Asha Parekh to have grand 70th birthday bash
Bollywood Hungama - over 4 years
Yesteryear's Jubilee girl Asha Parekh has grown up. She is all set to turn 70 on October 2. The actress is planning a grand birthday bash at the Sun 'n' Sand where all her friends, well-wishers and colleagues from the film fraternity would gather to celebrate. But there's a problem. Asha Parekh's birthday happens to coincide with Mahatma Gandhi's birthday. And as we all know the Mahatma was anti-alcohol. In deference to the Mahatma allegiance to teetotalism, the powers-that-be have declared a non-alcohol day on October 2. Ashaji would have none of that alcoholic abstinence on her big day. She has therefore shifted her birthday bash by a day. Says the feisty forever-fun loving actress, "I've been planning my 70th birthday party for a while now. I don't host parties. The last time I had a bash was for my 60th birthday ten years ago. I want my friends and me to have full-on fun for my birthday. So I've shifted my party by a day because Oct 2 is 'dry' day in Maharashtra." Ashaji ma ...
