I feel lost at Bollywood parties, that’s a different clan: Sonu Sood

Actor Sonu Sood turned 49 over the weekend and travelled back to Mumbai for professional commitments, including meeting people who came to the city to wish him on his birthday.

He said, “All this makes it a very special day for me. I have never met these people in my entire life. I saved many families, they come just to thank me. That keeps you smiling, that you must have done something right in your life. I am glad God is guiding us, there are miles to go but the journey is still on.”

Sonu added that he prefers to be around his loved ones, rather than throw a party for the industry people. He shared, “I don’t throw those parties, I am more of a home-body. I am not a party person, I feel a bit lost with so many people around there. A lot of people ask me to throw one, especially on birthdays, but I feel shy. It’s a different feeling. There are two phases of life- one where you are a kid and get really excited about birthdays, lot of attention around you. And now, when I feel stressed since there are so many people who want to meet me and there’s so much to do.”

Sonu doesn’t miss taking a potshot at the big fat Bollywood parties though. He said, “It’s always nice there, there are a lot of people around. I don’t know how many of them are genuinely excited for the one throwing though, they are there for the sake of it. Some are there genuinely, some just want to be seen, it’s sad. The day is all about your family and the loved ones around you, who you can connect with. These big fat parties, that’s a different clan, and with all due respect, they enjoy, they should do that. Maybe that’s not my cup of tea.”
