Mumbai, Feb 26 (IANS) Australian pop singer Kylie Minogue arrived here Thursday morning and one of her first appointments was lunch at Bollywood star Akshay Kumar's residence.
"Kylie and some of Akshay and Twinkle Khanna's close friends from the industry, plus the 'Blue' crew were invited for lunch by the actor on Thursday afternoon. This is supposed to be his way of making her comfortable in Mumbai," a source close to Akshay told IANS.
Kylie has recorded a song for Akshay's underwater thriller "Blue", which is being directed by Anthony D'Souza and produced by Shree Ashtavinayak Cine Vision Ltd.
The source said: "If Hrithik Roshan and Sussanne went all out to make Barbara Mori comfortable in Mumbai, why not Akshay and his wife?"
Akshay apparently had decided to do some of the cooking himself for the special guest.
Ashtavinayak invited the entire army of television cameras to cover the 'private' lunch at Akshay's home making you wonder how comfortable our foreigner guest would feel on her first outing in Mumbai with cameras recording every munch and slurp.
