The rivalry between Deepika Padukone & Katrina Kaif is not just because of the common denominator, Ranbir Kapoor. News of them replacing each other in movies often surface. But things have taken ugly turns since Deepika has made in into Hollywood.
Recently, there were also reports suggesting that Deepika Padukone is apparently miffed with filmmaker Aanand L Rai after he approached Katrina Kaif for his next film opposite Shah Rukh Khan. This time round, it came as a shocker to Katrina Kaif when she was replaced by Loreal as brand ambassador.
While some assert that Katrina left because she wanted to launch her own cosmetics line, it began to be questioned as a face-saving tactic when no announcement regarding the launch was made. A source close to Katrina told DNA, “Let’s talk facts: The international cosmetic brand that signed Katrina doesn’t let go of its brand ambassadors – be it Aishwarya Rai Bachchan or Sonam Kapoor either. Katrina was with them for two years, but when an opportunity to launch her own line of cosmetics presented itself, Kat was interested. She did the ethical thing and told the international brand that she wanted to opt out as it would mean a conflict of interest. She could have continued without anybody knowing.”
While many speculate that Deepika and her team were trying very hard to associate with the brand since a long time. Katrina’s associates have accused Deepika’s PR Team for spreading false rumours, “Why is there insecurity about Katrina? Wonder who DP’s advisers are, who are behaving like this? One could understand if you don’t have anything. But when you do, what is the need to pull down others to push yourself up?”
According to few reports, both Katrina and Deepika being fitness freaks, workout at Yasmeen Karachiwala’s gym and though both the actresses workout at different times, sometimes they have to reshuffle because of events and shooting time but the twist in the tale is that both these actresses go out of their way to ensure that they don’t land up at the gym at the same time to prevent any awkwardness. So before the actresses head out to the gym, the managers call ahead to check if the coast is clear, and if not then the plan is changed.
Well, we really do not hope that they would bury the hatchet. Guess, this is working for the big bad world of Bollywood, pitting the two gorgeous ladies constantly against each other and getting a kick out of it.
