On Saturday night, Aishwarya Rai's parents came together with the Bachchan family, minus Jaya, for a very special screening of Saawariya at Yashraj Films. Jaya was unable to attend as she was unwell.

Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Sonam Kapoor were present for the occasion. But the film's leading man Ranbir Kapoor missed the chance to watch the film with the Bachchans because he was at work. As luck would have it he was shooting in the vicinity for Yashraj Films's next.

Ranbir rushed to the screening just before it began. Amitabh Bachchan, who attended the Indian Television Academy awards, earlier that evening, was on time as always. While Abhishek and Aishwarya sat in one corner, the film's nervous director Sanjay Bhansali could be seen huddled nervously with the Big B, who couldn't take his eyes off the screen.

The next morning, Amitabh sent chocolates and a beautifully-worded letter to both Ranbir and Sonam. "It's the most beautiful gift I've received in my life," gushes Sonam "It's hard to believe the praise that Bachchan saab has lavished on me. I don't deserve it," said an emotional Ranbir.
