The source adds, "Vivek decided to something special for the cast and crew in return. He hosted a huge bash and everyone, from the producer to the spotboys, were invited. Apart from the great khana and B-Town songs, Vivek played bartender and served everyone drinks. The party rocked till early morning." Vivek says, "I was extremely touched by their gesture. I have been here for the last 45 days and have been missing my family like crazy.
I thought the gifts from the unit, including their love and best wishes, were some of the best birthday gifts I ever had. I threw a party for everyone on my birthday. I played the bartender. I got a crate of tequilas and was serving it to everyone. We all wanted to get high! It was the most amazing party but everyone's surprised that I was up shooting so bright and early at 7 am!"
Vivek's family also sent something special for him. He says, "I was amazed when I got this big brown paper envelope full of birthday greeting cards from my whole family and friends. They had compiled it and sent it to me so I would get it on my birthday. Even my two-and-a-half year old nephew Adi called to wish me. He can't say Happy Birthday properly so he says, 'Happy to you chachu' and then immediately asks me, 'Where's my cake?' " Vivek laughs.
Now that he's 31, Vivek says like all moms, his mother Vasundhara has started worrying about his marriage as well, "Ma tells me I should get married and settle down now and I tell her, 'when I find the right girl, I will get married.' Right now, I just want to concentrate on my career." The birthday boy concludes, "This year is going to be about doing good work. I want to make my dad proud of me. I know I made some mistakes when I started out but now I don't want any more controversies please! I just want to focus on my work and nothing else."
