Rani, Abhishek: back to old ways
There was disappointment for those waiting to see deathly tension erupt on the sets of Pradeep Sarkar's Laaga Chunari Mein Daag between Abhishek Bachchan and Rani Mukherjee.
It was being expected that the relationship between the Bachchans and Rani would be strained after they did not invite her for Abhi-Ash's weedding.
But on the contrary, there was absolutely no coldness between Rani and Abhishek on the sets.
"How can there be?" says a close friend of both the stars.
"Rani and Abhishek have done four films as a lead pair, all hits. They're seen as the Amitabh-Jaya of the new millennium. They're so comfortable with each other.
"Yes, not being invited to the wedding did hurt Rani. She always thought of the Bachchans as a part of her extended family and hoped they considered her the same.
"Intially she was upset about not being invited. But the minute she met Abhishek last week after a longish gap, all grievances dissolved instantaneously."
Rani and Abhishek's body language on the sets seems like as though nothing has happened.
"Nothing about Abhishek has changed after marriage. He's still a major prankster. When Rani realised this, she immediately dropped her defences. The party spirit that prevails every time Abhishek is around is back. The set for Laaga Chunari Mein Daag resembles a picnic spot," says the source.
