Mumbai: Well, this was certainly expected. 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.
The starry event saw many Bollywood bigwigs gracing the mega event that included the likes of Priyanka Chopra, Kareena Kapoor and many others.
It was indeed a night when “so-called” foes shared a common platform resulting in an awkward situation. One such case was that of Priyanka and Kareena Kapoor’s.
But Salman was quick enough to avoid a rendezvous.
Talking to a leading daily, a source said, “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.”
For those who are wondering why Salman avoided Big B, here’s the answer. Salman was dating Aishwarya Rai, who is now Big B’s daughter-in-law. She is the duly wed wife of Abhishek Bachchan. Hence Salman’s conscious effort to avoid the legendary actor.
Meanwhile, Kolkata Knight Rider owner, Shah Rukh Khan was conspicuous of his absence at the event. Was Salman the reason?
