Bollywood actors and filmmakers are all set to welcome 2007 with a host of new resolutions. Some plan to work harder, others will go on a much-deserved holiday and there are a few who will focus on their family life.
Nisha Kothari, who plays Basanti in Ram Gopal Varma’s Sholay, says, “I hadn’t thought about it, but I think it is the right time to make one. In the New Year, I will trust myself, take decisions that will make me a better human being.”
Model-turned-actor Milind Soman will focus on family ties. He said, My resolution is to show my family that I love them. I will give all happiness to my wife and build a new house.
TV actress Vani Tripathi who made her big screen debut with Dil Se Pooch... Kidhar Jaana Hai, said, “This time, my New Year resolution is very introspective. 2006 has been the ‘Year of Justice’ for women.
In 2007, I will put myself in the witness box and question — how many times have I supported something that had a social relevance? In the New Year, I will not ignore any injustice and will try to protect the dignity of people around me. And there will be a conscious effort from my side to choose work that reflects my thoughts.”
Rubbishing rumours that he is set to tie the knot with Anupama VermA in 2007, Aryan Vaid said, “As such there are no plans for 2007. But I will improve my work and myself as a person. As far as marriage is concerned, it is a serious step in life and I would not like to comment upon it right now.” New item girl Sambhavna Seth said, “I will get up early in the morning and will focus more on my work.
I have quite a lot of item numbers lined up in 2007. Hence, I will work more than last year.” Ketaki Dave, who played Saif Ali Khan’s mother in Kal Ho Naa Ho, wants to be more active at work front.
She said, “I am interested in doing more movies and you need a push to improve your work. In order to push the envelope a little further, I will desert my laidback attitude towards work.”
Director Raj Kaushal is looking forward to a long break from work and said: For the last 10 years, I have been working on New Year so this time, my resolution is to take a break. After March, I am going to take a break and relax. Aditya Srivastava of CID fame said, I will concentrate more on my work. I will choose the best roles from what is being offered to me.”
Nigaar Khan, who is Barnali in Kasamh Se serial, says: “My resolution is to use my money intelligently and get rid of some of my bad habits.” Aman Verma, who plays Rishabh Lamba in Viraasat, attended a private party with close friends on New Year’s eve. “I plan to involve myself in other activities like kick boxing, and salsa next year,” he says.
