Yes, Vogue put up a rapid fire round middle of the shoot and the quirky couple was, of course, game for it! Check out the cool rapid fire here:
Coolest thing you’ve done at the shoot today:
Padukone: Eaten an entire chocolate dense loaf [from Theobroma Patisserie].
Singh: Busted out my special playlist. It was, however, collectively rejected.
Coolest thing in your wardrobe:
Singh: I have a collection of bunny slippers. The world’s only seen Sylvester the Cat so far, but I also have Scooby Doo, Superman, Tom and Jerry… there are more on the way.
An attribute that best defines India Cool:
Padukone: No matter how much we’ve progressed over the years, we’ve retained our culture and tradition. For me that’s the coolest attribute and it gets even more pronounced when I travel abroad.
Singh: The fact that we can remain rooted in tradition and yet evolve with the times.
Padukone: The one I was in!
Singh: That square with the alien face you get when there’s a formatting error and your phone doesn’t recognise the emoji. That, and the talking turd.
Coolest song to dance to:
Padukone: Hero by Mariah Carey. Not to dance to obviously… but it’s my all-time favourite.
Singh: Straight up psychedelic trance
Padukone: I’m not into superhero movies but I love cartoons. Tweety bird is my favourite.
Singh: I like our desi superheroes like Bahubali.
Coolest Indian(s) alive:
Padukone: Rahul Dravid and Narayan Murthy
Singh: It’s hard to single out one. But for a true-blue Hindi-movie fanatic like me, it’s Amitabh Bachchan.
Coolest movie you’ve seen this year:
Padukone: Still Alice
Padukone: Irrfan Khan
Singh: Hamish, the bullmastiff [from Dil Dhadakne Do]
Coolest set of wheels:
Singh: People should cycle more. But if I had to pick a car, it would have to be the Pagani Zonda.
Coolest game changers in Bollywood:
Padukone: Writers like Juhi Chaturvedi [she wrote Piku].
Singh: Aditya Chopra (“for his long-term vision”), AR Rahman (“for taking his talent to the global stage”), Aamir Khan (“for his ability to blend credible stories into a commercial cinematic format”) and, more recently, SS Rajamouli (“for elevating the level of visual-effects-led storytelling in Indian films”).
You would be truly cool if you could…
Singh: Create a lasting piece of cinema as a true auteur. That is, to make a film that I write, direct, act in, produce, compose music for and the works.

The biggest change you’ve made to prepare for a role:
Singh: To play Bajirao… the physicality, the accent, the bearing, everything is new and different from anything I’ve done before.
Coolest lie you’ve told the world:
Singh: Lying is not cool. That’s an oxymoron. But here’s one: “I did not cheat on my diet today.”
Who’s Daddy Cool?
Singh: Boney M and Anil Kapoor… Actually, no, Anil Kapoor is a teenage bachelor.
Padukone: My daddy!
Coolest way to beat the heat:
Padukone: Sweat it.
Padukone: I’m saying work out, he’s saying swim. He’s copying my answers.
Singh: Okay…drink lots of water. It’s important to stay hydrated.

Coolest Indian innovation:
Singh: The number zero.
Padukone: He should know. He failed in math.
Coolest idea you’ve ever had:
Singh: When I was a kid, I had this idea of becoming a mainstream Hindi film actor. And I followed it through.
Coolest dream you’ve had:
Singh: Just last night I dreamt that I was partying hard with Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
Padukone: I was in a battlefield, manning a tank.
Coolest bachelor party you’ve been to:
Singh: I’ve never been to one. Only one of my close friends is married and we were cheapskate buddies and didn’t throw him one. But I do get several requests to dance at bachelorette parties.
Padukone: He doesn’t even need to be asked.
Singh: No, really, they’ve very sincerely pursued my services. I’m surprised that me stripping down to my skivvies can mean so much to anyone.
Coolest thing you’ve done in a club:
Padukone: Had a cup of tea! I was with friends in a nightclub and they were drinking and dancing and I was sitting in a corner watching people— I love watching people—and having chai.
Singh: Hanging from a disco ball. Also, I’m always up for a good dance-off.
Your coolest secret:
Singh: My movie ideas.
Padukone: It’s not really a secret…I’m such a big fan of Woody Allen, I once tried staying at the same hotel as him, hoping I would bump into him!
Coolest birthday gift you’ve received:
Singh: A car, a vintage watch… but forget all that. Birthday sex beats everything.
Coolest word ever:
Aren’t the two of them just adorable! Can I take them home, please? 😛 😉
