When it comes to birthdays, Bollywood celebs are used to being flooded with wishes from all over the world. And Urmila Matondkar, who celebrates her birthday today, is no different. But there is one person whose message she always looks forward to on this day — Amitabh Bachchan!
Elaborating on it, she says, “Mr Bachchan not only wishes me on my birthday every year, but is, in fact, always the first person to do so. Whether I am in India or abroad, he never fails to send across a warm message on the day. Hats off to him, it’s amazing to receive this love and respect from someone who is a legend himself.” She shares, “Last year, I got pulled up by him. He asked me, ‘Oh your number is the same? Because you didn’t reply to my message’. It took me by surprise as who would not reply to Mr Bachchan? (laughs!) So, you see, once in a while he pulls a fast one on you.”
Talking about her plans for the day, the actress reveals, “My parents have always ensured that my elder brother and I did some charity work on our birthdays. And I plan to continue that. We have never cut cakes or hosted lavish parties. When I became an actress, being the private person that I am, I would shy away from cutting cakes on sets.” She also plans to visit an orphanage and an old age home today.
Urmila is also looking forward to hosting her first live interaction on social media. She says, “I have never done these live interactions before, so I am looking forward to it. I am one actor who’s quite slow on social media. It’s my husband (Mohsin Akhtar Mir) who pushed me to get active on social media to interact with my fans and well-wishers.”
