Karisma Kapoor and Shweta Bachchan

Fifteen years ago, Karisma  Kapoor is  the woman Abhishek Bachchan  was to marry. They had a beautiful relationship which was the talk of the town. Their courtship and engagement came to  a sudden and  bitter end just a few months before their marriage, leaving  both the families exceedingly embittered. While the media speculated on the reasons, the Kapoors and Bachchans themselves kept a dignified silence. Even  the otherwise affable diplomatic and benign-spirited  patriarch  of  the Bachchan family  was so hurt  with the turn of events that he refused to  work with Kareena Kapoor in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Black. The film was eventually made with Rani Mukerji.

However, time healed the wounds and everyone moved on. While Abhishek got married to the gorgeous Aishwarya Rai, Karisma tied the knot with Delhi-based industrialist Sanjay Kapur though unfortunately, the marriage didn’t work out. Much water has flown under that proverbial bridge. And recently the industry saw a new surprise and pleasant bonding. Karisma attended Abhishek’s sister Shweta’s launch of her brand MxS in Mumbai last week and the two ladies were seen  bonding beautifully. It wasn’t just for the camera. “There was a sincere affection between them,” says an invitee at the event. “For years  no members  of  the Bachchan  family  spoke, let alone socialised  with Karisma.  Shweta has  rightly broken the ice. You can’t hold grudges in  life forever.”
