Raveena Tan­don, who turns 41 to­day, says birth­days have al­ways been spe­cial for her. “Noth­ing has re­ally changed over the years in that re­gard. My fam­ily and friends still love to cel­e­brate my birth­day for a whole week,” she says, laugh­ing. This year has not been dif­fer­ent. But Raveena ad­mits the cel­e­bra­tions on the D-Day will be low-key. “Nor­mally, my birth­day comes around Di­wali. Be­cause of that, the cel­e­bra­tions take place on a much larger scale, as the school hol­i­days be­gin by then, and there is a fes­tive vibe all around. How­ever, this year, af­ter a long time, Di­wali is so far off. So, my birth­day comes on a work­ing day,” says the ac­tor.

Nonethe­less, her day will be­gin with gifts from her chil­dren. “My kids (Rasha, 10, and Ran­bir­vard­han, 8) will give me hand­made presents that they’ve kept ready and have been hid­ing from me. So I’m ex­pect­ing them this morn­ing, since they’re not al­lowed to stay up till mid­night. I’ll end the day with a cozy din­ner with Anil (Thadani; hus­band and film dis­trib­u­tor),” she says, adding that she al­ready bought her present last week.

Mean­while, Raveena is also gear­ing up for the re­lease of her next film, and is busy with brand com­mit­ments. Ap­par­ently, there’s also a big re­al­ity show in the pipe­line, but Raveena doesn’t want to com­ment on it. “All in all, it looks like the year will end on a good note,” she says.
