Akshay Kumar

His mother’s ill health and demise brought Akshay  Kumar back to India . But the  shooting  of  Ranjit Tiwari’s post-Bell Bottom  spy thriller Cinderella in London won’t stop. Sources  close to Akshay say he  intends  to return to the  interrupted  shooting  within the next  few days.

“You know him na,” a mutual friend tells me. “He  won’t allow  any project to suffer on his account,no matter how grave the  provocation. He will fly back the soonest and  shoot normally,” says the friend about Akshay whose  54th birthday celebrations were cancelled after  the death  in  the family.

Not  only Akshay,  his  wife Twinkle was very close to her mother-in-law, and his children Aarav and Nitara  adored their Daadee.

I met Akshay’s  mother only once when I was invited for  lunch  by Akshay and  Twinkle.  Midway through the meal, Akshay’s mother arrived, looking preoccupied about her next appointment.

Akshay had smiled indulgently and  said, “Maa does her  own thing. She  has her friends, her kitty parties, social get-together, charity  events…She is busier than I am.”

Akshay also shared that ever since his father passed away Akshay had become doubly  protective  towards his  mother.

“Every wish of hers is   my command,” Akshay  confessed affectionately. She would want  her actor-son to get  back to work, and that’s what Akshay is  doing.

Vindoo Dara Singh,a close friend  of Akshay is in Mussourri. “I am here for  forty days  shooting for a film called Forensic  with Vikrant Massey and Radhika Apte. I  couldn’t attend  my friend Siddharth  Shukla’s  cremation, nor was I there  to see Akshay’s mother off. I know how  close Akshay was to his mother. After his  father’s death Akshay looked after his mother and sister like  the head of the family. His mother meant the  world for him.”
