Says the actor, "Our whole gang of friends Lovely Singh and Kareena's hair stylist Pompi were there. She was busy shooting, so we could only hang around with her in the evenings but my purpose was just to chill and I did just that. Luckily, I managed to get two weeks off from the shooting of Hum Tum Aur Shabana, so I could make the most of it."
On a binge
Kapoor adds that after years he broke his strict diet and ate anything and everything. "I broke almost every rule... I binged on pizzas, pastas nachos and even rice at night. Though I am not a shopper, I shopped and raided most of the malls for food and outfits. I have eaten at every good restaurant in town Cheesecake Factory, Tao, Denise which is (the quintessential family restaurant open for 24 hours), Lavo and the Bellagio."
His saving grace was his yoga. "Payal, who is the yoga instructor to Kareena and me, was there. So every morning, I would do my yoga." He also relived his childhood by visiting an amusement park, "After 25 years, I sat on a rollercoaster. We also went to shows and musicals like the Chinese show Ka and French one, La Ve. I even went to the casino at Caesar's Palace but didn't gamble heavily."
The G3 actor had interesting experiences with many Indian families who loved his last release, "They loved my character and the movie so much that they insisted that I have lunch with them."
