One song you have on repeat on your iPod these days: I have many on repeat mode, honestly, but John Mayer’s album Continuum is constantly on.
If you had to put together a soundtrack for your life, four songs that best describe your life which would those be and why?
Dil Dhadakne Do from Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, since it really charges me; Kyun Na by Amit Trivedi, it has message I’d like to give people. Then there’s Single Ladies by Beyonce and That’s What I Like by Bruno Mars.
Is there a song you love to listen to when:
You’re happy and upbeat? Usually anything happy and upbeat. It’s usually songs by Bruno Mars.
You’re really low? Ghazals, or blues with a cup of coffee. I listen mainly to Ghulam Ali Sahab, Farida Khanum or Etta James
You’re working out? Bollywood songs, because that’s the time I get to prepare these songs for my shows.
How would you describe your taste in music?
I would say it is decent. My friends always love it when I decide the playlist for the night.
If you could have one band or musician in the world perform a private concert for you, which one/who would it be?
Which is the one live act you would love to see at least once in your life?
I wish I had seen Michael Jackson. I think I’m going to take this to my grave.
