Kiss ke ‘side’ effects

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.
This one comes immediately after the news of SRK extending the olive branch to Aishwarya Rai. The next big kiss-and-make up has allegedly happened between the Bachchans and Hrithik Roshan.

The Bachchans were said to have disapproved of the kissing scene between Aishwarya Rai and Hrithik Roshan in Dhoom 2. Thereafter, the Bachchans and the Roshans were not spotted together at any social event.

However, recently, Hrithik Roshan, Aishwarya Rai, Abhishek Bachchan and Amitabh Bachchan were spotted at the same venue. Clearly, there seemed to be a thaw between the Bollywood celebrities present at Dabboo Ratnani's calendar launch.

The Bachchans walked into the launch party with Ash (they travelled in the same car), and met Hrithik. When Abhishek realized that the cameras were on, he greeted Hrithik Roshan with a warm hug, while Ash smiled and posed for the shutterbugs too. But as these pictures alongside suggest the tension from the kiss controversy have not disappeared. "Actually, Dabboo had insisted that Duggu (Hrithik) come for the launch, because that was the only way to break the ice between the Abhishek and Hrithik. They have been school friends and it was really unpleasant for both of them not to talk to each other for such a long while," says our source.
"At the party, Abhishek congratulated Hrithik for his fabulous performance in Dhoom 2," our source adds. Even Amitabh Bachchan hugged Hrithik and praised him for his performances all through 2006.

Hrithik was very cordial with the Bachchans too. "Hrithik is a thorough gentleman. He never gets into fights with his co-actors. He always thinks before speaking and is most often politically correct. Besides, he was not to blame for the kissing scene in Dhoom 2. It was part of the script which didn't go down well with Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan, considering that they are planning to get Aishwarya married to Abhishek," says our source.

Jahaan Teri Yeh Nazar Hai..

and Abhishek come face-to-face at Dabboo Ratnani’s party.

They try to stike a happy family pose for the cameras. Abhishek has a brotherly arm around Suzanne Khan’s shoulder.

(But we’d give a treasure for his thoughts though...). But Ash is clearly tense and not quite part of the camaraderie

Door Darshan

Ash turns with a wary smile, awkwardly waiting to be included in the circle of friends but it’s a clear case of ‘three’s company’ here. Only Suzanne seems unaffected by the tension

Abhi Toh Nazar Milao

Rebuffed, Ash turns away, her tightly clasped hands the only hint that all’s not well. Hrithik who has his hands firmly in his pockets too looks a tad uncomfortable

The Joke's On Who?

Ash trying to get a look-see at something that’s amused the whole group. Unlike Hrithik and Suzanne’s warm handclasp, Abhishek’s turned away shoulder stops Ash from being part of the group

Ignore Kiya Re

Ash, Suzanne
finally say hello, but Ash is still avoiding meeting Hrithik’s eyes

For God Sake, get over it, Mr B! It was in the script! Hritrik and Suzanne has a happy marriage. Look at Suzanne, she is so sweet and The Bs are making a mountain out of molehill!
