In conversation with TellyBuzz, Shoaib shares his plans to celebrate his 26th birthday today...
What are your birthday plans for the day?
To make this birthday a special one, I've come to Bhopal at my home. So my plan for today is to be with my family and celebrate my birthday with them.
What gifts are you getting today?
My biggest gift today is my family itself and that I'm celebrating my birthday with all my loved ones. The feeling is priceless.
What is a perfect birthday according to you?
According to me, a perfect birthday is when you get to bring in the birthday with your family and really close friends and also spend quality time with them. I don't believe in huge parties.
Any childhood birthday memory you would like to share?
Childhood birthdays were really special for me. I remember going to my school with lots of chocolates. Each birthday my Papa used to buy me new birthday clothes. And the best of all, my Ammi preparing my favourite kheer for me.
Is there any birthday ritual that you follow?
There is no birthday ritual that I follow in particular, but yes I make it a point to be with my family on every birthday. Either they come to Mumbai or I go to my hometown Bhopal. My joy knows no bound.
How has your birthday celebration changed after becoming a star?
There is no change in the celebration. It's just that now I get wishes from thousands of well-wishers from all over the world. Since midnight, I've come across so many lovely posts on Facebook, e-mails, messages and more. To see so much of love makes me feel so special and blessed.
What is your message to your fans?
To all my fans, a big thank you to all for giving me so much of love and support to be what I am today. And I want to wish all my fans a very Happy Birthday for their respective coming birthdays!
We at TellyBuzz wish Shoaib a very Happy Birthday and a super rocking year ahead!
