Five songs on the ‘soundtrack’ of my life:
The Anthem Part 2 by Blink 182
How Far We’ve Come by Matchbox Twenty
Dhoom (from the film Dhoom)
Shake It Off by Taylor Swift
Lose Yourself by Eminem.

What I listen to when I’m happy and upbeat: Thunderstruck by ACDC
I’m really low: The Climb by Miley Cyrus
I’m working out: Any upbeat Bollywood dance song
