tuesday), it’s been only work, work and work....

Berlin wasn’t just a pleasure trip either. I inaugurated a Mexican restaurant there apart from shooting a music video for a Bangladeshi channel. But I did find the time to go around the city that is steeped in history. I had read a lot about Hitler and the Nazis as a student of history in college. And so the excitement was double!

Sanjay tagged along too because he had never been to Berlin. We stayed in the heart of Berlin at the Berlin Marriott Hotel in Potsdamer Platz. It’s one of the busiest places in Berlin and is right next to [a piece of] the Berlin Wall. I was very excited to see the Berlin Wall from so close. The only thing that I didn’t like was the biting cold!

Apart from work and going around town, I tasted fresh cheese, ham and sausages! I have put on a few kilos, but then the food was yummy and how much can one resist?!
