“The most beautiful place I have ever laid eyes on is Kashmir. I’ve been there thrice for the shooting of my film “Raazi,” and I can’t get enough of Dal Lake…every sunset on it is like a new canvas.

My son wanted to see the snow, so we took a holiday to Gulmarg. Just the drive up to it in winter is magical, with snow-covered treetops and winding roads— it is an ethereal setting. There is a botanical garden near Srinagar, which is beyond beautiful.

I’ve been to South Africa on vacation and that country is incredible, too, with every kind of landscape from mountains to ocean. But it is Kashmir that speaks to me.”
