My Family Be a SPORT!

Hi guys,

As promised I'm back. My whole purpose of being present on a social network was to connect with you guys and share everything about my life.

Hence I would like to start off with introducing to you all, my family without whose love and support I would have never made it.

At home, I share my life with my wife, Tina, my son, Aarav, my mother, Aruna Bhatia, sister, Alka, little niece, Simar and of course my dogs, Stitch and Okie.

At work, I am dependent on my key staff members, who have become family to me…

My driver, Ravi
My trainer, Jennifer
My manager, Lokesh
My executive assistant, Zenobia
My assistant, Nitin
My hair dresser, Milind
Make up artist, Narendra dada.

I hope to continue sharing about my life and family with you here, until then take care.



Hello my friends,

Firstly I'd like to apologise for the long gap, I've recently been in South Africa shooting for the second season of Khatron Ke Khiladi Fear Factor in Cape Town, as well as trying to juggle my time with dubbing for Kambakht Ishq, supporting my Delhi Dare Devils at the IPL, taking my entire family on Safari whilst preparing myself for some insane stunts for my show. Thank god I'm much better at juggling 5 extreme events than I'll ever be at juggling 5 balls… Speaking of balls I'm now in Singapore filming for De Dhana Dhan… But the second I landed what was the most important thing to me - My IPL! So I called up my producer and said I don't care where I stay even if it's in the back of a kitchen, I need to watch my IPL. Bad news, my hotel didn't have the channel ;o( So what else can I do but personally find the hotel manager and fold my hands in humble request and plead and plead for what ever it takes to please get that channel. Can you imagine by the next day I was sitting in my room watching KKR vs PKXI, happy is not enough to describe how I was feeling… And wow what a season it's been, seriously I wish the best for all the teams, you have me on the edge of my seat, and I'd like to send my best regards to ShahRukh Khan's Knight Riders, they've put up a good fight so don't worry boys you will always be loved. And Preity Z she has a tremendous fighting spirit which I must say I adore, she makes us all proud. And dear Shilpa what a come back after the first match, Shane Warne and Yusuf Pathan have carried her team well, keep smiling Shilpa…

While we're on the subject of sports, as much as I love my cricket, my family has many sporting talents in them, my little girl Simar loves basket ball, and she's won matches for her school already. But seeing like most sports in India (unlike cricket) it doesn't have that much funding or backing. So I did some research that I'd like you all to check out. Look up the "Harlem Globetrotters" they are an American basket ball league that have taken everyone by storm, they are incredible at basketball but there's a twist, they go around performing the funniest comedian tricks in the arena which just leaves you with your mouth open in awe, seriously! Please check it out, coz I feel that not being a world champion at a sport doesn't mean you cant hold a place in peoples hearts with that sport, those guys are champions but it ain't always about winning, it's the taking part… So as I sign off, remember you don't have to be the Best to be Great, you just have to want to get up and take part in something. For a simple example look where it's got Shilpa, I remember when she didn't know the difference between a wicket and a stump, now she owns half a team. And my daughter Simar may not be in the NBA yet, (she's only 9) but she tries and strives to be.
So people Be a Sport, wake up and try a Sport.

With much love and support

Your Akshay…
