Cheil’s newly appointed digital head is one of those hit by the drone fever. He admittedly seeks out some ‘electrifying action’ through drones. He’s got the likes of DJI Phantom3, Parrot and Lily Drone cameras already, if you are familiar with that territory.
At work, it’s the usual Macbook Pro, tablet and smartphone that suffice. When he steps out of the work zone, it’s the smartphone that keeps him company. 
Denims with a T-shirt or shirts paired with sneakers is the standard attire. And that doesn’t change whether he’s working away in office or partying after work. Jack & Jones, Adidas, Nike and United Colours of Benetton are some of the outlets that he frequents often. For shoes though, there’s a singular favourite: Adidas Originals. 
His perfume shelf sports the likes of Bvlgari and Issey Miyake. 
He’s not among those who has stopped watching TV. His TV time is taken up by live sports, NatGeo, Discovery, lifestyle shows etc. And any movie that ‘defines the art of cinema’ is a must watch for him. Language isn’t a barrier here. 
Although ‘not much of a watch freak’, Kulkarni likes Tissot as a brand. His love for fitness is witnessed in his sporting a FitBit band. 
The car in his garage is a Mahindra XUV500, as he prefers hatchbacks and SUVs. The dream car? A Ferrari. 
Being close to nature is ‘fuel for soul’ for the creative, when it comes to holidays. It comes as no surprise then that he visited the panoramic Lahaul and Spiti Valley, for his last holiday. Next, he is planning a visit to the Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan for trekking and the pristine Alps for skiing.
On weekends, one can catch Kulkarni eating, drinking and watching sports – his ‘ideal relaxation’.
