A week-long birthday bash for Raveena
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.
