Supernatural happenings generally creeps everyone out, what is that one incident which has left you sleepless and scared?
I was shooting for a film in Ramoji Film City for one and a half month in Hyderabad. Before I travelled for this shoot, I was told many haunted stories revolving around that area which built up a kind of fear in my mind. Because of this fearful thought, I always felt some unrest in my room leaving me sleepless for days. To get rid of this restlessness, I started listening to bhajans on television. However, instead of getting rid of the feeling, something happened which was even more strange – the television wire caught fire. Following this, at the end of our shoot, while walking back towards my car, I realised that in sync with my steps the street lights were flickering and I immediately ran towards my car, stepped in and just drove.

What is your fitness mantra? And how do you manage it with your busy shoot schedule?
