Since then the Bachchan family avoids bumping into Rekha in public events and parties. But Bachchan babu, Aishwarya Rai thinks otherwise as she always greets Rekha with a warm hug and a kiss on the cheek whenever they meet.
According to reports, mother-in-law Jaya is not happy with Aishwarya's closeness with Rekha. It was seen clearly during the screening of Amitabh's movie 102 Not Out.
As reported in the Deccan Chronicle, "All this affection towards the Bachchan family is very uncomfortable for them. Abhishek and Aishwarya are too polite not to reciprocate. But, Jayaji, who is not known to hide her feelings, makes her discomfort at Rekhaji's PDA quite obvious."
The daily also quoted as saying, "Both during and after the film, Rekha was heard praising it, especially Amitabh's performance."
Besides the Bachchan family and Rekha, actor Risha Kapoor and Neetu Singh, Ranbir Kapoor, Kunal Kapoor were seen at the screening.
102 Not Out is based on Saumya Joshis Gujarati play of the same title. In the movie, Rishi Kapoor portrays the character of Bachchan's 75-year-old son. The film is helmed by Umesh Shukla.
