Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha's rumoured affair is still a hot topic of discussion, but in a hush tone. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's endearing comment at the recently-concluded Sansui Stardust Awards may have just fanned old flames.

According to a DNA report, the former beauty queen, on receiving the Power Packed Performer Award for her impressive comeback in Sanjay Gupta's "Jazbaa" from the yesteryear actress, said: "It's great to receive it from maa."

While the hoopla around this incident is massive and some have said how the statement may not go down well in the Bachchan household, but recent pictures of Jaya Bachchan hugging Rekha at another awards ceremony speak of how everything's okay and there's no bad blood anymore.

However, that wasn't the only moment maker, Shah Rukh Khan serenading Kajol to "Gerua" was one of the most lauded and appreciated performances of the night. It even got a standing ovation. Also, SRK made a sarcastic remark that may have caused host Farah Khan a few burns.

The filmmaker asked SRK to mouth a romantic dialogue, which apparently she had not written. SRK, being the witty, said had she done so, their film "Happy New Year" would have been successful. "Agar Tum likh leti to humari Happy New Year film chal jati," Bollywood Life quoted the superstar as saying.

Arjun Kapoor's unscripted jig during Sonam Kapoor's performance was another highlight. Salman Khan falling off his chair laughing to Manish Paul's jokes made for a good moment as well.
