When a celebrity is engaged with a charitable act, eyebrows are always raised. Brushing aside all possible speculations about her involvement with charity, Hansika who celebrates her birthday on Friday, says that it has been a way of life for her. “As a kid, I often went with my mom to orphanages to celebrate my birthday with the kids there. That has been a practise for me since I was five,” she adds.

Hansika says that her charitable activities are by no way any means of garnering publicity. “Seriously, what publicity am I going to get. These are activities I have been engaged with for a very long time.” However, ask her  why she has always kept a low profile about her charitable activities, she says, she doesn’t believe in getting publicity out of it. “That is why I usually don’t talk much about it,” she says.

Apart from adopting children in need of assistance, Hansika is also funding the medical treatment for cancer patients. Currently, she is meeting the financial requirements of 10 women, who are undergoing treatment for the disease, as an indication of her support for the pink campaign that raises awareness against breast cancer.

However, Hansika maintains that her ultimate dream is to open a huge old age home. “I don’t know when I will be able to complete the project, but I am sure I will do it sooner or later,” she says.

And, it is not like there aren’t other reasons to celebrate for the birthday girl, who is in Hyderbad shooting for her next project. “I am very happy with the work that is coming my way. Theeya Velai Seiyyanum Kumaru and Singam II have met with great response and I have a long list of films lined up this year. So, I can’t ask for more,” she signs off.
