While addressing the Bollywood celebrities at the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel in Mumbai on Thursday evening, Netanyahu said, “Pyaare doston, namaskar. What an incredible pleasure it was meeting you sir! You are an amazing ambassador for Israel, you won our hearts today! You are an amazing ambassador for Israel, you won our hearts today! The reason for that is that the world loves Bollywood. The selfie had megastar Amitabh with son Abhishek and daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai, CBFC chief Prasoon Joshi, filmmaker Imtiaz Ali, Madhur Bhandarkar, Karan Johar and others. @SrBachchan @juniorbachchan @rajcheerfull @imbhandarkar @vivek_oberoi.” Other than the wish of the Israeli PM’s wish to break Hollywood selfie record with his Bollywood selfie, what grabbed attention was the coming together of former lovers Aishwarya Rai and Vivek Oberoi after more than a decade. Shalom. Will my Bollywood selfie beat @TheEllenShow Hollywood selfie at the Oscars? And this is probably the first time post their break up that we see them under the same roof. Though Aishwarya and Vivek never made their relationship public, both were often spotted together attending events and shows together in early 2000. 2018-01-19T11:27:13+00:00″>

I was glad to notice that master of ceremony at Israel cultural summit Mandira bedi did not use the word #bollywood in her speech nor @SrBachchan while welcoming Israel prime minister.
