October 28, 2010 : Akshay Kumar who was in Toronto shooting for a music video flew back on Sunday in time for a very special get-together being organized by his two most favourite woman on earth.
Wife Twinkle and sister Alka got together to organize a grand pre-‘Karva Chauth’ get-together on Monday.
‘Karva Chauth’, a day-long holy fast observed by the wives for the well-being of their husbands, was on Tuesday.
Says a source close to Akshay, “Twinkle and her sister-in-law Alka who get along like a house on fire hit on this ingenius 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.’
And all Bollywood wives from Gauri Khan and Mrs Sajid Nadiadwala to Akshay’s mother and mother-in-law Dimple Kapadia were invited. Men, excluding Akshay Kumar were strictly barred.
Akshay got pleading calls from his buddies asking if they could “drop in” at the party.
“But Alka and Twinkle had strictly forbidden male participation. They say it’s an evening devoted to the girls. The guys can take care of themselves,”says a source.
Akshay who flew back to Mumbai on Sunday and immediately got busy with his wife and sister issuing all the invitations and arranging for the best food games and entertainment.
‘The Blast Before he Fast’ party is to be held at Akshay’s sister Alka’s spa Aroma Garden in Juhu.
