'Rahul and Priyanka are absolutely great buddies'

What are his likes and dislikes?

He likes new technology. So he has his Blackberry, computers and all that, and he knows technology. To him technology is such a useful tool.

Is he a connoisseur of fine wines?

No, no. He doesn't drink wine at all. No wine, no beer, nothing. He's a teetotaller.

What about food? When you guys get together, are there any special cuisine you'll seek out?

He'll eat anything. He would prefer Indian food or whatever. But food is not an issue for him. It's like all of us who are world travellers -- food is never an issue. You eat Japanese, you eat Chinese, you eat Indian -- food is not a big issue.

He's not a vegetarian, is he?


Can you speak about his relationship with his sister Priyanka?

He has an extremely interesting relationship with his sister -- very personal, very friendly. They both get along so well and they really click. They talk 10 times a day -- very frequently. They are absolutely great buddies -- just great chemistry. I have seen them both together, and they are just great together.

Does he look to her for counselling, advice, moral support and that sort of thing?

It's a friendship -- not look up to, but it's a sharing thing.
