Walk into my parlour, SRK: Akshay
Looks like Akshay Kumar believes in letting bygones be
On a high because of the good opening box-office collections of his latest release, Kambakkht Ishq, Akshay threw a party last night along with his co-star Kareena Kapoor. He especially invited competitor Shah Rukh Khan, who is currently shooting in San Francisco for My Name is Khan.
Confirming the news, Akshay said, “Yes, I did call up Shah Rukh to invite him. On Sunday evening when Kareena and I suddenly decided to have a party, we decided to invite the entire industry. This wasn’t a party to celebrate our success alone. It was also a party to celebrate the success of New York as much as my film. So apart from me and Kareena, Katrina (Kaif), John (Abraham) and the entire team of New York were the party’s unofficial hosts.”
In the past, Akshay has been very vocal about the underhand means employed by his competitors to undermine his box-office standing. Having vented his views on the negative competition among the industry’s A-listers, why did Akshay invite those very people whom he accuses of trying to sabotage his film? He said, “I want them to celebrate any success and not be happy when other’s films fail. When New York released, text messages against the film were sent out. The same thing is happening with my film. Why be negative? Especially when I’ve always been happy for all my colleagues’ successes? So yes, I personally called up Shah Rukh and all my colleagues to invite them to the party. But since he’s shooting in San Francisco, he won’t be here. I am sure there will be plenty more occasions.”
The party hosted at the Marriott last night was Akshay’s first ever. “I completely shy away from parties. But this time I think we all needed to express solidarity and happiness because of the end of the prolonged slump,” he said.
The impromptu party was Kareena’s idea. “We quickly drew up a list. She invited her friends. I invited mine. Then there was Tina (wife Twinkle), who called her friends. That just about covered the whole industry,” added Akshay.
