Bollywood from the outside appears quite a happy place. But to be fair, ‘All that glitters is not gold”. While most actors come across as friends with each other on-screen or in these fancy awards night, at times that’s actually not the case. Especially, female actors, in quest of moving higher up the ranks, tend to form more enemies rather than making good friends. A lot of top female actors have held disagreements at various points in life. It does not take too long for these disagreements to turn into cat-fights.
Here’s a look at 5 Bollywood actresses that are sworn enemies:
1. Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif:
Two of the most popular Bollywood divas, Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif have had a hostile relationship for quite some time now. It all began after both the Bollywood actresses were believed to be dating their co-star Ranbir Kapoor at different times in their career. It was reported that Ranbir had cheated on Deepika for Katrina, with whom he broke up to construct relations with her girlfriend Alia Bhatt. Even after such a long time, both the leading ladies prefer to maintain distance even when they are spotted together at any function.
2. Priyanka Chopra and Kareena Kapoor:
Priyanka Chopra and Kareena Kapoor, who have to mend their relations after appearing together on ‘Koffee with Karan’ were once two of the biggest rivals. Yet again, it was spurred due to a common man in their lives, Shahid Kapoor. Two of them were believed to be dating Shahid at different points in their career. As a result, their relations between them turned from bad to worse.
3. Madhuri Dixit and Sridevi:
Both Sridevi and Madhuri Dixit began their acting career during the same period in the 1980s. While Madhuri entered a few years later than Sridevi, she was still able to hogg all the limelight and the attention even at such an early age in her career. This didn’t transpire well with Sridevi as the two great contemporaries female actors in the industry soon turned rivals at the box office. Both of them were immensely talented at their dancing skills and were easily accepted by the Indian audience. There was always a sense of rivalry even when two of them Bollywood stage on fire.
4. Priyanka Chopra and Katrina Kaif:
The beginning of this enmity was instigated at an event where both Priyanka Chapra and Katrina Kaif made their presence felt together. While both of them wanted to be the showstopper at that event, it was Katrina who was eventually chosen as the showstopper. In her defence, Priyank later said that it was her greatness that she opted back to allow Katrina to claim all the fame. However, ever since, both the actors haven’t been spotted together at any event.
5. Jaya Bachchan and Rekha:
One of the most popular stories of mutual discontentment takes up back to 1970s and 80s when both Jaya Bachchan and Rekha fell for the same man. While it was the charismatic look of Amitabh Bachchan that made them fall in love with him, Jaya managed to safeguard her marriage by convincing him to no more sign roles opposite Rekha.
