“The birthday celebrations on April 15 includes a professional performance. This would be a ticketed event and would be charged and thereby, taxed. SRK was expected to host the party for Akon, thanks to their Ra.One connection. Since the singer wanted fans in attendance as well, it was obvious the party wouldn't happen at SRK's residence Mannat but it's equally surprising that Shahrukh chose to go hunting for a venue and for sponsors (albeit unsuccessfully) that would spare him the costs of hosting the bash. How unclassy!" Mid-Day quoted a source as saying.
However, the “Lonely" hitmaker is not going to be lonely on his birthday. Sonakshi Sinha of Dabangg fame and Priyanka Chopra have expressed their desire to meet and wish him on his birthday!
Everybody knows that Bollywood actor Shahrukh Khan is very close to international singer Akon. He has even roped in the singer to lend his voice for one of the tracks of his much-hyped film Ra.One. But we heard that he has disappointed the singer by not keeping his words to host his birthday bash in Mumbai.
