A few days ago, Shweta Bachchan was seen bonding with Abhishek Bachchan's ex-girlfriend, Karisma Kapoor, at her clothing line launch event and it left one and all surprised! Abhishek and Karisma got engaged in 2002 on the eve of Amitabh Bachchan's 60th birthday and just after the four month of their engagement, the Kapoors & the Bachchan called it off without giving any explanation and since then, Abhishek & Karisma avoid bumping into each other.
But when Shweta Bachchan was seen hugging Karisma Kapoor, it left many lips gossiping about what's brewing! Here's what an insider has to say on the same..
Shweta & Karisma Bury The Hatchet
"There was a sincere affection between them," an attendee of the event told Deccan Chronicle, adding, "For years; no member of the Bachchan family spoke to Karisma. Now, Shweta has broken the ice, and rightly so. You can't hold grudges forever."
Aishwarya Looked ‘Uncomfortable’ Through Out The Event
Going by the event videos, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan-Shweta Bachchan's cold vibes was pretty visible. What caught media's attention was the fact that Shweta greeted each and every one, whoever attended the launch except Aishwarya Rai.
Aishwarya Also Ditched To Promote Shweta’s MxS Clothing Line
At the event, where most of the celebs donned Shweta Bachchan's clothing line, ‘MxS' to lnd their support to Big B's daughter, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan refused to do the same and was seen sporting Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla outfit.
On The Other Side, Abhishek Openly Ignored Karisma
Apparently, Karisma Kapoor arrived at the do just when Abhishek & Aishwarya Rai Bachchan were posing for the media. Reportedly, the moment, Abhishek saw Karisma arriving with her girl gang, he quickly went inside the venue along with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan without greeting his ex or her girl gang!
Unlike Aishwarya Rai, Karisma Also Shared A Pic With Shweta
While Abhishek was seen snubbing Karisma, Shweta was seen bonding with Karisma Kapoor like never before. Netizens also poked fun at Shweta Bachchan for being friendlier with Karisma than her own sister-in-law, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
Karisma Had A Gala Time & She Was Anything But Uncomfortable
It was indeed surprising to learn that Karisma has accepted the invitation for the event where all Bachchans were seen together. But Karisma was anything but ‘uncomfortable'. She had a gala time with her girl-pal and was also seen posing with SRK's daughter, Suhana, Ananya and Shanaya.
What About Aishwarya-Shweta?
Considering Aishwarya-Shweta's ongoing cold-war, Karisma's chapter might have brought even more bitterness between them.
Otherwise how would one justify the ‘ignore game' going on between them.
