Actor Neil Nitin Mukesh is known for his lean built and handsome looks.

The talented performer admits that he has some foodie weaknesses, but insists that he’s a healthy eater (mostly!). At a recent brunch event, CS did a rapid fire with him:


Eat right
Like many, I too had misconceptions about food and diet. Nowadays, I follow a fixed regime of six small meals in a day. It is very important to understand what kind of food you’re eating and at what time. I am lucky to be blessed with a good dietician who understands my body and its requirements.

Idea of a perfect brunch
I love tikkis, salads, assorted breads and some grilled chicken or steamed fish in a brunch meal. The idea is to have something substantial but not too heavy.

Staying natural
Throughout my life, I have stayed away from fad diets and such humbug. I believe that artificial things do more harm than good. So, whether it is cosmetic surgery or fat burners or steroids, I stay miles away from them at all times.

My weakness
I love chocolate. Once in a while, I can have an entire chocolate bar at one go.

Food destination
It has to be New York. The city has an amazing range of cuisine to tickle your taste buds. Even people with dietary restrictions can find a variety of dishes there.
