Ranbir Kapoor lets us in on his morning routine

Unlike Sid, who’s confused about what he wants to do with his life, Ranbir Kapoor was sure he always wanted to be an actor. Here, the actor who plays the title role in Ayan Mukerjee’s Wake up Sid shares a few common quirks with his character. Like Sid, Ranbir too loves to laze and sleep for long hours. We decided to ask him everything about his waking habits. Read on for sneak peek into the actor’s mornings…

What time you do usually wake up, when not working?
I don’t have a set time as such; I wake up depending on the time I have to work. I can sleep for six to seven hours, but given a choice I can sleep at a stretch for 20 hours. I totally love my sleep.

Do you get up right away or laze in bed?
I can’t wake up immediately. I end up having at least 15 minutes of snooze time before I wake up.

Who usually wakes you?
My alarm clock.

What does your alarm clock sound like?
I put the alarm on my cell phone as well as the clock. The sound is the usual ringing, but it’s loud enough to wake me up

How many times do you hit snooze on the alarm before you really get up?
I don’t know… but it happens a couple of times

Wash face first, or brush teeth first?
I brush my teeth first.

Do you leave your bathroom as you found it, or as if a tornado hit it?
I am quite a cleanliness freak, so I am very particular about how I use the washroom. Even if I have a quick shower, I never make a mess.

What do you do as soon as you wake up?
I brush my teeth, have a glass of juice, breakfast and then leave for work.

What does your breakfast usually consist of?
It consists of three egg whites, brown bread, protein shake and almonds.

Who makes your breakfast?
I have cook who does that.

Have you ever made breakfast for anyone?
Yes, when I was living in New York for three years, I would make breakfast for myself and friends.

Are you a morning person?
No, I am not!

What’s the first thing you do in the mornings, read papers, or watch news on TV?
I used to read the newspapers, but am scared these days to see what’s in the news. I usually read my scene for the day before I leave for the set. It helps me get ready for the shoot.

Who is the first person you say hello to in the morning?
It is usually my dad because he wakes up before me and goes for a morning walk.

Do you have any early morning dreams?
Yes, in fact, in the 15-minute snooze time I have dreams. Thankfully, I never had nightmares and sometimes, I have a deja vu of them when something similar to what I saw in my head comes true.

Are you a quiet sleeper?
No, am not. In fact, I snore a lot and even talk and walk  in my sleep.

Do you like to work out in the mornings?
I can never work out in the mornings. I like to do my weight training after I pack up in the night.

What’s a song you would like to listen in the morning hours?
I usually listen to the radio in my car on my way to work. I like the music they play in the mornings.
