Time for Salman Khan to hug Aishwarya Rai and be friends?

Salman Khan gives a tight hug to Abhishek Bachchan at an awards event in Mumbai.

It seems like Bollywood’s superstar Salman Khan is on a patch up spree. The superstar not just hugged arch rival Shah Rukh Khan at Guild Awards, but also exchanged a tight hug with Abhishek Bachchan.
So why not extend this warmth to Aishwarya Rai Bachchan?

Bollywood heartthrob Salman Khan and the beautiful Aishwarya Rai's (now Bachchan) love story was almost perfect.
When in love they painted the town red but when they broke-up both saw red.
The two actors spit venom at the mention of the other. 
Unlike Salman's other girlfriends Ash is not entertained by the actor or his family. It is known to all and sundry how Somu Ali, Sangeeta Bijlani, Katrina Kaif are still in touch with Salman and are regular fixtures in his family functions.
Salman has never spoken about his relationships in public but when Aishwarya alleged him of being violent and physical, Salman dismissed the allegations in an interview.
It's been over a decade that the two have not been cordial to each other, even when Aishwarya is now happily married to Abhishek Bachchan.
Shouldn't they be friends again, their issue is long forgotten and it's water under the bridge.
Last year we saw Bachchan patriarch share some pictures on social networking site when he met Salman during a shoot.
He was seen hugging Salman Khan. The latter’s alleged rendezvous with his daughter-in-law seems to affect Amitabh Bachchan the least.
Big B (fondly known) enquired about the nerve problem Khan has been suffering from. The two chatted away with great camaraderie and revere.
A lesson for Khan and Big B’s gorgeous daughter-in-law. Bury the hatchet and move on guys!

Earlier Salman shared a good relationship with Abhishek, but the two avoided each other after Aishwarya got married to Bachchan Junior. 
They would be cordial when they came face to face, that would be the end of story.
But it was the first instance after Aishwarya’s marriage when the two came face to face at Guild Awards and Salman hugged Abhishek on stage in full public view.
Not just the son, Salman was seen chatting with Sr Bachchan back stage having a good time.
Salman seems to have decided to let go of his foes, forgive, forget and hug them.. one and all.
So when is Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's turn?
