Beta First: Akshay Gives Up IIFA For Family HolidayJune 6th, 2009 - 11:36 am ICT by Sampurn Wire
By Subhash K Jha
Forget about performing live, Akshay Kumar won’t be attending the 10th IIFA awards in Macau next month.
June has been kept aside for the family vacation, and nothing in the world can change that.
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 I advance. No power on earth, not even IIFA, 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 organizers that Akshay fly down from wherever he was to Macau for the event. When Akshay refused to perform the organizers suggests he come 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.” -Sampurn Media
