Mumbai: ‘Kites’ actress Barbara Mori loves being in India. Ever since the Mexican beauty first visited India, Barbara is obsessed with agarbattis (incense sticks) and loves buying them.

Currently in the country to promote her latest film ‘Kites’, Barbara loves spending her free time shopping and sight-seeing with her brother Kintaro.

Talking to a news daily, a close source said, “Barbara Mori just freaks out on the scent of agarbattis...she always has some burning in her room. For the moment she’s staying at a service apartment in Juhu and her room is always fragrant with some exotic smells. She is almost obsessed with agarbattis.”

“She arrived in Mumbai on April 24 (Saturday) and that very day she took off for the market with her brother to shop for them. She has been shopping for different brands and types of agarbattis since then.”

“She’d gotten hooked on to them the last time she’d come to India and had her brother Kintaro couriering her agarbattis whenever he visited India. This time she has bought so many packets that she hopefully won’t need to replenish her stock for a long time.”
