Akon keen on meeting pal Shahrukh Khan

Lonely singer Akon's three days' trip to India has been tightly scheduled with minute-by-minute planning made by the organisers in India. Even, after knowing his schedule, Akon has requested his organisers to fit in time for him to meet his dear friend actor Shahrukh Khan.

Sujit Jain, MD of Netsurf Entertainment, who is hosting Akon, admits to Hollywood Hungama that Akon has asked time to meet Shahrukh Khan. "Of course, Akon will meet Shahrukh. We've worked the meeting into Akon's schedule after he hands over a cheque on Thursday morning to the needy children in Mumbai."

After the meeting with Shahrukh Khan, the rapper will head to Pune, where he would be celebrating his private Birthday bash. Akon also insisted on celebrating his birthday in Pune rather than in Mumbai. He will also be seen performing on stage for 45 minutes for a crowd of 1200 people only.

Jain informed, “That again is a massive problem. As soon as it became known in Pune that Akon would be performing we had requests for tickets that ran into unbelievable numbers. But we can only accommodate 1000-1200 people at the Pune concert."

After his small performance in Pune on Friday night, Akon will be celebrating his private birthday bash. Later he will visit Gurhaon, where the organisers will be celebrating his birthday on stage during the performance. On Sunday (May 17), Akon will be seen performing for the Bangalore crowd and then will return to the US on Monday morning.

It is also reported that the singer, before leaving India, wants to watch one film of actor and his co-host Suniel Shetty. He wants to watch Suniel's recently released film, 'Thank You'. Akon has also insisted on trying all Indian cuisine, which has again become a problem for the organisers. They have to arrange special Indian food for the rapper, without making him suffer the burnt of the spices in India. Akon and his wife are great foodies, and the organizers, Suniel Shetty and partner Sujit Jain are making all efforts to set the right items on the menu for three days.

Woof!! that's a lot of things, how will Akon manage to handle it?
