Even amid chock-a-block sched­ules, one can squeeze in some time for birth­day cel­e­bra­tions, right? Priyanka Cho­pra had a work­ing birth­day (July 18). But not with­out a party, she says, speak­ing to us from New York, USA, where she had been work­ing non-stop since five in the morn­ing.

“I had an in­sane week­end. My mum, my brother and some of my friends are here (for my birth­day). The cast of my TV show (Quan­tico; Amer­i­can se­ries) also joined in for the party. I never have par­ties for my birth­day. Last year, my mum threw a sur­prise bash. This year, my friends did, though it wasn’t a sur­prise,” says PeeCee.

Is it tough to buy gifts for some­one like her? “(Laughs) no, thought­ful gifts are al­ways wel­come. Most of my friends know that about me. Like a friend gave me caviar and potato chips, as they know I love them. I got such sweet, thought­ful gifts,” says the ac­tor, who posted a pic­ture (in­set) on In­sta­gram, show­ing

just how many birth­day presents she was show­ered with.

“Feels like xmas morn­ing.. But it’s birth­day night. Thank you all.. I feel very loved... Even af­ter a 16 hour day on set I feel so blessed and grate­ful. Here’s to ev­ery­one who loves me and sup­ports me. I am be­cause of you. #blessed (sic),” wrote Priyanka, who likes to treat her birth­day as any other day. “For me, it’s just another day. But peo­ple who love me re­mind me that they care about me on this day. It feels good to be loved and cared about,” she says.
