Salman avoids Amitabh Bachchan at IPL 5 rehearsals
In showbiz, it is the hardest to live by the adage forgive and forget. No wonder, awkward moments faced by actors make for interesting stories. On Monday evening, actors Amitabh Bachchan and Salman Khan faced one such moment, when they were present at the same time at the venue for the IPL opening night in Chennai.
Bollywood’s bad boy Salman Khan chose not to bump into Amitabh Bachchan during the rehearsals of their IPL 5 opening ceremony performances Monday evening.
Before delivering their final performance, both Amitabh Bachchan and Salman Khan wanted to do rehearsals on the stage. Amitabh Bachchan was already on the stage perfecting his acts. Salman Khan came to know about Amitabh Bachchan’s presence on the stage. Somehow Salman Khan didn’t want to meet Amitabh Bachchan so he waited inside his vanity van till Amitabh Bachchan’s rehearsal was over.
A leading English daily quoted a source, “Since Salman got to the venue around the time Amitabh was rehearsing on the stage, he chose to wait it out in his vanity van before he came on the stage.”
In fact, this isn’t the first time in the recent weeks that Salman has avoided a run-in with someone from the Bachchan parivar. A similar instance occurred at the funeral of Boney Kapoor’s first wife Mona Kapoor. It was reported that Salman apparently waited it out in his car when he learnt that Abhishek Bachchan was inside and made an appearance only when he left.
Salman Khan was the ex-boyfriend of Aishwarya Rai. Once they were reportedly in love but fell out later. Later on Aishwarya Rai allegedly dated Vivek Oberai. Later on Aishwarya Rai got married to Abhishek Bachchan and is the mother of a baby girl too. But whenever it is possible, Salman Khan avoids Bachchan family.
It is also true, whenever Salman Khan and Amitabh Bachchan come face to face they always greet each other. At the opening of IPL inauguration ceremony, Salman Khan and Amitabh Bachchan gave a hit performance. Kareena Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra too were at the IPL inauguration ceremony and both dated Shahid Kapoor at different time. They too don’t share warm relationship. But somehow they managed to remain neutral towards each other.
Shahrukh Khan who is the owner of Kolkata Knight Rider owner, was absent too from the IPL inauguration ceremony.
