New Years’s Eve
brings in a lot of excitement and cheer. Our TV actors share with us their New
Year plans, the craziest thing that they have done on a New Year, and even
New Year's for me is spending time with my family. I am passing the light of peace love and prosperity to my fans for the year 2018. Kindly pass it on to the people you care about.
This time I want to do something productive for New Year's. I don't want to go any party and get drunk. I have planned a trip with my friends where we will be camping, night trekking and mountain climbing. There is a place called Temgarh near Lavasa. I will be going there. So a beautiful drive, then camping, bonfire, amidst mountains with no network is how I will be celebrating New Year's.
Whenever I make plans, things don’t go the way I want. So I am not making any plans. On 31st, I will be near food and desserts, that is all that I know. The only thing I will do is--- not turning crazy while the whole world is going crazy.
My plan for New Year's is very simple. I recently got married and it will be our first New Year's as a married couple. We will spend time with our families. But the very next day after New Year's, we will go to the Iskcon temple (Juhu) to seek blessings and pray for a good start.
My New Year plan is to stay fit, be more focused towards work, achieve the targets which have not been achieved in 2017, and of course 2018 should go more happening than the last year. I will also take out some special time for myself this year. I am celebrating this New Year's with my friends. We are thinking of doing a house party at one of my friend’s place or mine, we haven’t decided pucca as of now though. 2017 has been a great year and we all have completed it with grace and safety, toh haan party to banti hai.
This year I am shooting on New Year’s Eve, so after pack up it would be a dinner with close friends.
I am in Mumbai only and would be spending some quality time with my awesome friends. I would also do some introspection and have my "Me time" and plan to my next move in my career and life.
We will have a family get-together on 31st with some good food and music. Then on January 1, we will start our day by going to Siddhi Vinayak and Mahalaxmi Temple. The craziest thing that I have done on New Year’s Eve is to book an entire Yacht in Goa for Tina. It was spectacular in the moonlight with only Tina and me in middle of the sea.
I am going to Goa with my gang of friends. We will party with our families.

This year, we would be partying at home with our babies. The craziest that I can remember is during college days when a bunch of us partied all night from one place to another, until the next morning when we ended up at India gate.
Festivity is incomplete without family, so I always prefer to stay a bit low on 31st and spend some quality time with the people who matter the most. We rather prefer to visit Gurudwara Sahib with the whole family and ask for happiness and peace on the first day of the year. I might spend the 31st evening with close friends, if I am in Mumbai- but it will be relatively quiet.
I am partying in Goa since December 16. And I shall remain till January 1, 2018, ast least. It's so much fun here.
I don’t like to go out on New Year's Eve. I stay at home and eat yummy home cooked food and watch TV with my family. We start doing the entire countdown when we are 10 seconds away from midnight- and that's so much fun!
I will be at home spending it with my family and friends and we will mostly have a house party. It’s cozy and safe. I remember 2 years back on the 31st, I started partying at 7 pm in the evening and till 7 am in the morning, I had gone in 5 parties. Even the next day, my friends and I partied like hell.
This New Year's, my plan includes throwing a potluck with some of my close friends and their families. We will be playing fun games like Dumb Charades and later head straight to watch fireworks at Marine Drive. Singing my heart out at a karaoke bar is the craziest thing I did a couple of years back. It’s great fun. Honestly, I feel way more productive that way rather than spending the night tipsy and wobbling around in heels. I have no inclination to go out on New Year's Eve, drinking and having to take care of drunk friends. In the days ahead in 2018, I plan to learn something new- be it a new sport or a trendy new exercise.
This New Year's, I’ll be in Dubai with my parents. It has been a while since I spent my New Year's night with them. So this time, I guess, I will be with them for a nice quiet dinner.
