Mahesh Bhupati Prefers 5-Star Luxury Stay Over Exploring A Destination

When asked if Lara Dutta and Mahesh Bhupati are travel compatible, Lara laughingly admits that while she is a neat freak, Mahesh is a messy packer. But they do like the same destinations. New York is one of their most favourite cities in the world, as they both lived there at the same time, even when they didn’t know each other. Lara Dutta is an adventure junkie who has gone bungee jumping, skiing and white water rafting. Interestingly, she says Mahesh Bhupati unlike her, is a 5-star snob who loves to check in to a luxurious hotel, sit in his AC room and look out at the sun. His idea of a holiday is to do nothing. While her holiday preference involves exploring a city on foot.
