Aditya Roy Kapoor rings in 30th birthday on sets of ‘Fitoor’


Bollywood actor Aditya Roy Kapoor rang in his birthday on the sets of his upcoming film ‘Fitoor’. Born on November 16, 1985, Aditya turned 30 on Monday.

However, the ‘Ashiqui 2’ actor was not at all disappointed over working on his birthday as the day also marked the end of the movie’s schedule. Aditya had begun shooting for ‘Fitoor’ exactly a year ago. He gave the first shot of the movie on his 29th birthday and the last one as he turned 30.

His ‘Fitoor’ team also had a surprise for the actor who plays the lead role of ‘Noor’ in the film, just like they planned a surprise last year. “Like they did in 2014, the unit members have planned a little surprise for him on the sets again. Aditya is more than happy to spend his birthday on the sets as he loves what he does, and never treats it like work,” according to a source.  

The film’s director Abhishek Kapoor and the leading lady Katrina Kaif planned the surprise for Aditya. The actor preferred to keep the celebrations a hush-hush affair.

Aditya said, “It’s an emotional day for me. The journey of filming this movie is very close to my heart, so it’s a happy-sad feeling that it comes to an end on my birthday. As for my birthday plans, the celebrations will be with just a few close friends and family.”

Aditya who was last seen in 2014 film ‘Dawat-e-Ishq’ opposite Parineeti Chopra, is said to have multiple looks in ‘Fitoor’. The film has a fresh lead pair of Aditya and Katrina who reportedly plays a Pakistani character in the film once again after ‘Ek Tha Tiger’. Initially, veteran actress Rekha was also cast in the film, but she opted out making way for Tabu.

The film has been shot across Kashmir, Delhi and Mumbai. The last leg of its shooting was held in art galleries of Poland. Also starring Aditi Rao Hydari, Lara Dutta and Rahul Bhatt, the film is slated to released on February 12, 2016.
