Director and actor Kabir Sadanand gives Shivaji a taste of cake!
lead Shivaji Satam's birthday... two days later! Red Box Caf, the new haunt for stars was the venue for the night. The Fireworks' party witnessed a restricted guest list. Supervising producer Yash Patnaik, director Kabir Sadanand, actors Anoop Soni, Dayanand Shetty were chatting away to glory keeping their glass at hand! Shweta Kawatra looked simple and sweet with her husband Manav Gohil sporting a hip white shirt.
Shruti Ulfat, the lead of Fireworks' now defunct Achanak - 37 Saal Baad, hogged the limelight in a mis-matched black outfit, obviously enjoying herself. Satam's birthday was brought in two days in advance as the unit was to start shooting the next day, leaving no time for festivities.
Writer cum film director Shriram Raghavan, an old Fireworks' friend, sans brother Sridhar, who's writing a few episodes of CID again, after a long break. Chetan Hansraj too made a late entry and when queried on his presence, said, "I did one episode with them, and so here I am," and continued to sip on his drink.
The most attractive part of the night was the cake cutting session. Shivaji shone all through!
Snippets of a chat with birthday guy Shivaji Satam…
How old are you today?
I turn 56 today! I feel totally young at heart (laughs). Don't feel old at all.
I have been very choosy about my roles. I don't know whether you can land a Vaastav kind of a role again on the big screen. In television too, one show is enough for me, as I like to have some freedom too.
We have never heard about your personal life…
I never like to talk about my personal life! But since you are asking me, I have two grown up sons.
What about your wife?
She is no more.
Your sons will follow your footsteps too?
(Laughs) Well, my elder son is an actor already and has won an international award. And my second son wants to be a designer!
What do we see you doing in your free time?
I love reading, I do that a lot. I also love listening to old music. And apart that, I love spending time with my two sons.
