It seems ostentatious birthdays celebrations are out. This year, Abhishek Bachchan, Preity Zinta, Urmila Matondkar and Aamir Khan are some of the stars who chose to spend a quiet birthday with family and friends.
Last week Rani Mukherjee had some of her close friends like Sanjay Bhansali and Karan Johar over for a quiet dinner at home to bring in her 29th birthday on 21st March. They dropped in unannounced to wish the popular actress.
On Friday another leading lady turned a year older. Of late Kangana Ranaut has been too much in the news...or so she feels.
"I've been written about for all the wrong reasons. Like the so-called three-movie deal with Yashraj Films. I never said anything about that to anyone. I don't know who's cooking up these stories which make me look compromised. So this birthday I really lay low. I called over my best friend Jaspreet from London and my sister Rangoli who was in Himachal. In the night I cut a cake with them. They gave me my gifts. In the morning I visited the Siddhivinayak temple and gave food to the poor. That's what my mother wanted me to do."
Everyone's talking about Kangana's kiss with Upen Patel in Shaka Laka Boom Boom. "It's not a kiss, just a peck on the lip. Suneel Darshanji felt it was required since my character has to make Bobby Deol's character jealous in the scene. Otherwise I don't want to kiss Upen or anybody on screen," protests Kangana.
