‘I call my horse Johnnie Walker’
For actor Randeep Hooda, who also owns Gurgaon Polo Club, Johnnie Walker is more than just a drink. “I have named one of my horses Johnnie Walker, because whenever I get on top of him, he walks around as if he’s having a rather good time. He’s dark, and whisky coloured, and has won me many medals,” says Hooda, who also enjoys the occasional Scotch with his father, at home, and sometimes even on sets. Rabbit Club of New York, and Glendale in Scotland are his favourite bars, and he has rather fond memories of the latter. “I am one of those idiots who went to Glendale Bar in Scotland, and asked a bartender ‘What’s your local drink?’ He looked at me, and said ‘Scotch!’ I was like ‘Oh, yes’,” recollects the actor.
