New Delhi: City Express spoke to some of the newsmakers of 2011 about how they intend to celebrate the New Year and their big aspirations for 2012.
Actress Janani Iyer2011 was definitely a special year for me, as I made my debut as an actress. Before that, I was able to go out freely, as people wouldn't recognize me. So, on the professional front, I want to do more meaningful movies. This New Year, my friends and I had planned to go to Goa. However, I'm in Pollachi for a shoot and don't think I can make it. I hope to join them at least for the road trip that we have been planning for a while.Music Director G V PrakashNext year, there are quite a few things that I want to do. As I'm getting engaged next year, I'm planning a US trip with my family. Also, I've always wanted to attend the Cannes Film Festival and I hope that that wish will be fulfilled in 2012. I will be attending the premiere of my film, 'Gangs of Wasseypur'. Also, next year, I will be introduced to Bollywood.Actress Iniya2011 has been a great year for me. After the release of 'Vaagai Sooda Vaa', there is no looking back. So I'm hoping for an equally prosperous 2012. I generally don't have any bucket list, but I've always wanted to fl y in a helicopter and use a parachute. I always wanted to do a film where I play the role of a classical dancer.Actress Priya AnandI always make sure that I spend the New Year with my family. This year, I'm in Chennai and we are having a party in a beach house. This is the only time I will get to spend time with my loved ones. But there is one thing in my bucket list I want to spend my summers in the US. Also, I want to buy a puppy once my shoot is over.Actor JiivaI have signed quite a few films and there are some that are going to be released next year. However, I have always wanted to go on a long cruise. I have been planning it for the past two years and hope to fulfill this wish in 2012. Probably, I will do a 15 day cruise trip during the summer. For New Year, I'm planning to go to Europe, where I intend to celebrate my birthday.Actress SunainaThe moment someone mentions 2012, the first thing that comes to mind is the film. I hope that the world does not come to an end (laughs). On a serious note, I want my films 'Tirutanni' and 'Kadirvel' to hit screens. 'Tirutanni' is bound to release in January. I just want to do good films in this coming year.Actress Hansika MotwaniThis has been a very special year for me. That's because I have been chosen as the number one actress by Big FM. I don't have any special wishes per se. But then, this New Year will be a special occasion for me. I will be welcoming it with 20 children I've adopted. I intend to take them to a hill station called Lonavala to celebrate the New Year. As far as professional wishes are concerned, I intend to keep entertaining the masses as I did in 2011.Actor SuriyaThis year has been a phenomenally successful one for me. I will be hosting a show on television for the first time next year. It is something that is new for me and I hope it goes off well. Every time I come on screen, I have the responsibility of delivering something bigger and better than what I delivered last time. I am also working hard to live up to expectations. That is especially the case in 'Maatran', which is really challenging and which will be releasing in 2012.
