Ash and the Bachchans boycott Shahrukh’s New Year bash
The cold war between SRK and Amitabh Bachchan seems to be getting hotter by the day and the New Year too does not seem a good enough reason for the two bollywood biggies to bury the hatchet. Recently according to sources SRK had refused to do an extended cameo in Ravi Chopra’s Bhootnath which stars Amitabh as the main lead due to the on going rivalry between the two of them. Now it seems like Amitabh is getting back at the actor by boycotting SRK’s New Year bash.
Shahrukh Khan and his family brought in the New Year with a lavish filmi bash which saw the who’s who of bollywood attend the function. SRK hosted a huge party for his bollywood friends to bring in New Year at his bungalow, Mannat. In fact Shahrukh, wife Gauri and even good friend Karan Johar played the perfect hosts and personally invited everyone from bollywood. Naturally when King Khan invites everyone and that to personally, everyone and anyone who is someone in bollywood turns up for one of the most happening party’s in town. The Khan couple welcomed everyone into their home, there was fun, laughter, dancing, eating and just having a great time. Rani Mukherjee, Salman Khan, Vivek Oberoi etc all made it a point to drop in at the party.
According to sources SRK and Gauri had personally invited Amitabh, Jaya and Abhishek to the party. Aishwarya Rai too was invited for the big party. Unfortunately the Bachchans were not in the mood to forgive SRK’s recent behaviour like refusing to do a cameo in the Bachchan film, replacing Amitabh in KBC etc. Even Ash skipped the party giving out a clear signal as to where her loyalties lie. Sources also claim that Ash first spent some quality time with her own family and then later joined the Bachchans in their family celebrations. However no one at the party not even SRK seemed surprised at the fact that the Bachchans did not turn up for his party. In fact with the way things have been going they would have actually been surprised to see them at SRK’s party.
Wonder how far the Shahrukh-Amitabh cold war will go in the New Year 2007. Let’s wait and watch!
