The year has also been good for some celebrities who resolved their long term rivalry with their contemporaries in the industry.
At awards or any such social gatherings, most of the celebrities leave their rivalry behind and act decent. However, 2014 award shows has been special as Bollywood's famous arch rivals have shocked everyone with their series of hugs. One of the most special awards was Star Screen Awards 2014 where we saw a patch-up spree among celebrities of Bollywood.

Yes, the two leading Khans of the industry hugged each other on the stage of an award function and silenced all the criticism they gathered for their long term rivalry. Last year Salman and Shahrukh hugged each other at party which too became a news and then this second sighting was a treat to the eyes. They might still not be friends, but the hug that too at an awards stage is a sign of patch up to many believers.
Another hugging session was seen between Salman Khan and Abhishek Bachchan. Salman and Abhishek were once close friends till Sallu's love interest Aishwarya Rai tied the knot with Abhishek.
