Talking additional about her plans for the day, the Alone (2015) actor says, there’ll no social gathering as such. “It will be very simple, with my mum, dad, and food. I am a foodie, all my favourite specialties will be made by mom. I will miss all my friends and my birthday holidays which I love.”
The actor provides that “this will be the second year in a row” that she has not celebrated her birthday.
“Last year, Karan got Covid and was stuck in Serbia. Our plans to go for New Year’s and my birthday got cancelled. I am grateful that this year my entire family is healthy, all happy,” she ends.
