By Subhash K. Jha

Mumbai, July 8 (IANS) When Akshay Kumar decided to throw his first party in Bollywood to celebrate the opening collections of his "Kambakkht Ishq", he made it a point to invite Shah Rukh Khan even though the superstar was far away in San Francisco.

"Yes, I did call Shah Rukh Khan to invite him. When Kareena and I suddenly decided on Sunday evening to have a party, we decided we'd 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 own film. So, apart from me and Kareena, the party's unofficial hosts were Katrina (Kaif), John (Abraham) and the entire 'New York' team," said Akshay.
