"How I wish that weekends would come twice in seven days? Weekends are the time that I enjoy the most. I used to be a regular at parties earlier but over the years, I have been spending more time with my loved ones at home.

On Fridays, I sometimes head out to see my singer-friend Rahul perform at Gilly's Restro Bar. If I'm home,I watch movies on Amazon Prime or Netflix. I am a movie buff and this is the only time I can catch up on all the movies that I missed out on.

Saturdays start really late for me. I stay comfortably tucked in bed till afternoon but once I'm up, I jump into action. I live with my mother and love spending time with her.

We share many common interests which helps us make plans together. When my cousins come over, we play board games like 'Business', 'Ludo' and 'Housie'. When outside, we hang out at malls and watch 3D films. I am a foodie and I love eating out.

Saturday is my 'binge day' and I enjoy anything tasty that I can get my hands on. Sometimes, I treat myself to 'Death By Chocolate' at Corner House and I don't mind going by myself for this. I enjoy cooking and I like to prepare varied vegetarian delights. Cooking is a very therapeutic experience and I indulge in it regularly.

I work out religiously from Sunday onwards and try my best to not miss the gym. I usually work out in a group. Workouts make me feel good from within and rejuvenate me. I also don't miss out on my yoga sessions.

Meeting my friend Sahana is an important part of the weekend agenda. She is a TV actor and we talk about everything under the sun. She guides me when I am lost or confused about a project. We share the love for food. From 'chaat' to 'biryani', we indulge in it all. I also try to meet my other industry and non-industry friends during the weekends.

I don't make rigid plans for Saturdays and Sundays. I love cricket and given a chance, I would play it any given time. I like playing with the boys from my area or sometimes even on the sets. I am a dog lover and often visit kennels. I love feeding and playing with them. If I am not in the city, I go out of the city with my boyfriend Sudarshan. We go to places like Goa, Mangaluru and Madikeri. I have recently started visiting holiday destinations abroad too.

If I had to sum it in a few words, a perfect weekend is being with loved ones, lazing around and munching hot 'pakodas'. After all, home is where the heart is."
