Many peo­ple plan their birth­day cel­e­bra­tions days and months in ad­vance. But ac­tor Diana Penty isn’t one of them. The ac­tor turns a year older to­day, and sur­pris­ingly, she says that she will make plans af­ter wak­ing up on her birth­day. “I don’t have any birth­day plans, nor am I one of those [peo­ple] who start a count­down like five days or a week be­fore. I am a chilled out per­son; I take life spon­ta­neously. So, I will de­cide what can be done once I wake up, But yes I will spend the day with my fam­ily for sure,” she says. Although Diana con­fesses that she isn’t a birth­day per­son, she never for­gets to take full ad­van­tage of her spe­cial day. “What I love the most is on that day, I can shirk away re­spon­si­bil­i­ties and get away with it. And I start en­joy­ing this free­dom a day ahead. So when my mum tells me ‘Diana do this or do that’, I tell her that I am not do­ing any­thing, it’s my birth­day to­mor­row,” she laughs. Diana shares her birth­day with ac­tor Shah Rukh Khan. “It’s like a birth­day thun­der stealer,” she jokes be­fore adding, “On a se­ri­ous note, it feels spe­cial when you share your birth­day with some­one as suc­cess­ful as him. And it in­spires and mo­ti­vates me to do well.” Tak­ing this op­por­tu­nity, Diana says she wants to wish SRK: “Happy Birth­day SRK! Wish­ing you good health, hap­pi­ness and lim­it­less suc­cess! Here’s to many more years of en­ter­tain­ing us!”

I don’t have any birth­day plans, nor am I one of those [peo­ple] who start a count­down a week be­fore. I take life spon­ta­neously DIANA PENTY, AC­TOR
