Valentine Musings: Bollywood's plans for the day

Mumbai, Feb 13 (IANS) In choosing a perfect Valentine's Day, celebrity-wishes vary from planning a long drive to singing to their sweetheart; from wishing for a society that understands power of love to treating women with respect.

This is what celebrities hope and wish for on Valentine's Day, which falls Feb 14:

Ayushmann Khurana: I don't believe I need one special day to make my wife Tahira feel special. To me, everyday with her is Valentine's Day. However, these days I hardly get time to spend with her. Even on Valentine's Day I have an event in the evening. But after the event I will take Tahira for a very long drive and sing to her. I love singing to her. She is a very good judge of my voice as her father happens to be a polished singer.

Sushant Singh Rajput: I was meant to be in Dubai promoting "Kai Po Che!". Ankita (Lokhande) had agreed to accompany me. I'd have done my promotion while she would have gone shopping for both of us. But now with my leg injury I guess we'd just spend a quiet day at home.

Honey Singh: I want to spend this Valentine with my girlfriend Sheena. Unfortunately, I am shooting a music video on that day. So here's what I'll do - I'll dedicate the song to Sheena. My secret Valentine's wish is that some day Rekhaji would be my Valentine.

Aftab Shivdasani: I'll spend Valentine's Day with my fiancee Nin. I'll do whatever she desires. Beyond that I really don't have any Valentine wish. Yeah, I pray for happiness and peace everyday.

Shiamak Davar: I am single and therefore lonely to that extent. But I've my mom and my pets and my dance company for company. My Valentine wish is to always be with my loved ones.

Arjun Rampal: I am spending Valentine's Day with Prakash Jha in Bhopal shooting for "Satyagrah". My wife Mehr might surprise me with a visit depending on how romantic she feels.

Urmila Matondkar: I am shooting my first Marathi film, so I've a working Valentine's Day. What better way to spend the day?

Shankar Mahadevan: For me, everyday is Valentine's Day as I strongly believe in love. I owe every moment of my happiness and life to my wife Sangeeta. Wiithout her even music doesn't make any sense. This Valentine's Day I wish human beings would understand the power of love and spend more energy on love than strife."

Shabana Azmi: I will be in Bhopal for the One Billion Rising campaign. We expect a crowd of 20,000 pledging zero tolerance for violence against women. It was initiated by Eve Enseler and has caught on like wildfire. My Valentine wish would be a society that treats women with respect and as equals.

Sunidhi Chauhan: You'd probably find this funny, but honestly, every day with my husband is Valentine's Day for me.

Sonu Sood: I'll be shooting in Hyderabad. So instead of my wife, I'll spend time with my unit guys. I wish I could be home at least once on Valentine's Day.

Kartik Tiwari: I wish I had a girlfriend. Being romantic at heart, I'd surely have done everything to make her happy. My secret Valentine wish is to spend the day next year on a yacht with someone special over a candlelight dinner. Come to think of it, I'd like to have Valentine's Day every month. In the absence of a girlfriend, I'd spend the day with my loved ones.

Aditi Rao Hydari: I'd be spending the day promoting "Murder 3" with Randeep Hooda. My Valentine wish is that my film becomes a super hit.

Kalki Koechlin: I have a Skype date with my husband Anurag Kashyap who is in the US for the release of his film. During the day, I'd be taking part in One Billion Rising.

Raveena Tandon: I don't really do Valentine's Day. For Anil (Thadani) and me, being home with the kids is the most romantic thing. This time we've friends over. I wish all husbands would respect and appreciate their wives each day and not just on Valentine's Day.

Ali Zafar: I will be performing with Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Preity Zinta in Muscat. Unfortunately, my wife can't be there since this is a work-related visit.
