Karan Johar, who recently turned 37, invited the who’s who of Bollywood to his birthday party. Amongst the invitees were Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Kareena Kapoor who have reportedly been cold to each other for years. Though neither has ever said anything to confirm this, it has been apparent that the two aren’t quite the best of friends. On Koffee With Karan, Kareena admitted that she thinks she could have done a better job of Ash’s role in Dhoom 2.
It may also be recalled that Kareena and Abhishek stopped talking (despite debuting together in Refugee) after Abhishek and Bebo’s sister Karisma called off their engagement.
An article in Mid-Day suggests that Bebo and Ash have finally buried the hatched and got along like a house on fire at Karan’s party. Not only were they laughing together, but eventually joined each other on the dance floor!
Similarly, Karan’s good friend SRK is said to have apologised to Aishwarya after feeling that he “wronged” her. Recall that Aishwarya was dropped from SRK’s home production Chalte Chalte after her then-boyfriend Salman Khan barged on to the sets. The duo hasn’t worked together in years, despite creating magic in Devdas. Reportedly, Ash refused Preity’s role in Veer-Zaara because her and SRK were not on good terms. According to Mid-Day, Abhishek, Aishwarya, SRK and wife Gauri were seen laughing together all night. In fact, Abhi and Ash were even invited back to SRK’s house Mannat to party with Hrithik-Sussanne, Kareena-Saif and Arjun and his wife Mehr.
Also, despite rumours surrounding their appearances at Cannes, Aishwayra reportedly had a brief chat with Sonam Kapoor and the two did not seem to have any bad blood between them.
It looks like Aishwarya had quite a night!
