On Hrithik Roshan’s birthday (January 9), Mumbai Mirror reported that the party carried on at Shah Rukh Khan’s house Mannat late into the night.
He not only played a good host but also brought two warring factions together - Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s ex-boyfriend Vivek Oberoi.
We hear that like a true gentleman, he helped ease the discomfort between Abhishek and Vivek. Shah Rukh sensed the tension and managed to create a lighter atmosphere, without explicitly making his intentions known.
A source close to Vivek says, “Shah Rukh certainly did not want any of his guests to feel tense at his home. Besides, he had personally invited Abhishek, Aishwarya, Vivek and many others to Mannat, when they met at Hrithik’s birthday party in Juhu.”
It may be recalled that only a day prior to this, Vivek had taken the initiative to speak to Aishwarya’s father-in-law Amitabh at an awards function saying, “Sir, it has been a long time, aap to aaj kal baat hi nahin karte.” In turn, Amitabh had given him a patient ear and also shared a few laughs with him.
