I don't understand the concept of celebrating only one day in a year for love. Valentine's Day, according to me, is a corny idea," says actor Sonakshi Sinha, who starts shooting for her second Bollywood project, the 3D film Joker, today in Chandigarh.
"If you love someone, won't you love the person all your life? I wonder why anyone would need one day in a year to express their feelings, or tell their partner that he or she is loved," says Sinha, admitting that she likes romance, but doesn't believe in the idea of sending red roses to someone on Valentine's Day alone.
"If I'm in love with someone, I'll love him regardless of the day, date and time. Romance is a timeless concept. My parents (Shatrughan and Poonam Sinha) are the ideal couple for me," smiles Sinha.
"They fell in love, got married, raised kids and sailed through so many ups and downs in life holding each other's hand. That's what I call love - unsaid but always felt. That's what one means when they say, 'I want to grow old with you.'"
Sinha has also weaned away her close gal pals from exchanging flowers and other presents on Valentine's Day.
"Thankfully, none of my friends indulge in these activities. It's clichéd. We all have our lives and relationships, but none of us believe in tomtoming about what we feel for someone," she says.
Has she too, like her parents, found her special someone who she wants to spend the rest of her life with?
"I'm blessed with lots of lovely friends. I can boast about having the most encouraging parents and protective brothers and some good work in hand. There's Kick and Race 2 and Joker. So, I guess, some things in life will have to wait for my attention," states Sinha, who bagged an award for Dabangg at the recently concluded Max Stardust Awards.
Joker, Kick and Race 2 will have Dabangg's 'ghagra-choli-clad (traditionally dressed) Rajjo' in an urban avatar.
Reportedly, her parents didn't quite appreciate her wearing skimpy clothes in films.
"I don't think wearing skimpy clothes and being urbane is the same thing," says the young actor, adding, "My parents also understand that. I'll wear contemporary Indian and western clothes depending on my character's requirements. I don't think anyone's parents would like to see their daughter showing skin in public."
