Actor Rishikesh Ingley, who shares his birthday with veteran actor Rekha, turned a year older on 10th October. Rishikesh says that he feels honoured to share his birthday with such a renowned personality. “It sure feels great to share your birthday with the evergreen and gorgeous Rekha and the date to be followed by the birthday of Mr Amitabh Bachchan, the next day. Also, it’s awesome to be born in a month where legends are born starting from the father of our nation, Gandhiji,” says the actor, who is currently seen as Balvindar in the show Shakti on Colors.

Rishikesh has a set ritual on his birthday. “It starts with partying with close friends on the eve of my birthday and the day starts on a positive note by going to the temple. I spend the rest of the day with my love Supriya,” he says.

This birthday was no exception. “I am really happy that this birthday had been so special. I received so many wonderful wishes and love from so many people,” he says.

Ask him if he has any favourite birthday memories, and he says, “Each birthday has been special to me, as I believe in celebrating life to the fullest. I have enjoyed this day each and every year.”

The actor is determined to make some changes in himself this year. “The changes I want in myself would be improving my time management skills and getting fitter,” he says.
