The Amitabh-Rekha saga refuses to die down. While both Jaya and Abhishek Bachchan have always been cordial towards veteran actress Rekha, Aishwarya went a step ahead by addressing the ‘Silsila’ actress as ‘maa’ at the recently held Stardust awards.

Aishwarya, who addresses her father-in-law as Paa, was on stage to receive the Power Packed Performer Award for impressive comeback in Jazbaa. Handing her the trophy was Rekha. As soon as Aishwarya reached the stage, she bent down to touch Rekha’s feet. After blessing her, Rekha hugged Aishwarya and handed her the award and said, “I am honoured to give her the award and I hope I can give it to you for many more years.”

As a stunned audience looked on, Amitabh Bachchan, who was seated in the audience looked cool and composed. Aishwarya also dedicated the award to her darling daughter Aaradhya and said the award is a symbol of celebrating motherhood.

While Amitabh and Rekha have rarely acknowledged each other on public platforms, the former’s spouse Jaya was seen hugging and greeting the later at Star Screen awards. Both Jaya and Rekha were also  seen seated next to each other.
