Behind the scenes for the shoot

I shot this yesterday for NDTV Goodtimes. It will be telecast on 1st June at 8 pm. The show is about a subject who undergoes a transformation. She is taken to fitness person (me), designer, stylist, hairdresser, etc. It was shot in Shangri-la hotel pool and I made her do aqua aerobics. It took 4 hours in the heat to shoot this and I got burned and tanned. Do watch the show and give me your feedback.

My favourite hotels in Delhi

Delhi, the capital of India is one metropolitan, which every tourist has on their bucket list when they come to visit India.
Situated in Northern India, it is close to Rajasthan, Agra, Punjab and Haryana.
Delhi is known for its food, its cosmopolitan culture and variety of people that coexist here.
You can have street food or go for fine dining in five-star hotels. Tourists from diverse backgrounds come here. There are some who want to stay in budget hotels close to Paharganj. While others who prefer high-end swanky hotels, also have the options to choose between hotels like Taj Palace or Imperial Hotel Delhi. These are one of the best hotels in Delhi and also my top favourite. As the name suggests, The Imperial hotel has a very royal appeal to it. Taj Palace, which is on Sardar Patel Marg, is also not too far from central Delhi.
These hotels are well known for their hospitality, service, ambience and grandeur. But I have to confess that they are not budget friendly. In fact, they are exorbitant. But then they really spoil and pamper you. Sometimes it is good to indulge yourself and especially when you are travelling. I stay in Delhi and still enjoy my visits to these hotels. These are paradigmatic hotels with majestic properties. The imperial hotel property is elegant 1930’s property, which is a luxury at its best. It is reminiscent of the halcyon days of the Raj. A luxury hotel with an iconic and awe-inspiring heritage interwoven in colonial elegance, it dwells in its modern delivery of old-style class, magnificence and luxuries aplenty. Built in 1931 by Blomfield, one of Sir Edwin Lutyen’s associates and inaugurated by Lord Willingdon in 1936, it is New Delhi’s landmark Hotel, located on Janpath, the erstwhile Queensway. The Hotel is steps away from Connaught Place, the renowned shopping district and is very close to the city’s major attractions.
Quintessentially Indian in its fabric, Taj Palace, is recognised the world over for delivering a unique flavour of hospitality that offers world-class refinement while remaining deeply rooted in its local heritage. The luxurious Taj Palace, New Delhi, is spread out over six acres of lush gardens in the heart of India’s capital city. It is an oasis of calm while still being right in the middle of the city’s action. The hotel is a legendary food and wine connoisseur’s heaven. It is home to several multi-award-winning fine-dining restaurants specialising in Vietnamese, Continental-European and Indian cuisines. Alongside, they have a tea and coffee lounge serving the world's finest brews a multi-cuisine coffee shop.
Both these hotels have my favourite restaurants where I like to visit often. I can sit in their coffee shops for hours all by myself with a book.
I have attended some of the best weddings, events and parties here. They are my top favourite hotels in the city.

It was a delight to get a spa treatment done there. I felt so relaxed and rejuvenated. Their scrubs are made in-house and they believe in the philosophy that what is good to eat, is good to put on your body. So the scrubs are natural and free of all chemicals.
I personally met their loyal and happy customers who sang their praises. The staff was super courteous and the massage was one of the best I ever got. The price is not exceptionally high but I found it true value for money. I would highly recommend you to try it.
