Have Kareena and Priyanka called a truce?
With Kareena and Priyanka seemingly bonding with each other at Imran Khan's recent party, could their long-lived acrimony have come to an end?
Most Bollywood heroines over the ages have stayed true to the adage that two actresses of the same league can never be friends. However, looks like Kareena Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra could prove it as a thing of the past. If rumours are to be believed, the two ladies could well be on their way to call for truce. But questions is, ultimately will they or won’t they?
Both PC and Bebo have often engaged in a war of words, whether be it in front of the media and even telly chat shows. They have been at loggerheads about not just their professional lives but also their personal lives. The two have apparently even shared boyfriends (read Shahid Kapoor). However, a source present at Imran Khan’s recent housewarming party, where both Kareena and Priyanka were invited, states that the two apparently shared a very warm conversation on the floor.
The source says, “Everyone present in the room was surprised to see Kareena and Priyanka talking non-stop with each other. They were in each other’s company for more than an hour and had even taken a corner of the house to themselves. They kept on giggling and laughing throughout.” Apparently, there was no other person who was part of their conversation. “They just came face to face and started talking,” adds the source. What remains to be seen is if their newfound friendship will carry over to the next year as well. Let’s wait and watch.
Kareena and Priyanka have not exactly been the best of friends for a long time. A sneak-peek into their colourful history together…
2007: The two worked in Aitraaz together, post which they heaped praises on each other at every media interaction possible.
December 2007: Kareena took a dig at Priyanka by stating that she did not consider any of her contemporaries to be ‘actresses’ except Rani Mukerji. Priyanka issued a dignified response saying, "Bebo is a more senior and hopefully more mature actress than me.” December 2010: Kareena, once again, ridiculed Priyanka on Koffee With Karan for her accent, prompting PC to comment on Bebo’s then-beau, now hubby Saif Ali Khan’s accent as well.
January 2011: There were some signs of a patch-up during an event for the Mumbai police. During her performance, Priyanka roped in Shah Rukh Khan, Saif Ali Khan and Kareena on the stage to jive along with her.
September 2012: Even during the promotions of Kareena’s Heroine, the two actresses made sarcastic comments about the fates of the other’s films at the box office and award events.
