Revealed: The Inside Details of How Deepika Padukone and Amitabh Bachchan Patched Up!
The two Piku actors had a fallout of sorts after Dippy forgot to invite Big B to the film's success party!
Most of the time we’re not even sure if the so-called star fights really happen or are just a figment of the imagination of overzealous gossipmongers. But when the stars themselves admit to goofing up, we do have to pay heed to the matter. For instance, the entire fiasco of Deepika Padukone forgetting to invite her Piku co-star and veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan to the Piku success bash shocked everyone in the industry! Plenty of eyebrows were raised; especially when Bachchan Sr admitted in an interview that he had not been invited to the success bash of the film he not only acted in, but also produced. Deepika’s defense was there had been a slip-up and that the senior actor had not been left out of the guest list on purpose.
But this awkwardness had to be put to an end and this time Dippy decided to make the first move. Several months later when Sony Motion Pictures had a party, Big B and Deepika were both there. All eyes were on the senior actor as he walked in, and Deepika was already present in the same room. A source who was present at the party said in an article in Bollywood Life, “It was big of Deepika to make the first move. He was talking to someone and his back was turned to her”.
“Deepika walked up to him, tapped his shoulder and said, ‘hello’. He turned around, saw her and while everyone waited with bated breath to see what would happen, he graciously said ‘hello’ and gave her a warm hug,” said the source.
And just like that, they were friends again!
