Selfie is surely a mandatory thing on every occasion these days and, not only the common people but the viral habit has taken celebrities to its cusp as well. Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who was in Mumbai attending the Shalom Bollywood event recreated the Ellen DeGeneres’ Oscar moment at the gala evening. At the event which took place in Mumbai, top stars from the industry were present, including Amitabh Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai, Abhishek Bachchan, and filmmaker Karan Johar.

“I want everyone in Indian and Israel to know about the phenomenal friendship between our countries. So I’ve an idea. One of the most viral pictures took place at the Oscars where several celebrities took a selfie together,” he said. “So I want all the Bollywood actors, directors, producers present here to join me right now for a selfie so millions of people can see the great friendship between the two countries,” Netanyahu added.

Then one of the most iconic Oscar moment was yet again created. The selfie also included the Israeli PM, his wife Sara, Abhishek Bachchan, Amitabh Bachchan, Vivek Oberoi, Karan Johar, Aishwarya Rai etc. It was like a reunion for once rumoured lovers Aishwarya and Vivek who shared the frame again after years, all thanks to Netanyahu.

At the event, Bachchan gave the keynote address where he spoke about how, from a time when acting in films was looked down upon, today Bollywood has become a parallel culture. Bachchan, 75, said when “we as a community watch films in a darkened hall, we never ask the caste or creed, or colour or religion of the person sitting next to us. We enjoy the same film, laugh at the same joke, cry at the same emotion. In a world where we see humanity disintegrating in front of us, cinema is perhaps (among) the few yet prominent entities that bring people together.”

Aishwarya and Vivek Oberoi were rumoured to be dating each other but later parted ways. Aishwarya then went on to marry Abhishek Bachacha and Vivek Oberoi to settled and married Priyanka Alva.
