What is your idea of perfect happiness?
Perfect happiness is contentment within you, which comes from self-acceptance. If you’re truly able to be at one with your soul, able to forgive others and come to the realisation that love actually is the answer, that for me is perfect happiness.
What is your greatest fear?
Losing the people I love.
What is the trait you most deplore in yourself?
I wish I could sometimes hold back instead of being so impulsive!
What is the trait you most deplore in others?
People who lie... I hate liars. They ruin their image and then it’s really hard to repair.
What is your greatest extravagance?
I wish I could say my car but I still don’t have a license and rely on a driver which is shameful! So I’ll say my shoe collection. At first I was in denial, but now I’ve come to accept that I am obsessed with shoes!
What is your current state of mind?
Tranquil. I’ve just done yoga and listened to music from the garden of Zen. I am in my zone.
What do you consider the most overrated virtue?
Honesty is an overrated virtue simply because it’s always blown out of proportion. We make such a big deal about it. As human beings it’s our moral duty to be honest; it’s not an option.
What is the quality you most like in a man?
Honesty. An honest man is a confident man who isn’t afraid to say what he thinks because he is that comfortable with himself.
On what occasion do you lie?
I only lie when I feel the truth is going to hurt somebody.
What do you most dislike about your appearance?
Nothing at all. I’m grateful for having a healthy body and appearance and wouldn’t change a thing.
What is the quality you most like in a woman?
The maternal love that a man can never understand.

Oh my gosh! Do you know what I mean? Yeah? LOL!
What do you consider your greatest achievement?
Being a goodwill ambassador for the Red Cross.
If you were to die and come back as a person or a thing, what would it be?
Where would you most like to live?
In NYC. It is hands down the best place on earth!
What is your most treasured possession?
All of my journals. I’ve been writing in a diary since I was eight and I have every single one to date.
If you didn’t do your current job, what would you choose to do?
I would be a belly dancer.
Who is your hero of fiction?
Jonny Bravo. He knows he’s hot and doesn’t realise or even care about the people around him!
Which historical figure do you most identify with?
Anne Frank. Sometimes I feel completely alone and abandoned when surrounded by people.
Who are your heroes in real life?
My parents. They have taught me everything I know and made me into a strong-willed individual with good ethics and morals.
What’s your favorite quote?
“Fight for your dreams.’’
How many hours of loadshedding did you experience yesterday?
None! It doesn’t happen in England. But when in Pakistan — yay for generators!
