Kunal Kapoor says no to Mother`s Day

New Delhi: He is a self confessed `mama`s boy` but Bollywood heartthrob Kunal Kapoor won`t be sending his mother flowers or cupcakes this Mother` Day.

The actor says that Mother`s Day is merely a marketing gimmick and he doesn`t need a special day to express his love for his mother.

"I don`t need any particular day to tell my mother I love her. I love giving her surprises even otherwise. Mother`s Day is nothing but a marketing gimmick," Kunal who was in
the capital on Friday to inaugurate a spa with actress Mugdha Godse, told reporters.

The lanky actor, last seen in cameo roles in `Bachna Ae Haseeno` and `Welcome to Sajjanpur`, says he comes up with different ways to keep his mother happy.

"I write letters to her and very often send her flowers too. I`m a really bad cook and sometimes I don her apron and cook to surprise her," he said.

The actor attributed his success to his mother who had inspired him a lot.

"At the end of the day I just want to see her smile," said the actor.

Kunal who is known to be "finicky" about the roles he chooses to play will be seen opposite Sanjay Dutt in Rahul Dholakia`s "Lamha" which will hit theatres this July.
