Akshay Kumar celebrates his 39th birthday with family
Akshay Kumar, the Khiladi of bollywood has proved himself time and again first with his action flicks, then with his comedy spree and now finally in his forthcoming film Jaaneman with his emotional antics. Akshay Kumar celebrates his 39th birthday on September 9 with his wife Twinkle and son. However for the actor who is extremely committed to his work, it was work as usual apart from spending the day with his family.
Akshay was in Chennai shooting for Priyadarshan’s film Bhagam Bhag. However the actor flew down to Mumbai and brought in his birthday with his family. There is no lavish birthday bash for this actor, as he prefers to bring in his special day with his family by his side. In fact Akshay says “Birthdays are not of great importance to me. I consider it just another day. But I will fly back for a day to Mumbai to be with my family on my birthday. However after that, I will have to come back to Chennai, to continue the shoot. Work is obviously very important.” Akshay claims that spending time with his family and being at home are the only things he wants to do after having worked hard during his last schedule for Bhagam Bhag.
Akshay also claimed “I prefer quiet dinners to crowded bashes.” Nonetheless director Priyadarshan threw a surprise party for Akshay at his home and the party or rather small gathering was attended by bollywood friends like Govinda, Lara Dutta, Paresh Rawal etc. On his birthday Akshay made some birthday resolutions, the main one among them being on cutting down work and spending time with his growing son Aarav. Akki says “I want to cut down on my work load and do just three films a year. I want to focus on quality rather than quantity and pick up films which appeal to me. I want to spend more time with my family and son who is growing up fast.” However although the actor has turned 39, he still feels he can sing, dance and yet romance the heroines on-screen.
Akshay also received a unique gift from close friend Sajid Nadiadwala. Sajid will be launching the music of his forthcoming film Jaaneman that stars Salman, Akshay and Preity on the birthday of Akshay Kumar. Sajid says “Coincidently, two years ago I launched the music of my film ‘Mujhse Shaadi Karogi’ on Akshay’s birthday. It was a big hit. Now I’m releasing the music of Jaaneman today as birthday gift to him. I hope it’s lucky for me this time too.” Akshay’s forthcoming films include Priyadarshan’s Bhagam Bhag and Sajid Nadiadwala’s Jaaneman. He has also signed a four-film package with the Reliance Group. We wish the actor a very happy birthday and a prosperous year ahead.
