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 women 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 wives for the well-being of their husbands, falls 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 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.'
And all Bollywood wives from Gauri Khan and Mrs Sajid Nadiadwala to Akshay's mother and mother-in-law Dimple Kapadia are invited. Men, excluding Akshay Kumar 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," says a source.
Akshay, who flew back to Mumbai on Sunday, immediately got busy with his wife and sister issuing all the invitations and arranging for the best food games and entertainment. The Blast Before The Fast party is to be held at Akshay's sister Alka's spa Aroma Garden in Juhu.
