"Well, my brother will be in town this time. So, it will be a family get-together. There is no big party planned as such. In the morning I will be at Yash Raj for the launch of a song from 'Kill Dil'. I've requested the 'Kill Dil' team to let me go before afternoon, so I can spend the rest of the day with my parents and brother," she said.

A few months back, the birthday girl gifted herself her a car - a Jaguar.

"I also bought a car for my parents. That really made me happy. Next on my wish list is a house. I'm saving up to buy my own place," said Parineeti.

However, material things are not the top priority on her birthday wish list.

"What I really want for my birthday is good health for my loved ones. We are what we are because of the people in our lives. What would I be without my family and close friends?" asked the cousin of actress Priyanka Chopra.

Parineeti confesses she is big on birthdays. "I've always been a birthday girl. I count the weeks and days before my birthday. And if someone close to me forgets my birthday, I am heartbroken. I also love the cake. I can't have enough of it," she said.

And what about that special someone in her life?"It isn't as if I don't want love to happen. I am waiting for it. I am not one of those actresses who says she has no time for love. I firmly believe a personal and professional life are meant to move on parallel tracks."

"So, I am ready for love whenever it is ready for me. And it can be anyone, including someone from the film industry. I don't believe I shouldn't fall in love with someone from the film industry. If and when it happens, how can I decide where love will come from?" she said.
