Aishwarya Rai Bachchan hugs Rekha at an event

Bollywood gathered under one roof to celebrate the 100th birth anniversary of renowned Urdu poet Kaifi Azmi and father of noted actress Shaban Azmi. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Rekha also attended the event and both twined in white. The two gorgeous ladies greet each other warmly and also hugged one another.

Rekha looked gorgeous a white silk saree with huge earrings and tug roses on her hair. While Aishwarya wore a white and golden suit. The photo and video of the two hugging each other went viral on net.

Rekha and Aishwarya share a great camaraderie and earlier last year, Rekha had penned a letter to Aishwarya.

"A woman like you who is in harmony with her spirit is like a flowing river, never stagnant. She goes where she wants to without pretence; and arrives at her destination prepared to be herself and only herself.

"People may forget what you said, they may also forget what you did but they will never forget how you made them feel. You are a living example that courage is the most important of all the virtues because without courage, you can't practice any other virtue consistently! Your deep strength and pure energy introduces you even before you speak!" She wrote.

In the letter, she appreciated Aishwarya for her career choice.
"The worst thing you did was to be present with the present' with gratitude. You pursued the things you loved doing; and then did them so well that people can't take their eyes off you! You on your own are enough with nothing to prove to anyone. Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but by the moments that take our breath away."
