Mumbai, Oct 25 : Akshay Kumar, who was in Toronto shooting for a music video, flew back in time for a very special get-together being organised by his two most favourite women – wife Twinkle and sister Alka.
Both have organised a grand pre-Karva Chauth get-together Monday and named it – The Blast Before Fast. The event is at Alka’s spa Aroma Garden in Juhu.
Karva Chauth is on Tuesday. On the occasion, a day-long fast is observed by married women for the well-being of their husbands.
“Twinkle and her sister-in-law Alka, who get along like a house on fire, hit on this ingenious plan of an all star-wives meet a day before Karva Chauth. Their logic was, why shouldn’t wives have the time of their lives on the day before they undergo food- less penance for their husbands? They named their event ‘The Blast Before The Fast’,” said a source close to Akshay.
And all Bollywood wives — from Gauri Khan and Sajid Nadiadwala’s wife to Akshay’s mother and mother-in-law Dimple Kapadia — are invited.
Men, excluding Akshay, are strictly barred.
Akshay has been getting pleading calls from his buddies asking if they could “drop in” at the party.
“But Alka and Twinkle have strictly forbidden male participation. They say it’s an evening devoted to the girls. The guys can take care of themselves,” said a source.
The actor, who returned on Sunday, immediately got busy with his wife and sister issuing all the invitations and arranging for the best food games and entertainment.
