What’s the last movie you saw?

“It was ‘We’re The Millers.’ It’s about smuggling and it stars Jennifer Aniston. It’s a funny movie, and it’s pretty good.”

What is your hobby?

“Playing cricket. It’s not difficult. It’s like baseball, but the ball is harder and they throw it around 140 mph. It is hard to hit the ball. I grew up playing in India. Everybody there plays cricket.”

What is your prized possession?

“I’d say my wife and our two kids. Our son is 11 and our daughter is 6 months old. It’s more difficult because my wife is working full time now. Our son is very excited and he helps out.”

What do you like about Chicago Ridge?

“There are pretty cool people around here. We have good chit-chat and everything. Friendly people.”

Which person from history do you want to meet?

“Shahrukh Kahn. He’s a big star in Bollywood. I like him because his acting is good. He’s pretty cool. He has a jolly nature. Action movies are pretty good for him. I’d ask about his movies. There are so many movies made in India.”
