Shocking! Did Aishwarya Rai Bachchan Refer to Rekha as 'Maa'?
We're really confused about the family dynamics here!
Let’s admit it, most of us have raised eyebrows at the unexpected embrace and peck-on-the-cheek exchanged between alleged rivals Jaya Bachchan and Rekha at the Star Screen Awards recently. After all, the two veteran actresses allegedly share a lot of history involving Mr. Bachchan, though nothing has been acknowledged publicly.
But, what came as a shock this time is when Rekha went up on stage at the Sansui Stardust Awards 2016 to present an award to Bachchan bahu Aishwarya Rai for her striking performance in Jazbaa. Aishwarya unexpectedly referred to Rekha as ‘maa’ on stage in front of the national audience, reported an article in DNA!
During the telecast of the event recently, when Rekha gave Ash the award, she said without a hint of hesitation, "It's great to receive it from maa." To this, Rekha replied as quoted in the DNA article, "I hope I can come and present this to you for many more years." Great feeling shared between the two actresses we’re sure, but like us the world too wanted to know Big B’s reaction as the cameras panned and focused on him!
We wonder how this episode will be remembered by the film fraternity in the years to come. For starters we’d like to know how the Bachchan family reacted to this, don’t you?
