Mumbai, Dec. 9 -- Veteran actor Shatrughan Sinha turns 70 today (December 9). His daughter, Sonakshi Sinha, says that her father loves to celebrate the day with his friends and relatives.

"He's a person who enjoys being surrounded by people who love him. So, for a special occasion like his birthday, he usually has a gathering comprising people who have known him for years, along with his new friends as well."

This year, to celebrate his birthday, the family is going on a vacation to the Kerala backwaters. In fact, Sonakshi has planned every detail of the holiday herself. "We are taking him for a quick trip. We have planned an entire day on a cruise, and are hoping he will enjoy it," she says. Even as a child, the Dabangg (2010) star looked forward to her father's birthdays, and enjoyed making handmade gifts for him. "I would always make something for him, like a pop-up card, or I would write a poem on a chart paper.

Last year, I gifted him a Mercedes. But, somehow, I never enjoy giving him material presents. I feel that memories last longer, and I hope he loves the beautiful experience that we have planned for him," says the actor. While she remembers all her father's birthdays, there is a special one that Sonakshi holds close to her heart. "I remember celebrating one special birthday in New York, USA, when I was a child. Our entire family was together, and that was also the first time I saw snow. That birthday is imprinted in my memory," she says.
