It’s almost time for Ganesha to say His goodbye to Mumbai and all the other cities He visits annually, with the customary noisy aarti, fuelled by many a yum peda. The popular elephant-headed deity does have a knack for bringing people together — encouraging bonhomie in much the same way as Christmas does. And so it was that Salman Khan hosted the Lord at his home in Mumbai, and many filmy folk drove across town for a ‘darshan’ (as one generally does when one megastar hosts another).
Amongst the guests, former flames Prateik and Amy Jackson came face to face at the Khan residence too — an encounter that did not escape Salman’s keen eye. While the exes said precious little to each other, except for well-mannered and mature hellos, Sallu had a fair bit more to say. Making a reference to reports that Prateik dated another Amy after the beauteous Ms. Jackson, Salman cut through the tension with his inimitable brand of humour.
For most folks, it’s tough to interact with an ex — and more so when your romance has been publicly documented. But when faced with a royal challenge, even Salman agrees that a little comedy goes a long way in diffusing stress.
