It is to be noted that this is the first time Karisma Kapoor has shared a photo with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. In the last few years, they have attended several events and parties together, but they rarely got photographed together. It seems like Manish Malhotra's Diwali bash brought these two gorgeous divas from the tinsle villa together and made them pose for the cameras.

It is no secret that before Abhishek Bachchan got married to Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, he was in a relationship with Karisma Kapoor. The duo dated for several years before they got engaged. Abhishek’s sister Shweta Bachchan is married to Karisma Kapoor’s cousin Nikhil Nanda. However, in 2003, they two parted their ways and reports of their broken engagement surfaced in media. 

Soon after their engagement broke, Karisma Kapoor tied the knot with his friend and Delhi-based businessman Sanjay Kapur. However, their marriage could not survive for long and they headed for separation some years later. The former couple share two children together - Samaira and Kiaan. 

On the other hand, Abhishek dated Aishwarya Rai Bachchan for a few years and later tied the knot with her in 2007. Together, they have a daughter Aaradhya Bachchan.
