Sunny Dewan, managing director, HDIL along with his fashionista wife Anu hosted a glitzy party on Christmas eve at their Bandra residence. Bollywood bigwigs came in hordes - Akshay Kumar with Twinkle, Shah Rukh Khan with Gauri, Arjun Rampal with Mehr Jesia, Shilpa with Raj Kundra and Aishwarya with Abhishek besides several other heavyweights arrived. Singles like Ranbir Kapoor, Sikander Kher and Salman Khan too turned up.
What became the moment of moments was when Abhishek Bachchan and Salman Khan were spotted in a corner, conversing.
"Late into the party, when most of the guests were glowing happily (thanks to the free flowing alcohol and continental spread), Abhishek and Salman officially put an end to all the tension between, some real and others perceived," reports Mumbai Mirror.
The tabloid quotes an eye-witness: “Salman came in around 2.30 am, much after his best friend Sajid Nadiadwala had left the venue. In a flash, he put an arm around Abhishek and the two walked into a corner to chat.”
"Aishwarya... maintained a dignified distance from both her former boyfriend and her husband all the time," says the tabloid report.
Perhaps Bollywood stars are more grown-up than we'd like to believe. Our take: Good for them to be friends, besides the rivalry is clearly way past it's expiry date anyway.
