Aishwarya Rai Bachchan steals Vidya Balan’s thunder!

Read on to know when, where and how!

Talk about hitting below the belt! Some actresses indulge in catfights, some hit out at each other through interviews or TV shows. But few can do it with sophistication. Remember how Shahrukh Khan had diverted the attention of the media to himself at an event where Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif were on stage to promote Tees Maar Khan? Well, Aishwarya did a similar thing, but more subtly. It so happened that at an awards night in B-town, Aishwarya posed for photographers and signed autographs and was on her way out when she suddenly did a U-turn and came back – only to cross the path of Vidya Balan, who was posing happily for the shutterbugs and enjoying her share of the limelight. But Ash made sure to slow down and greet Vidya (who had acted in Paa with Abhishek and Amitabh Bachchan), so that it seemed as if she did not mean to come between the cameras and the Ishqiya star. And, of course, half the photo guys shifted their attention to Ash again. Well, talk about learning the ropes from the Bachchans…or the Bachchan bahu, in this case. Ash, we’re impressed!
