They may have had their differences but trust Kareena Kapoor Khan and Shahid Kapoor to handle run-ins with grace.
An awkward incident was averted at a recent awards show on Friday night, when exes Kareena Kapoor Khan and Shahid Kapoor almost clashed on the red carpet. However, the former lovers handled the scene with class.
A source reveals, “First, Shahid arrived on the red carpet and he got some pictures taken with Varun Dhawan and Pratiek Babbar. Then, he went on to speak with them. While he was chatting with them, Kareena entered. She posed for a few pictures and was about to give a byte when her PR manager realised that Shahid too was around to speak to the press.”
The source adds, “He quickly got Kareena to move out. The actress apologised to the media and went off. Later, Shahid addressed the press. To his credit, Shahid patiently waited till Kareena left, and then quietly walked up to give his bytes.” That’s one amicable move!
The two, who were in a relationship, called it quits while filming Jab We Met. Ever since then, the two have been going out of their way to avoid each other. Even as they worked for Udta Punjab, they didn’t share a single screen together.
Only last year, when the duo was promoting Udta Punjab, the awkwardness was there for all to see. They even avoided being seen in a single frame together. Alia Bhatt propped herself neatly between the exes during a promotional event, just so that the two wouldn’t be snapped together.
Even when the exes were up for press interviews, they timed their schedules so that they wouldn’t have to bump into each other. Later, when Shahid and Alia hosted a success bash, Kareena was conspicuous by her absence.
But it looks like parenthood has changed the exes, and a distant but respectful relationship has been built by the two. Kareena even congratulated Shahid on the birth of his daughter Misha last year and it seems like this grace and class has extended to their chance meetings now.
