“Two actresses can never be friends,” so goes the age-old adage in Bollywood. It is said that two top heroines can never see eye-to-eye, and two contemporary leading ladies will never be able to get along. What ensues are catfights and women wars, which leave everyone shocked at the ferocity at which these lovely ladies battle it out.
In Bollywood especially, women wars have been common since time immemorial. Heroines have always tried to be one up on each other, and in the process end up stepping on each other’s toes. A whole lot of mudslinging and tantrum throwing ensues in the chaos.
Some of the most popular, explosive catfights in recent times have involved Bollywood’s A-list heroines. Be it Katrina Kaif, Deepika Padukone, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Rani Mukherjee or Kareena Kapoor; everyone seems to have their own tale of discord and disharmony.
Katrina Kaif and Deepika Padukone are the latest heroines to be locked in combat. Eating into each other’s space has been a constant with them, but now the fight has escalated because Deepika has reportedly bagged Imtiaz Ali’s next project with Ranbir Kapoor, which Katrina was vying for.
Said a source, commenting about the latest development in this particular catfight: “Katrina was keen to do Imtiaz’s next as she’s never worked with him before. Also, she was the first actress to make a hit pair with RK and she wants to recreate that on-screen. especially now that he is being touted as the next best thing. Besides, working with him would also mean spending some quality time with her beau. Kat was crestfallen when she heard she had lost the role to Dips and now she is sulking.”
