Before you knew it, another year has passed! Finally the roller coaster that the year 2016 was has come to an end, and the much-awaited 2017 has arrived, bringing along with it a chance for everyone to start afresh and breathe life into a promising new year. It is popularly believed that what we choose to do on the first day of the year is an indicator of how the rest of it will go. Looking forward to a new start, our stars have decided to shed the baggage of the previous year and mark a new beginning of an eventful year.

Sunny Leone
What are you going to do on the first day of 2017?
I’ll be working on the first day of the year, which is exactly how I wanted to start my year. I know it might not sound fun, but I love that I'm working. I have an appearance set for today.

 

Three things that you wanted to happen in 2016, which did not happen?
I don’t look at my life this way. I’m very pleased with everything that I did in 2016. I always try and focus on what I did than what I did not. I had the most amazing year and when things were bad, I learnt from the bad. If I made mistakes I learned from my mistakes too.

In 2017, what is that one thing that you would like to give up?
I would like to give up coffee completely. Not sure if that’s possible, but I’ll try.

What's on your travel list this year?
Well, I know I am going on a family vacation with my in-laws to Mexico. I’m very
excited about it.

 

Three things you wish to accomplish this year?
I would like to have more patience and would want to spend more time with my family. I also want to see my cosmetic line-up do well, and work on projects that are meaningful to me.

What is your New Year resolution?
I usually don’t make resolutions but I would definitely like to spread more awareness for animal rights.

Sharman Joshi
What are you going to do on the first day of 2017?
I’m going to sleep and meet my friends later and spend some time with my family. I may be shooting too.

What’s your hangover mantra?
I barely get a hangover. I drink only to keep company, not otherwise.

Three things that you wanted to happen in 2016, which did not happen?
Honestly, I’ve had a fairly good year, more so than what I had expected or wanted, so I cannot complain but I surely want more from 2017.

One thing that you would like to give up in 2017?
I’d like to give up a few of my lazy ways, and would want to be more social.

What's on your travel list this year?
I want to visit Turkey, China, Swiss Alps and many more places.

What do you wish to accomplish this year?
More hit films, more plays and more fan love.

Kalki Koechlin
What are you going to do on the first day of 2017?
I'm going to sleep in the sun.

 

Three things that you wanted to happen in 2016, which did not happen?
Decriminalising homosexuality, being disciplined enough to write without a deadline, and despite it being a regular monthly occurrence I never end up having a pad handy when I get my period.

In 2017, what is that one thing that you would like to give up?
Non-vegetarian food.

What's on your travel list this year?
Unplanned, spontaneous trips.

Three things you wish to accomplish this year?
I want to do a new stage performance of some kind, find a way to make feminism less misunderstood and figure out the difference between  hai and hain.

 

Neha Dhupia
What are you going to do on the first day of 2017?
The first and most important thing is to go out for breakfast to one of my most favourite places in New York called Sarabeth with friends, and then I’ve enrolled for a workout special which is called resolution class. So, I’m going to stay healthy. I’m going to make my resolutions and if life goes as planned, I’m going to remember them at least till the end of the year or the end of the month but it always falls flat on my face. So, pretty much do the usual and try and be good.  

Neha DhupiaNeha Dhupia

What’s your hangover mantra?
I’ve partied hard; who knows where the night is going to go, who knows what’s going to happen the next day, but I’m not a crazy drinker so a hangover shouldn’t be an issue. At least I hope I haven’t spoken too soon!

 

Three things that you wanted to happen in 2016, which did not happen?
Well, I’m always a sucker for travel, so I wish I had travelled more. There is always a craving to see a fitter version of myself and that’s endless. I also wanted to spend more time with my family, but  family time is never enough, no matter how long you get.

In 2017, what is that one thing that you would like to give up?
What I’d like to give up in 2017 is caffeine. I’m hugely addicted to my tea and coffee. I say that every year but I never manage. But then again, a few vices are not so bad!

What’s on your travel list this year?
I want to just explore more of South America, especially Cuba. I’m really enchanted by that part of the world.

 

Three things you wish to accomplish this year?
One would definitely be to produce more and have better content for Big Girl Productions, my production company that I launched in 2016. I think I definitely want to stay away from my phone, because I feel like it takes too much of my time between Instagram, Facebook, Twiiter, social media and my life. I need to have a digital detox. And the third thing would be to travel around the world a little more, with my family of course.

What’s your New Year Resolution?
I never have one, but off the top of my head, I think I’d like to stop hitting the snooze button because I do that and I always get delayed by those extra 10 minutes and it takes my day down. So, yes, stay away from the snooze button.

 

Sayani Gupta
What are you going to do on the first day of 2017?
On the first day of 2017, I’m shooting for my new film. It’s the best way to spend the first day of the year. I’ll have to be on set at 9 am so that’s a pretty early start to the year. But I am not complaining.

Sayani GuptaSayani Gupta

What’s your hangover mantra?
Ginger Ale. That’s my magic potion to cut hangovers.

Three things that you wanted to happen in 2016, which did not happen?
Well, Jagga Jasoos was to release.  I was to take a trip to Bhutan and travel through the North East India.

In 2017, what is that one thing that you would like to give up?
Nothing at all.

 

What’s on your travel list this year?
I am already travelling for a shoot. But I have to do the North East  and Bhutan trips that are remaining from last year’s wish list. I also want to do a Europe tour and visit Vietnam, Cambodia and Iceland.

Three things you wish to accomplish this year?
I would definitely want to start training more rigorously. I also want to pick up a new activity like surfing. Lastly, I want to learn the guitar properly. Not to forget taking at least three holidays without work.

Richa Chadha
What are you going to do on the first day of 2017?
I will sit on the beach, have a pina colada and relax.

What’s your hangover mantra?
I may not party all night. I don’t like crowded clubs in our country. Hangover can best be avoided by not drinking, or having equal quantities of water and alcohol.
