Aishwarya Rai Bachchan surprised everyone at the recently held Sansui Stardust Awards, when she called Rekha 'Maa'. We all know that Jaya Bachchan and Rekha are not too friendly and the reason behind it is Rekha's alleged affair (in the past) with Amitabh Bachchan.
Both Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Amitabh Bachchan attended the Sansui Stardust awards together. At the function, Aishwarya received an award from veteran actress Rekha. When Rekha gave the award to Aishwarya, she addressed the veteran actress as 'Maa' which surprised the on-lookers.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan said, "It is great to receive it from 'Maa'. To this Rekha replied, "I hope I can give it to you for many more years." Though both Rekha and Jaya Bachchan recently hugged and greeted each other at the recently held Screen Awards, this statement of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan might still not go down too well with Jaya!
Not many people know that as a young model, Aishwarya once had a close encounter with actress Rekha in a Mumbai grocery store. Rekha recognized Ash from her ads and wished her all the best. And when Aish became a famous model, Rekha had said, "Among the models I admire, I find Aishwarya is the best. I disagree with the media that she is 'plastic'. I find her very expressive.''
Rekha have praised Aishwarya in many interviews, ''She doesn't need to go to Hollywood to prove herself. She's our own. Why Bride & Prejudice? Who are these people from outside trying to tap Ash's potential? She's our treasure. It's time we acknowledge her.She was fabulous in Sanjay Bhansali's Devdas. Everyone wondered how she would compare to Suchitra Sen's performance as Paro in Bimal Roy's Devdas.''
