Bachchans and Kapoors are friends again!
The two warring families seem to have finally buried the hatchet and forgiven each other after the arrival of darling Beti B
They say a baby mends fences between the worst enemies. We didn’t really put much stock in it till we actually saw it happen with our own eyes. Beti B has done what the Bachchans and Kapoors hadn’t managed to do on their own for several years – convince both sides to forget and forgive the past. It all started with Abhishek Bachchan and Karisma Kapoor’s break-up which wasn’t a very cordial one. After that Kareena and Abhishek stopped acting opposite each other, and Shweta Nanda who is married into the Kapoor family had to do a balancing act. Finally it looks like all’s well. With the arrival of Aishwarya and Abhishek’s baby girl, the two families have decided to bury the hatchet. We saw the signs of it first at Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s baby shower, when both Ritu Nanda and Neetu Kapoor attended the event and gave their blessings. Now we hear that at a recent awards function, Jaya Bachchan and Karisma shared a hug full of genuine warmth. Karisma was even heard congratulating the veteran on turning grandmother once again. The two families also sat at adjoining tables throughout the evening. We wonder what Abhi and Lolo had to say to each other! Anyway, we are just glad that eight years after they broke up, there is finally peace between the two most prominent families of Bollywood. Hopefully, this means that we could get to see Abhishek share screen space with Ranbir Kapoor soon! Now, that would be exciting, won’t it?
