Some ghosts are difficult to exorcise. One such rose from the dead at the 54th Filmfare Awards night at Yashraj Studios. Big B was sitting next to Aishwarya Rai, Abhishek Bachchan and Shahrukh Khan (in the same order) when Rekha walked to SRK to exchange greetings.
Seeing Abhishek next to SRK, Rekha could not stop planting a neat peck on the cheek of Bachchan junior. Then she turned to Ash, who rose from her seat and hugged Rekha.
Since Big B was the only one of the group left, it was obvious that Rekha would at least exchange greetings (if not a kiss or a hug) with the senior Bachchan. But before Rekha could free from the embrace of the Bachchan bahu, Big B stood up from his seat and walked away.
Must say everyoneâ€™s eyes at the venue were glued to Rekha as she hobnobbed with the Bachchans. If only Big B hadnâ€™t walked away, we might have had a different headline in Sundayâ€™s tabloids.
Close but no cigar!
