They might evade personal questions, but every Bollywood star has a pet topic that they can talk about for hours. We take a look at what some of our celebs love to blab about...
There are star interviews and then there are memorable star interviews.

Similarly, there are questions that stars don’t wish to entertain, but there are also some subjects that celebs hold close to their heart. These are their favourite subjects and understandably, celebs love talking about them to the point of being carried away by their passion.
hitlist takes a look at what some of our B-town stars love to blab about…
Last release: Gulaab Gang (2014)
Favourite topic: The evergreen actress is a delight to converse with, especially if she’s talking about her work but there’s something she’ll never forget to mention during media interactions: her dance academy. In fact, the dhak dhak girl can go on and on about it.
Shah Rukh Khan
Last release: Chennai Express (2013)
Favourite topic: Ask him one question and he’ll share with you some really interesting incidents and amusing anecdotes. Of course, he’ll make sure your question has been answered before he’s done talking. But he doesn’t need to be asked about his kids. The doting dad will mention them on his own.
Last release: Dedh Ishqiya (2014)
Favourite topic: The Gangs of Wasseypur actress has been facing many questions about her weight. Nowadays, there’s hardly an interview where she doesn’t talk about how she feels no need to appease her critics by going on a diet.
Last release: Madras Cafe (2013)
Favourite topic: One of the most articulate actor-producers around, he has had to vehemently defend his acting skills. However, left to him, he’d happily talk about his love for football and how he wants the sport to grow in India.
Last release: Krrish 3 (2013)
Favourite topic: He may be called Bollywood’s Greek god, but Hrithik Roshan’s health has seen good and bad days over the years. While he guards his private life fiercely, he has no qualms talking about how he battled an unhealthy lifestyle in order to become fit.
Last release: Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania (2014)
Favourite topic: With Internet memes created on a daily basis in her ‘honour’, it’s not surprising to see that the Student of the Year star is now cautious about what she says. These days, she never misses an opportunity to remind readers that she’s not as dumb as the jokes on social media suggest.
Last release: Dishkiyaoon (2014)
Favourite topic: As someone who is a mother, film producer, businesswoman and an occassional actress, Shilpa Shetty is often found talking like someone from the corporate world.
Last release: Bewakoofiyaan (2014)
Favourite topic: Sonam is one of the few Bollywood actresses who are active on social media and not just for the sake of promoting their films. Given her status as a fashionista, she is more than happy talking about style and glamour.
Last release: Heropanti (2014)
Favourite topic: In his Bollywood debut, Tiger impressed one and all with his stunts. Turns out that martial arts is his favourite subject and when he sits down to talk, it’s clear why this is so.
Last release: Bobby Jasoos (2014)
Favourite topic: Known for her woman-centric films, Vidya’s answers are often infused with humour. But it’s clear that the actress prefers to throw light on women’s issues; this is a cause that she feels strongly about and hence, he has not shied away from talking about the same at every opportunity.
Last release: Bombay Talkies (2014)
Favourite topic: There was a time when her love life was off-limits during media interviews. But that was before she got married to Aditya Chopra. Now, the newly married actress can neither stop discussing marital bliss nor her reclusive producer husband.
Last release: Bullett Raja (2013)
Favourite topic: This upcoming actor is known to be a student of martial arts. Which explains why he has a body to die for. The Commando actor seems to be more than happy to turn into a self-help guru even as he advocates self-defence for girls instead of relying on others.
There are actors who’d never talk about certain things, come what may. For instance, Ranbir Kapoor never talks about his love life.
The Barfi! star would rather keep the world guessing than clear the air about his private life.
