Old rivals Deepika Padukone and Kangana Ranaut are nowhere close to burying the axe – in fact, given a chance, they would opt to bury the said weapon in each other! The Arctic vibes between the two was in evidence at the trials of Irrfan Khan’s MADAARI, regarding which Dippy had made detailed enquiries. Apparently after finding out who would be attending the screening on that day, the leggy actress chose to watch it another day with beau Ranveer Singh for company, instead! Anything to avoid the inevitable face-off with Kangy! However, there’s buzz that Deepika could have stayed away that day also because Amitabh Bachchan, who she had a run-in with during PIKU, would be attending! See how complicated even a simple film screening can get??
Now Dippy has gone and rubbed another someone the wrong way and it’s none other than Kareena Kapoor Khan. Apparently her recent statement declaring that she was not married and not pregnant either, has not done down well with KKK. The hottie who is soon to be a mommy feels that it is being insinuated that she denied her pregnancy. She’s also seeing it as a put-down of sorts, to suggest that actresses who are in the family way are not viable options any more as far as filmmakers and audiences go, or that they are not serious about their careers as their focus shifts. Which is what is making Kareena out to prove that she can still rock it, baby bump and all, when she begins shooting for her next with Sonam Kapoor.
Ms. Padukone is not going to be winning any brownie points with Priyanka Chopra either, who she has reportedly been embroiled in a cold war with. Buzz goes that Deepika is trying to latch on to PC’s success in the west, by signing up with Priyanka’s old Hollywood agents, the Creative Artists Agency (CAA). PC has moved on to the William Morris Endeavors Entertainment firm, but this appears to be Dippy’s attempt to grab attention like PC so successfully did globally. Fact is, with no more films in her kitty after xXx: THE RETURN OF XANDER CAGE, the agency is trying to tag Deepika’s name with Priyanka’s, by trying to show that DP is also in the running for all the roles that PC is being considered for. Now that could just melt all the ice and dangerously inflame Priyanka! Time for Dippy to take a chill pill, we say, and work at reducing that growing list of foes!
