Bollywood actress Bipasha Basu chose to step into the New Year by expressing gratitude to her friends, family, staff and fans for standing by her always.
'Want to begin the Year 2012 by thanking all of you for the love and support over the years! You all are the reason I am 'Bipasha Basu'. Can't thank you all enough!' Bipasha posted on her Twitter page.
'Gratitude is the biggest virtue! Am also grateful to have the most amazing family and solid friends who make me who I am. Love them the most ever,' she added.
In 2011, the actress parted ways with John Abraham, whom she was dating since eight years. She also bagged her first international project 'Singularity', and is now looking forward to her multi-starrer project 'Players', releasing Friday.
Bipasha also thanked her team who work with her 'day and night'.
'I thank Pasha, my assistant, and Madhu, my hairstylist, they are my extended family! Can't function without them! Am very blessed to be me! It's a happy new year already for me!' she wrote.
Neil, a big fan of his mom
If actor Neil Nitin Mukesh had his way, he would want to be reborn as the son only of Nitin and Nishi Mukesh.
'It's my maa's happy birthday! I am truly blessed to be born as her son. I pray to god that all my lives I be born as her son only!' tweeted Neil, grandson of legendary singer Mukesh.
'The finest parents. And I'm not just saying it they are so emotional loving and caring. Proud to be their son. They have taught me great values and a lot of respect and how to truly love,' added the actor who began his Bollywood stint with 'Johnny Gaddaar' in 2007.
Anything for friendship, says Asin
'Friendship is like a see-saw. You don't mind going down to see your friend rise' -- and that's an adage that actress Asin Thottumkal seems to truly believe in.
While solving a fight between two friends for an episode of UTV Stars' 'Superstar Santa', Asin revealed how her close-knit gang of girls gets insecure sometimes due to her success in Bollywood.
The 'Ghajini' actress has a group of six to seven female friends, who are like daughters to her parents. As much as they are all close to each other, they get insecure that she can't meet them as often as they like due to her film commitments.
There have also been times when this has led to misunderstandings amongst them, but Asin says she has always made it a point to clarify the matter before it got out of hand.
She even admitted that she says 'sorry' though it may not be her fault, and that she she will continue to do so forever.
The episode of 'Superstar Santa', featuring Asin, will air Sunday.
