amri"I'm going to just stand there and if I am required to smile, I'll assume that I've just scored a good 100. If I have to pose with Amu, I'll think she's a bat. But she's anything but a bat!". Excerpts from an interview:

Long distance relationships?

Amrita: are not easy, neither too difficult

Usman: survive on trust, no insecurities and a lot of respect for the other

Your lovey-dovey pet names?

Amrita: He calls me Puppy

Usman: She calls me chikna only because she thinks I've got good skin!

On a scale of 1 to 10

Amrita: I'd give him a 9/10 for his cricketing abilities. He plays a lovely game, but should focus more on his bowling. He plays a lot of County matches, and should make it to the England team soon.

Usman: I'd give her a 7/10 as an actress.

Worst habits

Amrita: He's too laid back. The sky could be falling, but he won't be moved.

Usman: She's too fidgety. But I find that kind of cute!

The sexiest actress/cricketer?

Amrita: Mitchell Johnson from Australia is the sexiest cricketer.

Usman: Aishwarya Rai is sexy. Also Malaika Arora Khan. Arbaaz is a lucky man.

Best Assets

Amrita: His sexy bedroom eyes

Usman: Her eyes, smile and hair

When someone ogles at your better half

Amrita: I take it as a compliment

Usman: There would be a problem if men didn't look at Amu. I'd wonder: Who the hell am I dating?!

The song you'd like to dedicate to each other

Amrita: Enrique's 'If I could be your hero baby' make that 'heroine baby'!

Usman: I am into R&B music but then the title of any song is going to sound so crude. Imagine if I said 'Get It On The Floor' So I'll stick to 'Stand by me'

Your first acting stint together

Amrita: has made me realise how tall Usman is.

Usman: has made me realise how easy the bat is. I'm most at home on the cricket field.
