Soon after Aishwarya and Abhishek exchanged rings, the Bachchans invited close friends for an impromptu party at Jalsa. Obviously, Salman Khan and Viveik Oberoi weren't party to the happy proceedings.
Even though Amitabh has worked with Salman and Abhishek claims to be good friends with the Khan, he was uninvited. Viveik, who too has worked with Bachchan Jr in Yuva, was not invited either. So what were Viveik and Salman doing the night the couple solemnised their relationship?
He was dancing away at Parmeshwar Godrej's Juhu bungalow at a party she had threw in honour of Hollywood actor Richard Gere, who is presently in India on an Aids awareness project.
Sallu was there with his close friends and got to know about Ash's engagement there. Surprisingly though, it didn't put him in a foul mood for the rest of the evening. On the contrary, he appeared rather carefree and light-hearted. A source close to him says, "Salman is over Ash. He forgot about her a long time ago."
The actor is away on his annual trip to the pilgrimage site at Sabarimala in Kerala and was supposed to have returned to Mumbai last night. When his friends informed him about the news over the phone, he too seemed unaffected. Says a friend of the actor, "They split up last January and he doesn't talk about her anymore. I guess he's moved on."

King Khan, who was in the city but not busy shooting since it was Sunday.
His wife Gauri, who generally fills in for her hubby, was conspicuous by her absence too. Surprising, since the last time the Bachchans had an impromptu party, SRK drove to his residence in the middle of the night to pay his respects!
