We spoke at 2 am and yet, Shahid Kapoor was at his liveliest best, even at that late hour, ahead of his janamdin. The actor celebrates his 36th birthday today, had a pre-birthday bash last week and as is known, he won’t be in town. He will join his parents at his guru’s ashram in Amritsar, the Radhasoami Satsang Beas, with wife Mira and daughter Misha in tow. Over to the birthday boy as he shares facts about his birthday...
What are your plans for your birthday this year?
I’m going out of town. I will be spending the day with my family. Mira and Misha will be there with me. (Smiles)
Do you usually celebrate your birthdays?
Yes, of course. I love celebrating birthdays. It’s fun. At different times in life, I have celebrated it in different ways. But there’s always a cake and a lot of screaming, shouting and dancing around!
With Misha around, this will be your first birthday as a father...
Yes, but at least this year, I will still get to cut my birthday cake myself!
The best birthday gift you’ve received?
Actually, there are many... it’s difficult to choose one. I like personalised gifts more... that’s when people think of something attached or connected to you rather than just a piece of clothing or something. ALSO READ - 10 pics of birthday boy Shahid Kapoor that will make you say HOT DAMN
One particular that’s particularly unforgettable?
It wasn’t weird, actually. But I was a teenager and I was broke. So I was sitting at home, watching TV. Then I remember a couple of my friends came and took me out. They basically celebrated with me and spent money on me. It wasn’t weird but it was my weirdest birthday till the time my friends came because I had no money to go out and enjoy. That’s something I will remember.
Apart from family, on your birthday who would you like to be surrounded by?
People who I truly share a bond with. That’s most important. ALSO READ - Tommy Singh in Udta Punjab to Aditya in Jab We Met: 5 roles best essayed by Shahid Kapoor
