Aishwarya Rai Avoids Facing Salman Khan At 17th Annual Star Screen Awards
Bollywood starlet Aishwarya Rai is smart enough to handle even an awkward situation with poise and sensibility. The smartness of the actress was recently seen when she smartly avoided coming face to face with her ex Salman Khan.
It so happened that Mrs Bachchan and Sallu were attending the 17th Annual Star Screen Awards and Rai was waiting for her performance to be announced backstage and in a bid to relax she bumped into a lounge but walked out of the room quickly leaving the onlookers confused.
An onlooker quoted, “The closing act of the awards was performed by Aishwarya on many of her popular hits. As she reached the backstage much ahead of time for her performance, she decided to rest at the nearby lounge till her performance was announced. But before Ash could enter the lounge she bumped into Vidya Balan and the two exchanged pleasantries for some time.”
“After her conversation Ash went inside, glanced around and was seen walking out of the room swiftly. Ash stood quietly outside and refused to budge till her performance was announced,” the source added.
The reason behind Aishwarya’s sudden exit from the room was none other than Salman Khan who was sitting in the lounge with few of his friends.
"It was obvious that Salman was inside (the lounge) but Ash with her usual poise, assessed a potentially embarrassing situation and left quickly thus averting it completely. After Salman left, a crew member rushed to Aishwarya and told her that she could now probably go and relax at the lounge but Ash refused and stayed outside," the source said.
The source also added that Salman was unaffected with Ash’s presence. "Salman has moved on and has no issues about bumping into anyone anywhere. He was relaxing with some friends and when he spotted Ash, he appeared unmoved and continued with his conversation.”
Well, good that Salman has moved on and Ash is also playing safe in order to avoid making some big headlines with the actor.
