The organisers of the International Film Festival of India are in a fix. While the Goa government has invited Amitabh Bachchan for inauguration ceremony, Akshay Kumar, too, has been approached by the cultural wing of I&B Ministry, reports Mumbai Mirror.

Akshay Kumar has already given his nod but the organisers are hopeful that he might back out considering the present situation.

"Sources from the ministry revealed that they were hoping that Akshay may just pull out. Were hoping for an early solution to this impasse. It should not be difficult, considering how much Akshay respects Bachchan Saab. True, but we would not mind the two of them doing the honours together either," reports the tabloid.

Well, communication gap can certainly lead to such blunders!
