For the past four years, actor Priya Bapat has been following one routine on her birthday that involves a workout in the morning. “I have never missed working out on my birthday for the past four years. And this is something I will start my day with this year too. It is a way of gifting myself a healthy and a fit body,” says Priya, who will be seen in Nachiket Samant’s Gacchi opposite Abhay Mahajan soon.
Recalling her birthday memories, she shares that birthdays in school and college were always spent with family and relatives at home. “As a child, I would be taken out for shopping on two occasions — birthdays and Diwali. Birthdays meant spending time with family, cousins and relatives. We would cut a cake and mom would make a traditional sweet of my choice,” says Priya, who makes it a point to meet her parents on her birthday and seek their blessings every year.
Another exciting and interesting part of Priya’s birthdays are Umesh’s excellent surprises. “It has been 12 years since I met Umesh and each year has been special. He always plans an extra special day and raises my expectations each year,” laughs Priya. She adds, “Umesh is excellent with surprises and I can never match up to his plans. I remember my first birthday with him. It was special because he accepted my proposal on that day. Then, on my 23rd birthday he gave me 23 gifts. On the birthday before our wedding, he gifted me a diamond ring.”
Priya is looking forward to this year as she starts shooting for an interesting project in October and expects Gacchi to release this year.
