Who do you miss the most on your birthdays?
Birthdays are really just like any other day, but I miss my parents dearly.
Tell us about any birthday surprises that you received in the past from your children.
I have a son and a daughter. They surprise me at midnight with a cake, which we cut together as a family. They are always the first to wish me, which makes me happy.
How do you feel about turning 51?
Life is beautiful, and it is a gift to be alive. I live for this society, people, the country, and my family. Even after I am long gone, I would like to be remembered as someone who strove to do good work.
How was your experience working in your first ever Kolkata venture?
The film is titled Sitara, and we have recently completed its shooting. The story is adapted from Bhorer Proshuti by Abul Bashar. It is a wonderful piece of work, and I cannot wait for its release.
