A few months ago, they could barely stand each other. But this is a sign that things have indeed changed. At the recently concluded Filmfare Awards, former lovers Kareena Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor spoke to each other rather fondly.
It should be noted that when the two met two years ago at an award function and almost bumped into one another, they had turned the other way to avoid any contact.
But the season it seems is shifting. With both, Kareena and Shahid settled in steady relationships, the former with Saif Ali Khan and the latter with Priyanka Chopra, it seems that they are ready to let what betided remain a thing of the past.
This is how it happened: when Kareena was walking out after her performance was over, on her way out she noticed Shah Rukh Khan and Shahid having a conversation. In another time, Kareena would have just brushed past (and then perhaps have explained why she did this to SRK, who is a good friend).
But not this time. She went up and said hi to both the parties. Shahid was pleasantly surprised. The conversation continued for a short while. When contacted, Saif picked up the phone and said, "Yes, Kareena did speak to Shahid at Filmfare. They met as one should."
It should be noted that barely a few weeks ago, an excerpt from KJo's Koffee with Karan had Priyanka scoffing that she didn't think that Kareena would have laptop (the naughty director was stoking Chops for an aside, given the cold vibes the two share).
To this, Kareena had responded with something like, "I may not have a laptop but at least accept that I am beautiful." All these catty comments could well be a thing of the past, if what transpired between Sasha and Bebo, and Saif's own mature handling of this rapprochement, is anything to go by. Let bygones be bygones. That's what makes life truly beautiful!
Make-up Season Continues
Meanwhile, Bebo and Sallu have buried the hatchet too. The hidden truth is that they were just cordial to each other when they worked last in Main Aur Mrs Khanna (2009).
Apparently, during the making of Main Aur Mrs Khanna, Sallu and Bebo would only exchange a bland 'hello'. "Kareena was supposed to do David Dhawan's Yeh Hai Jalwa (2002), which starred Salman.
It was a closely guarded secret. Due to some reason, Amisha Patel replaced her. Thereafter, all was never well between Salman and Kareena.
They have met on several occasions after that, but it was formal at best." Only a few days ago, Sallu and Bebo cleared the air while shooting for Bodyguard in Pune and are now back to being real good friends.
