Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Gauri Khan

When Aishwarya Rai Bachchan walked out of Shah Rukh Khan’s home-production Chalte Chalte, she also ended up severing ties with Gauri Khan. “That was collateral damage,” sniggers a trade source. And in the years that followed, things between the Khans and the Bachchans got slightly awkward. Guests who went to a party at the Bachchan residence before the Abhiash marriage recall how SRK and Gauri did put in an appearance. In fact, Ash even supposedly played the unofficial hostess, but Gauri and she barely exchanged pleasantries. Now the hatchet stands buried. After the Drona and Paa premieres, Shah Rukh and Gauri and Ash and Abhishek are bonding big time. At Karan Johar’s bash last year, Gauri walked up to Ash and allegedly apologised for all the bad blood that existed between them. And now this relationship has taken a full 360 degree turn… with these power couples spending time with each other at Sonali Bendre’s birthday bash and at another party recently. Those in the know say that if this spirit of bonhomie continues, there might be a day soon when a filmmaker, who is close to both the Bachchans and the Khans, may just announce a film with SRK and Aishwarya — two of the biggest attractions in the Hindi film industry. Is someone anxious and jealous?
