For actor Anil Kapoor, who will turn 57 Tuesday, 2013 has been a fabulous year. And the 'ever-grin' Bollywood actor-star's smile just got bigger and brighter during the year, mainly because of his successful TV show "24".

"The number 24 has proved lucky for me. My serial '24', which just concluded, has been received with incredible enthusiasm. Now on my birthday on Dec 24 I feel I am 24 years old," said Anil on the eve of his birthday from Dubai. 

"There is so much to do. And I want to do it all. I feel like a child in a toy store. I want everything, and I want it now," 

However, for his birthday Anil is flying back from Dubai to Jaipur, Rajasthan, where his two daughters are shooting.

"Sonam has done very well for herself in 2013. Two of her films 'Raanjhanaa' and 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag' were superhits and she established herself as an actress of substance. 

"My other daughter Rhea has gone on to produce her second film. In fact, Sonam was shooting for Rhea's 'Khubsoorat' in Bikaner. Now they're moving to Jaipur where I'll be joining them for my birthday. So will the rest of my family. So it's one big happy family birthday for me. I wouldn't want it any other way."

The birthday celebrations don't end in Jaipur. On 27th Anil flies back to Dubai for a long-due holiday. 

"All my friends from all over the world are joining me here in Dubai after I return on 27th. We'll just relax. I've been working really hard in 2013. My serial '24' kept me on my toes," said the star of films like "Tezaab", "Viraasat" and "Judaai".
