Valentine's Day I have an event in the evening. But after the event I will take Tahira for a very long drive and sing to her. I love singing to her. She is a very good judge of my voice as her father happens to be a polished singer."
Sushant Singh Rajput: "I was meant to be in Dubai promoting Kai Po Che. Ankita had agreed to accompany me. I'd have done my promotion while she would have gone shopping for both of us. But now with my leg injury I guess we'd just spend a quiet day at home."
