On his Valentine's Day plans, Kapoor said: "Mira (wife Mira Rajput Kapoor) and I are very spontaneous. We do things we feel correct doing in last minute.

"Now, obviously we have kids and we have to make sure that they are priority so, I don't know as of now. There are no plans. We will see what we want to do on the day."
