No Khan’s in Aishwarya-Abhishek Marrage?

Ahead of the India’s much awaited marriage between Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai, news is being published regularly in print and electronic media. The recent news is that Bachchan family has not invited any of the Khan’s of Bollywood to the big marriage ceremony. You can give your logic that Shah Rukh Khan has a cool relationship with Amitabh Bachchan and Salman Khan had affair with Aishwarya Rai. Then, what about Aamir Khan, Fardeen Khan, Zayed Khan?

Well, it has been said from Bachchan family that they do not want to have big party due to the illness of Amitabh Bachchan’s mother Teji Bachchan. Bollywood Mantra reported:

Jaya Bachchan turned 59 and some of the privileged guests included Kirron Kher, Apoorva Lakhia, Rohan Sippy etc. Recently there were plenty of rumours circulating that Shahrukh Khan as well as Salman Khan’s families have been invited for the wedding. However according to sources none of the Khans have been invited and the reason cited by the Bachchans is the illness of Amitabh Bachchan's mother Teji Bachchan. The Bachchan’s don’t wish to have a grand wedding out of respect to Teji Bachchan. None of the other Khans too from bollywood like Fardeen, Zayed or Saif Ali Khan have been extended an invitation. However Shahrukh himself is extremely candid about the fact that he has not been invited for the Ash-Abhi wedding, SRK says “I did not meet them post the show, neither have they invited me to their wedding. Regardless I wish them the best.”

Even Salman Khan or his family has not been invited for the wedding of the year. Recently there were rumours that Salim Khan who has written several successful scripts for Amitabh during his career earlier was invited, but Salim Khan too claims that this is untrue. Salman too has not been invited obviously due to his past friction with Aishwarya Rai. As for Aamir Khan not being invited it comes as no surprise as he quite reclusive from the rest of the film industry and always maintains his distance on a personal note. However Aishwarya Rai had attended Fardeen Khan and Zayed Khan’s wedding, but unfortunately these two families have also not yet received an invitation.

I can not say if the illness of Amitabh Bachchan’s mother is the only reason of not inviting any of the Khans. However, it is well-presumed that some of the recent incidents make people think differently. Anyway, there are about 9 days to go to the marriage day and it is enough time to invite anybody who have not been invited yet.
