Priyanka Chopra might have had a private bash on the night of her 27th birthday but DNA has learnt that the actor took time out of her busy schedule to spend the entire day with orphans and senior citizens bringing smile on their faces. In fact, Priyanka does this every year as she looks forward to spend her birthday by either visiting an orphanage or an old-age home. The former Miss World believes that she can't have a more 'meaningful birthday' without doing so.
A source says, "This year Priyanka visited a leprosy home, an old age home and an orphanage and distributed gifts to the inmates.
She has been doing it every year on her birthday. Apart from that she also visits the inmates whenever she can squeeze some time out of her schedule. She is attached with several orphanages and old-age homes in Mumbai and on her birthday when she is smiling, she wants to see the same smile on the faces of the not so fortunate ones."
The insider adds, "There's always an entourage of 10-15 people with Priyanka whenever she does this round on her birthday. She makes sure that her parents are around her all through the day when she is visiting these places. Priyanka also involves her staff and also her best friend from Delhi, Tamanna, who flies down every year. She very thoughtfully chooses gifts for all of them. She also buys food and clothes for them. Throughout the day Priyanka meets more than 300 children and about 150 old people and spends time with each one of them. She feels her birthdays aren't complete without meeting them."
