I have been in the in­dus­try for seven years and have never thrown a birth­day bash, and I am proud of it too. SHRENU PARIKH, AC­TOR

Ihaven’t been home since the past six months,” says birth­day girl Shrenu Parikh, who is pay­ing a fly­ing visit to Vado­dara, Gu­jarat. The Dil Bo­ley Oberoi ac­tor is thrilled about fi­nally get­ting to spend time with her fam­ily. She reached Vado­dara last morn­ing and plans to leave for Mum­bai at noon today, as she needs to shoot for her on­go­ing TV show in the evening. She says, “I do be­lieve that if you work on your birth­day, your new year will be fruit­ful and suc­cess­ful. I will spend time with my par­ents and my friends. I rarely get to spend time with friends as ev­ery­one is work­ing and they can’t visit Mum­bai.” “My birth­day is a good oc­ca­sion for a get-to­gether over din­ner. My younger brother is cur­rently in the US, so I will miss him.” The ac­tor tells us she likes cel­e­brat­ing birth­days in a sober man­ner. “I have never thrown a birth­day bash. I like to visit a tem­ple and meet my friends as I am not some­one who likes to party. I have been in the in­dus­try for seven years and have never thrown a birth­day bash and I am proud of it too. I used to teach street kids at an NGO, so I might go meet them and give presents and sweets. I feel good to do that. I am over­whelmed with the gifts show­ered by my fans and fam­ily. That makes it spe­cial.” Ask her is she is dat­ing any­one and Shrenu laughs. She says, “No. I am en­joy­ing work­ing right now. Once I get mar­ried, work will take a back seat. And I won’t date some­one, I will right away get mar­ried.” On the ca­reer front, Shrenu is glad that her show has earned her ac­co­lades. Her pre­vi­ous show, Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon?...Ek Baar Phir was suc­cess­ful too. “I feel I have grown over the years and that’s what mat­ters. Iss Pyaar Ko…is still be­ing ap­pre­ci­ated as it is air­ing on an­other chan­nel and do­ing very well. Though, I am am­bi­tious, I com­pete only with my­self. I am in the best phase of my life and en­joy­ing my work,” she says.
