MUMBAI: After a long hatchet relation, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan found a friend in actor Rani Mukerji who visited Rai's house and consoled her after her (Aishwarya) father's demise.
Though it was surprising for Indian film industry but everyone felt happy of ending such bitter relation between two stars.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's father Krishnaraj Rai succumbed to his illness and passed away on March 18, 2017.
Industry friends of Aishwarya were by her side to support her during these trying times which included Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol, Twinkle Khanna and more but there was one shocking inclusion that surprised all. It was none other than Rani Mukerji, as confirmed by a source close to Aishwarya, Pinkvilla reports.
"Aishwarya was visited at home by many of her friends which included Rani Mukerji, Mana Shetty (Suniel Shetty's wife) and Kokilaben Ambani who consoled her," quoting sources Pinlvilla added.
This surely was surprising because of the past between Aishwarya and Rani because of Rai's husband Abhishek Bachchan. Abhishek was reportedly dating Rani Mukerji and they were apparently going very strong but ultimately they broke up. There were many rumoured theories as to why they broke up but we still don't know the actual reason.
Ultimately, Abhishek ended up marrying his beloved crush Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and they now have a daughter Aaradhya Bachchan. Meanwhile, Rani got hitched in a secret ceremony to filmmaker Aditya Chopra and they have a daughter Adira Chopra.
It's nice to know that Rani and Aishwarya have buried the hatchet and are very cordial with each other.
Meanwhile, there were also reports of Aishwarya being miffed with filmmaker Karan Johar for not attending her dad's funeral but sources close to the actor dismissed the rumours and stated, "Karan shares a great equation with both Aishwarya and Abhishek.
So there is no question of anyone being upset with each other. Their bond is beyond all this. All these reports that Aishwarya is miffed with KJo are false. Nothing of that sort would have even crossed anyone's mind."
