Drashti Dhami turned 34 today and she is celebrating her birthday with husband, Neeraj Khemka and her industry friends including Nakuul Mehta, Jankee Parekh Mehta, Sharvari Marathe, among others. As per a BollywoodLife report, Drashti spent her afternoon with her friends and is going to ring in her evening and night with her family. In a few videos and pictures, from Drashti Dhami's birthday bash, which have surfaced online, we can see the Madhubala fame actress cutting her birthday cake, and Nakuul Mehta singing the birthday song for her. Others joined in and partied hard in the videos. Take a look:
For the uninitiated ones, it must be mentioned here that Drashti Dhami is married to her long-time businessman boyfriend, Neeraj Khemka since February 21, 2015. In a media interview, Drashti once shared that she loves cooking for her husband. She was quoted as saying, "I like cooking for him, but I don’t usually get time for it. It’s just that everyone in my house is on a diet, so there’s no point cooking. But yes, when I get time, I cook his favourite food items for him and he enjoys it."
Drashti Dhami and Neeraj Khemka's social media PDA is very low-profile. They do not share many photographs of each other online. Taking about the same, the 34-year-old actress told a media house, "It is not private. More than anything else, I don’t know how to make it more public. I don’t find a need, it is like a normal relationship which everyone shares with their better halves. Even Neeraj, he is a very camera-shy guy. When I tell him there will be media outside, he runs off, he never comes with me for events, he says “baby I don’t want to see the camera yaar. I get very conscious (laughs)."

Talking about how life has changed post-marriage, the Silsila Badalte Rishton Ka actress shared, "Life is the same even after marrying just like the way it was before that. Whether it was planning related to family or planning related to professional life, my life has not been troublesome ever. It’s only one complaint he always has from me. He says, “Whenever I plan something for you, you always get busy in household chores. I always find you cleaning one thing or the other.” Now tell what should I do in this?"
Drashti owes her success to her supportive boyfriend-turned-husband and her in-laws. Speaking reverently about them, she once revealed, "My in-laws are very supportive. Before marriage, while I was dating, I used to be really stressed out thinking that I had to spend time with family and meet Neeraj (husband). But now it’s a little relaxed because no matter what time I go back home, I get to spend time with him and his family. I meet my mom very often too."
She further added, "There are times I reach home late and if my father-in-law doesn’t meet me for three days, I get a message from him “Missing you, haven’t seen you for three days.” My mother-in-law loves me very much, whether it’s onscreen, offscreen or pulling her son’s hair (laughs). But my mom is very critical of me. I received a message from my mother, saying, ‘I am so proud of you and impressed that you have become such a good actress.’ This was the real compliment because she can really cribs about me (laughs)."
Drashti recently shared her New Year resolution with her fans during an interview with the Hindustan Times, and it seems fitness is her highest priority. She shared, "December mein bahut maze kiye hai (I had a blast in December) so now I have to burn off all the extra calories. It was also the wedding season and I attended as many as four weddings which were a lot of fun, especially as one of them was a sudden one."
