AJAY AND FAMILY OFF TO MALDIVES

img_6767

Ajay Devgn had taken to the social media on April 18 to complain about how exhausted he was. “Shooting non-stop since past 5 months. Getting a much-needed break, waiting for Rohit to leave for Khatron Ke Khiladi,” he wrote. Now, Mirror has learnt that the 48-year-old actor-filmmaker, having wrapped up shooting for the Mumbai schedule of Rohit Shetty’s Golmaal Again on Tuesday, is all set to take off to the Maldives with actress-wife Kajol, kids Nysa and Yug, his sisters, Neelam and Kavita, and their respective families, for a much-deserved vacation.
“After returning from his New Year holiday in London, Ajay has been shooting back-to-back for Milan Luthria’s Baadshaho, followed by Rohit’s Golmaal Again. Rohit leaving for Spain to shoot for the upcoming season of Khatron Ke Khiladi has facilitated some time-off for Ajay which he wants to spend with his family. It couldn’t have come at a better time as Kajol too wrapped up work on Dhanush’s VIP 2 recently,” informs a source close to the actor, adding that Ajay will leave on May 28 and return after 10-12 days. “All the arrangements have been made and the family is really excited.”
Shooting for the fourth instalment in the Golmaal caper will resume after Rohit returns from Spain. Maldives seems to have become the new ‘go-to’ holiday destination for B-townies. While Salman and the Khan-daan had recently taken off to the South- Asian island country to celebrate nephew Ahil’s first birthday at a newlyopened, resort, Alia Bhatt, along with father Mahesh, mother Soni Razdan and sister Shaheen, was there late last year for a five-day break.

Win A Luxe Honeymoon in Maldives by Haa Alifu atoll,

Wedding photo shoot of Mr and Mrsbin Maldives, Its one of the most memorable event a couples life time,

There are few destinations more breathtaking than the Maldives… Think a string of far-flung desert islands where you sleep in thatched villas built on stilts over the water and swim in a sea the colour of topaz jewels.

Win A Luxe Honeymoon in Maldives by Haa Alifu atoll, Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa is a short seaplane ride from Malé,

Well, win this mega-watt competition and you could be lounging on those same white sands in your favourite kaftan quicker than you can shout ‘someone bring me a Mai Tai!’ A private island paradise in the Haa Alifu atoll, Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa is a short seaplane ride from Malé, one of the most lusted-after resorts in the Indian Ocean.

You’ll enjoy 10 nights half-board (breakfast and dinner included) in a Deluxe Water Villa, which comes with its own plunge pool and private sundeck with steps down to a lagoon teeming with tropical fish. Surrounded by coconut palms and lush vegetation, this is the ideal place to live out your Robinson Crusoe fantasy – the only effort you’ll need to make is padding to and from the mini-bar or cracking open the gorgeous Bulgari goodies in the luxurious bathroom.

As part of your prize, you and your new husband will also get the chance to snorkel among the kaleidoscope of sea life in the resort’s shallow lagoon (cue turtles, stingrays and colourful brain coral).

But that’s not all: you’ll be treated to a relaxing 50-minute Balinese massage for two at the sublime Hideaway Spa. Here, the emphasis is on pampering the natural way, with Natura Bissé products and a soon-to-be introduced organic German range Dorissima. But be careful: you could easily lose a whole day here.

When the sun goes down, you’ve got free rein to sample the delicious cuisine at any of the fabulous restaurants, including the exotic Indian fare at the overwater Samsara, the open-deck Matheefaru – a buffet restaurant with a daily changing menu – and the heavenly beach-front Meeru Grill, which does excellent wood-fired pizzas when lobster and fillet steak gets too much. Our favourite? The Blue Heron, a new buzzing beach club where you can feast on sashimi and oysters at the ‘raw bar’ to a soundtrack of DJ beats.
