Ammy Virk celebrates birthday in Goa, says ‘I have achieved a lot for my age’
In an exclusive interview, actor-singer Ammy Virk talks at length about turning a year old and celebrating his birthday.
Turning 30 is a milestone enough to be celebrated. However, for actor-singer Ammy Virk there are multiple reasons - his recent hit track, Bollywood debut and Punjabi blockbuster - to celebrate his birthday today. Virk celebrates his 30th on the beaches of Goa with his closed one. “The year was good. I was a part of big films, and also did some good projects back in Punjab,” he says.
Quite nonchalant about the number, Virk is rather ‘excited’ about turning 30. “I’m not nervous, just too excited. We will grow old, but I’m just trying to feel young. I believe that if one wants to work in the industry for a long time, they need to have the energy. So if I need to survive in the industry for the next 20 years, then I need to have the energy of a 20 year old. I continue to have that energy. I hope I continue to do the same, and hopefully God gives me courage,” Virk elaborates.
With 30, Virk is also at peace with his career. He shares, “Earlier I had to buy a house for my mom and dad, buy cars, and now everything is done. So now I just want to work for my creative satisfaction. I want to do good work. Abhi aaram se kaam karna hai and I need to give more time to my family. I have achieved a lot for my age. I started earning when I was 17. Mere tees saal acche gaye hai. And my mom and dad have always supported me.”
While he continues to believe that the audience’s love is the ‘biggest award’ he does have something else on his mind as well. “I do have Grammy, Coachella and Oscar on my mind. They do mean a lot and give you confidence,” he signs off.
