India’s leading industrialist Mukesh Ambani threw open the doors of his luxurious sky rise Antilla to celebrate cricketer Sachin Tendulkar’s recent feat – scoring his 100th 100 – and biggies from almost every industry, the business world, the sports fraternity, politics and, of course, filmi folks shone in their best attire at the do. And on this special occasion, ex-lovers Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan – who were both on the VVIP guest list – came face to face for the first time in ages. In the past, the two have been at the same place, but never crossed paths.
To begin with, Salman and Ash were seated in the first row, a few heads apart. While Ash had her hubby Abhishek Bachchan by her side, Salman sat next to Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao. The interesting moment was when the Dabangg dude was invited on stage to say a few words in of praise for Sachin, just after Aamir Khan did. True to their individual styles, the ace actor kept his speech simple, straight and personal, whereas the Pandey-man chose to crackle up the crowd with his cheeky talk. And not only did Salman manage to have everyone in splits, but even got his ex-girlfriend, with whom he had such a bitter parting, gleefully giggling away with her hubby in tandem. Isn’t that sweet? We did notice that Abhishek laughed harder at Salman’s jokes than Ash. While we found out all that from a video recording of the big night, our informant from the inner circle revealed that though the ex-lovers never attempted to interact with the other, they looked pretty comfortable being in the same place at the same time. All we can say, it looks like the young former couple have really matured!
