Eijaz Khan celebrated his 46th birthday in the lap of nature on Saturday. His day was made even more special by Pavitra Punia, who is his girlfriend. Away from city's hustle, PaviJaz are spending some quality time amidst nature. Talking about celebrating his 46th brthday, Eijaz told in a statement that Pavitra planned a surprise for him.
"I turned 46...wow! Turning 40 was a milestone, and now I am on the other side of 45, I should be older and wiser. But, I think I am going in the opposite direction," he laughed before adding, "Pavitra had a surprise planned for me. We are in Coorg in the natural surroundings. I love to connect with nature."
The Bigg Boss 14 contestant added that he gets uncomfortable with all the attention he gets on birthdays. "As in ‘Ohhh today is birthday’ I have to do something special, I have to stand out, I have to do something outstanding etc… when I am compelled to do something it kind of puts me off, if things happen naturally I like it more. This is the first birthday that I will be spending with Pavitra, so I am looking forward to it. I don’t know, maybe we will be travelling, we may go to a forest reserve or we can go camping, things have opened up. I generally take bike rides on my birthdays and have gone for many solo trips with my friends. This time I still don’t know what I am doing."
Remembering his fondest birthday memories from childhood, Eijaz shared, "I remember we used to visit a photo studio before the birthday party so that we have a photo clicked on the occasion. A lot of powder used be put on my face and they made me stand in front of the camera and take a picture. It was fun. We would get new clothes during birthdays and I used to be very excited about that gift. I remember one time I got Power sports shoes and it was a huge deal back then."
So has the meaning of birthday changed post 40 for Eijaz? He quickly added, "As much as we say age is just a number, I think when you get older, you sort of tell yourself to pause, reflect, figure out what is the real meaning of life and pursue the same that because I think we are done with the mistakes that we did when we are younger, we are done with figuring ourselves now know our shortcoming, and our positives too. I now think of making everyday matters and taking more risks. I think these are the things that have changed for me."
He signed off saying, "I think stagnation comes when we become a little more sensible. Having said that I keep making mistakes, I am still learning. I will always be a student. I am still on the move."
