Says a source close to Akshay, “The family vacation was planned well in advance to coincide with Akshay"s son Aarav"s school vacations. Akshay doesn"t like leaving Aarav behind when he is out of the country. At the same time, he doesn"t want his son to miss school. So the annual holiday was planned well in advance. No power on earth, not even iifa awards, is going to persuade Akshay to take even a small break from the holiday, let alone break his little boy"s heart."
In fact, it was suggested by iifa awards organizers that Akshay fly down from wherever he was to Macau for the event. When Akshay refused to perform the organizers suggests he comes down with to Macau with his wife and son just to attend.
Akshay wouldn"t relent. Says the source, “Akshay planned the holiday for his son well in advance. The two sat together and decided, which places to visit and what spots of the world would be of most interest to the boy. He rushed through his current assignments to keep June free. Nothing else matters at the moment."
