To dear Aarav, with love
Akshay Kumar booked an entire hall for a preview of Fantastic Four for son Aarav and his friends, at a multiplex
How far can a doting father go to make the day for his baby boy? Ask Akshay Kumar. On Wednesday night Akshay booked the entire PVR multiplex at Juhu for a preview of Fantastic Four for his cute beta Aarav.
Aarav loves to watch Hollywood animated and fantasy films. Akshay not only booked the entire multiplex for a preview for his son, he also invited all his schools friends to watch the film.Also invited at the preview were producers Sajid Nadiadwala, Vipul Shah and Rakesh Upadhyay with their respective families.
Akshay's family was also there which included his wife Twinkle, mother-in-law Dimple Kapadia and his sister Alka along with daughter Simran.
This simple screening for his son Aarav was pretty dramatic actually. One of the invitees present at the special screening says, "Akshay himself took care of the kids and was seen personally distributing popcorns to everyone standing at the counter.
Some of the media men who were also at the PVR for the premiere of Fantastic Four landed at the private hall on the top floor. Suddenly there was chaos. Akshay, who is known to keep his family away from the media glare, gently requested the media to not click pictures. After that Akshay left to watch the film with his son surrounded by all the kids.
When contacted Akshay Kumar said, "yes, but this was a very private affair for my family, so I do not wish to talk about it."
