One song that you listen to on repeat mode on your iPod these days: Nothing specific, really. I listen to music according to my mood. But, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil playlist is all gold.
Is there a song you love to listen to when:
You’re happy and upbeat: Adventures of Life by Coldplay
You’re really low: Hello by Adele and Christina Perri’s Jar of Hearts
You’re working out: A complete Bollywood soundtrack — any Vishal Dadlani or Shankar Mahadevan song that gets my blood boiling
How would you describe your taste in music: I have a mixed taste — I don’t really differentiate in music. There is no rich or poor music for me.
Five songs in the soundtrack of your life: Love you Zindagi, Can’t Stop the Feeling by Justin Timberlake, Aayat from the soundtrack of Bajirao Mastani, Nindiya by Arijit Singh and Udi Udi Jaye Dil ki Patang.
Your favourite time/way to listen to music during the day: All day long! Music is always playing in the background regardless of what I’m doing. In the mornings, I like to listen to peppy music; afternoons are for sufi and my evenings are reserved for Rafi saab or Dev Anand music.
Is there any music you used to love as a kid or a teenager that you’re now embarrassed by when you think back? No music choice is ever embarrassing for me.
One band/musician you want a private concert from: Arijit Singh or Vishal Bhardwaj
One live act you would love to see at least once in your life: Papon — he’s my favourite singer.
