Priyanka on a hugging spree?
Arch rival Priyanka Chopra made the first move and hugged Kareena Kapoor at the same event
Did they fake it or was it for real? Arch rivals Kareena Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra yet again did an all is well act at the entertainment awards event in Andheri on Sunday night.

It was PC who made the first move and couldn't resist giving Bebo a warm hug. The Kapoor girl taken unawares was forced to extend a warm hug too.
Everyone in Bollywood knows that the two stars are not on talking terms. Professional rivalry apart, there is also a personal angle. Bebo's ex flame Shahid Kapoor had an on-off relationship with PC.
PC hugs Kareena Kapoor
Both the actresses avoid being seen together at the same place and at the same time. And in the past, there have been instances of how one would avoid having a run on with the other.
Says a source, "Kareena arrived late and made her way to the reserved table. For a while she was sitting alone. Later director Madhur Bhandarkar was seen with her at the table. Meanwhile PC was seated a few tables away waiting for her performance.
Says an onlooker, "As soon as she saw Kareena seated, Priyanka walked up to her and bent over her to give her a warm hug. Bebo reciprocated. For a few moments they exchanged niceties and PC went back to her seat."
Adds the onlooker, "Everyone was taken by surprise by PC's move." Last year, at the annual police mela PC had apparently gone up to Bebo and said, "Let's forget what has happened and begin anew." Both had also danced together on stage with Shah Rukh Khan.
But the buzz that did the rounds at that time was that Bebo had given PC her famous Poo look (from Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Ghum) meaning 'Whatever!' and continued with what she was doing.
At that time, it did not look like the Kapoor girl was in the mood to forget. Did she this time? Time will tell.
