Karan Johar is a lucky guy! After, all he managed to get the legendary beauties of Bollywood, well not all but some of them for sure, in one frame along with himself. And he has company in another lucky dude, Manish Malhotra. The above picture was taken during Sridevi’s 54th birthday party. It was lovely to see all the gorgeous divas of Bollywood – Sridevi, Shabana Azmi, Rekha, Tina Munim, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Rani Mukerji and Vidya Balan – under one roof. Wonder the kind of gossip they had to share with each other!
While this pic has been going viral for all the right reasons, there is more to see in the eye that just some lovely ladies getting together to make the frame gorgeous. As trivia time, here are 9 details you might not have noticed about the picture…
# Out of all the ladies in the group, Karan Johar has only directed two in his movies – Rani Mukerji in his first movie Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in his last one, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.
# Rani Mukerji was often considered Aishwarya’s hubby Abhishek Bachchan’s best heroine, thanks to their chemistry in Yuva, Bas Itna Sa Khwab Hai and Bunty Aur Babli. There was also a rumour that they were dating then.
# Strangely Sridevi and Rekha have never done a movie together apart from both having cameos in late Feroz Khan’s Jaanbaaz, though they never share a scene together. Sridevi played Feroz Khan’s dead girlfriend while Rekha was in the song, Pyar Lo Pyar Do.
#Both Sridevi and Rekha had played shapeshifting snakes in Nagina/Nigahein and Shesh Nag respectively.
# Tina Munim has worked with both Rekha and Shabana Azmi in Deedar-E-Yaar and Suraag respectively. Rekha and Shabana Azmi also worked with each other in a couple of movies like Ek Hi Bhool and Raaste Pyar Ke.
# Save for Tina Munim and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, the rest of people in the picture made cameos in Shah Rukh Khan’s Om Shanti Om. But OSO started off with a song from Karz, which starred Tina Munim, while Aishwarya’s hubby and pa-in-law, Abhishek and Amitabh Bachchan, had cameos in the movie.
# While all the actresses in the above pic have been married at some point, Tina Munim is the only actress who has stayed away from movies after her marriage (to Anil Ambani)
# The pic has three National Award winners in Vidya Balan (The Dirty Picture), Rekha (Umrao Jaan) and Shabana Azmi (five times; Ankur, Arth, Khandar, Paar and Godmother).
# The only leading Bollywood hero who acted with all the actresses in the above picture is Amitabh Bachchan. He has also worked with Manish Malhotra and Karan Johar, so that’s everyone in the pic!
Next time, let’s get Madhuri, Juhi, Deepika, Priyanka, Alia etc. in there too!
