What was the most romantic thing that a person has done for you? There were so many things actually. There was something special that my ex-girlfriend did. She had treated me on cruise where the whole upper deck was booked for just both of us. One of my other girl friends had gifted me a guitar because I play it and she has also cooked for me.
An embarrassing moment: That was when I was giving the auditions for Dance India Dance 2. I was giving my performance in front of the judges and the producers and unfortunately I was wearing a tight jean. I was supposed to dance for two and a half minutes but my jean tore in the first minute itself. I performed my piece and immediately after that all I had to do was to cover up myself.
