Farhan Akhtar who was very busy shooting for Shaadi Ke Side Effects has got a reprieve, SKSE release has now been shifted to a Valentine Day release next year. However, unlike most of the other celebrities who zoom off to some fancy beaches or resorts, Farhan Akhtar prefers it to be short, but regular trips, he loves to drive down the gold old roads of Lonavala instead.
A friend of his reveals that, “He has a bungalow there which was recently done up. Since his wife (Adhuna) is also a working professional (she is a hairstylist) and daughters (Shakya and Akira) are studying, long vacations have to be exceptions. Hence he finds time in his schedule, especially during weekends, to make his regular trips to Lonavala instead. He is always accompanied by his immediate family and that also ensures that there is a good connect and bonding time for the family”.
The year 2013 has particularly been tough for this actor-director-singer. The shooting of Bhaag Milkha Bhaag consumed a lot time right through the making, then the promotion required even more constant attention from his side, hence keeping tied up at work leaving no time for his family. Moreover, the film was a physically excruciating affair as well and hence it was the obvious that he went through a detoxification drive.
His friend further adds, “Farhan truly believes that nature is the best healer and this is what he propagates to his friends and family members as well”, “He is one of those fortunate ones to own their own property in Lonavala so it further helps. While this allows him to be far away from the hustle-bustle of Mumbai, he also finds serenity in his quiet pad, and solace in the company of his close ones.”
With the arrival of the festive season ensuring more and more of free time coming in till the New Year’s, the resultant is lots of holidays for kids and Farhan Akhtar’s visits to he beautiful bungalow set in the beautiful scenery of Lonavala.
