Break-ups are hard, but messy break-ups are the ones that haunt ex-couple and their family and friends for a long, long time. Awkward is an understatement in this situation, especially if you're a celebrity whose every move is scrutinized under the media glare. Here are some of the instances where the celebs managed to slip out of the situation in the most gracious manner:
1. Kareena Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor
When this ex-couple shared the stage during the movie, Udta Punjab's promotions, it looked like the two had buried the hatchets. But, their appearance at an award function red carpet showed a different picture entirely. Shahid Kapoor was on the red carpet talking to other actors when Kareena suddenly made an entry. Her publicist noticed this and quickly moved her out of the place.
2. Katrina Kaif and Ranbir Kapoor
At Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli's Mumbai reception, this ex-couple's common friends helped them avoid an embarrassing encounter. Karan Johar is Ranbir and Katrina's common friend. When Katrina was greeting Karan, Ranbir also walked into the venue. A leading tabloid reported a source saying,"As if on cue, Ayan came to the rescue and whisked Ranbir away to avoid the situation from getting awkward."
3. Anushka Sharma and Ranveer Singh
Usually ex-lovers try not to cross each other's path and let the time heal what's broken. But, that's not an option when you're working in the same movie. However, Anushka and Ranveer managed to get out of this tricky situation. Their schedules were such that Ranveer shot his scenes first and then Anushka joined the shoot after wrapping up the NH10. Even in the pictures posted by Priyanka Chopra on her social media, the two were not seen together.
4. Aishwarya Rai and Vivek Oberoi
It is said that you should't wash your dirty laundry in public, but this is one Bollywood relationship where this rule was defied and how! An ugly break-up happened in front of the media and was discussed in every household. Aishwarya Rai and Vivek Oberoi moved ahead but the this relationship never wiped from the public memory. After 14 long years, the ex-lovers were finally seen together in one picture. Karan Johar was standing between Aishwarya and Vivek, making things less awkward. Also, Aishwarya can be seen in the picture with her husband, Abhishek Bachchan.
