It was Karan Johar’s 50th birthday bash and as expected almost all the big Bollywood celebrities were spotted posing for shutterbugs on the red carpet as they entered the YRF Studio to join the party. While Karan is certainly not in the good books of the outsiders like Kangana Ranaut or Kartik Aaryan, he is very good friends with almost all the Khans, Bachchans, and Kapoors which is why all these people had gathered to wish their favourite person a happy birthday.
It was also the moment for exes to cross each other’s paths which were certainly unavoidable. From Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif to Salman and Aishwarya, many big celebs had to share the roof at the bash with their exes. And then there was a moment when friends who had a fall out came across each other. While some may not have talked or must have avoided each other, there were a few like Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Rani Mukerji who sent tongues wagging about a definite patch up.
It’s old news that Ash and Rani shared a good bond previously. However, when Rani replaced Ash in Chalte Chalte with Shah Rukh Khan without even having word with her good friend, things went sour between them. At that time Aishwarya was struggling with her infamous breakup with Salman Khan and that is when she was replaced by Rani and Preity in many projects.
It was also speculated that Rani and Abhishek had a thing going between them but things did not work out. So, after Aishwarya married junior Bachchan, Rani’s contact with the Bachchan family was strained. Reportedly, even Abhishek stopped working for YRF post-Dhoom 3 after it became obvious that Rani Mukerji will soon marry Aditya Chopra.
That can be one reason why Dhoom 4, which is the biggest franchise of YRF to date, never happened. Now, the clicks from Karan Johar’s bash showing Ash and Rani have surfaced which has once again triggered hope that if the two girls are back to being good friends, there might be a chance that Abhishek might give his nod for Dhoom 4.
Previously, he rejected the offer of Bunty Aur Bubbli 2 from YRF which starred Rani in the lead. The first movie from the franchise was a big hit but the sequel failed to impress the audience.
