The day to express love for anyone you adore holds a special meaning in the lives of everyone. We speak to some television stars to find out what this day means to them...
Shama Sikandar : Honestly a day's celebration for LOVE is indeed a good thought. I am a complete believer in love and I celebrate everyday of my life with love and joy. But yes on Valentine's Day one can remember all the memories and have fun. I would love to celebrate my Valentine with my love where we can cherish everything we have in our life. I am waiting for Alex to come out with a surprise! Every year somehow I smell the surprise. And if I have to go with anyone on a Valentines day apart from Alex, it has to be actor Robert Downey Jr. who plays the intelligent Sherlock Homes. Because I love intelligent men, with whom I can just have endless conversations. Sometimes in silence also I get his company and feel so energetic and positive.
Puneet Sachdev : I used to celebrate Valentine's Day during my teen days. That time buying a card to planning a day for my love was a big event. But not now, I guess any day which is nicely spent with your love can be a Valentine's Day. But yes it used to be a grand day for me. I am a big Kareena Kapoor fan and I saw her before she became an actor. I read an article long time ago where I saw her for the first time and I was in love with her since then.
Rehman Khan : I have never celebrated Valentines Day. Not because I do not believe in it. Because anything which creates love and companionship gets my full faith and support. I am a married man and yes I often take my wife for dinner. If a day celebrating love falls on 14th February I see no harm in that. If I can ever take eternal beauty Madhubala with me that would be great. I can just look at her smile and pass my moments. A day with her means a lot forget about a celebration, every moment would be a celebration for me.
Arif Zakaria: With time I have looked back and scoffed at the heightened importance given to valentine's day. Earlier, much earlier it meant an expression of love to someone who brought, a strong chemical reaction called love, in you. But today it is a good day to rekindle feelings of love and joy with your loved one. You might laugh at the ritual and scoff at the day, but any day is a good day to tell someone you love them. I won't like to have any Bollywood actor as my valentine though there is a new entrant in my neighborhood who I would like to invite for a date.
Sargun Mehta: Valentines Day means spending romantic time which we don't spend otherwise. I would be shooting and rehearsing on the Valentines actually. I would want to spend all my Valentines with my boyfriend Ravi Dubey only. If I have to choose a Bollywood actor then it has to be SRK for sure. If he is not free then Ranbir Kapoor.
Mohammad Nazim: Valentines Day means expressing your feelings. It's a good excuse and occasion to express your love. Like everyone I would like to spend quality time with my girlfriend post my shooting time. The Bollywood actress I would like to be my Valentine is Kareena Kapoor because she is very beautiful.
Dipika Samson: It's a day of love. Your love for your mother, for your father, for your spouse, for every special person in your life. I don't have any special plans but yes I will definitely give some token gift to all the special people in my life. If I have to choose a Bollywood actor it has to be only Shah Rukh Khan.
Shashank Vyas: Valentine is a day to express your love to someone very special. But I feel for expressing love you don't need a particular day. My work is my love so I will be working but wishing every family member and expressing my love would complete my Valentines day. I would like to have Madhuri Dixit as my Valentine.
Sandeep Sachdev: Valentines Day means love to the fullest. It is a day when you make someone you love feel most special by going out of your way. It's a day when I don't go to gym and just love ice creams, drives, holding hands, sharing a smile and a kiss. I would like Preity Zinta to be my valentine as I have a crush on her.
