Salman and Aishwarya Rai spotted together

It was a gala event wherein the industry’s biggest and most glamorous stars made an appearance to congratulate the little master.

From Lata Mangeshkar to Aamir Khan to Salman Khan to Rani Mukherjee to Abhishek and Aishwarya Bachchan, all were present at the starry event.

Priyanka Chopra emceed the event and all the stars took their turn to speak about Sachin.

It was interesting to see Salman Khan seated in the same row as Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan. Salman sat next to Aamir and his wife Kiran Rao, just a few seats away from his ex, Aishwarya and her husband Abhishek, reports India Today.

Two stars, who would never be seen together, came close once again at the function.

Considering their infamous break-up, it could have been an uncomfortable situation for all those present there but it seems that the two stars were pretty much at ease.

What was even more interesting to watch was when Salman went up on stage to address Tendulkar and cracked some jokes, Aishwarya burst out laughing along with others in the audience.

But the joke and the laughter did not break the cold between the two. In spite of being seated close enough they chose not to look at each other. Salman did pay attention to Abhishek while he was talking, but choose to look away when it came to Aishwarya.

Courtesy Tendulkar the two stars at least came under the same roof and forgot their past for some time. And we think it's high time the two talented actors let the past go by and be friends again.
