Bollywood’s Cold War

We have seen that celebrities live a life of glamor and glitter. While on the surface it seems to be the ideal life for most people, there is much more to the life of any star. It is not always about success, fame, wealth and luxury. There are heartbreaks, competition, rivalries and other dark sides to this desirable life. We have seen people fight for no reason. We have witnessed friends falling apart. Let’s explore a few of these feuds that have been the talk of tinseltown in recent times.

Kajol and Karan Johar

The most shocking incident that shook the entertainment industry was perhaps the end to the friendship between Kajol and Karan Johar.

The problems between the two got worse when Ae Dil Hain Mushkil and Shivaay were produced. Kajol has been silent about the entire incident and refuses to divulge any details about the reason behind this tussle. The only thing that she said was that letting a relationship remain successful in the industry and outside is a challenge and it takes a lot of hard work, compromise and determination to maintain it. Ajay Devgan made the friendship hurl towards a speedy end by stating that Karan paid 25 lakhs to destroy Shivaay.

Karan wrote in his biography as a reaction to this event that he was deeply pained by the turn of events. Kajol commented on Twitter that she was shocked. This was the conclusion of such a deep friendship of over 25 years.

Katrina and Deepika

We have also seen how the actresses have been adversaries since the very inception of the film industry. We see negativity breeding between Katrina Kaif and Deepika Padukone. Not only are the rivals as professionals, they fight for a reason that is very personal- Ranbir Kapoor. Their hatred is so deep that they don’t see each other at their common gym, Yasmeen Karachiwala’s gym. They always communicate with the manager of the gym to set times in such as way that they never meet.

Alia and Shraddha

 

Another pair of actresses that don’t gel well is Alia Bhatt and Shraddha Kapoor. Sidharth Malhotra, Alia’s boyfriend, has increasingly shown interest in Shraddha nowadays. That has resulted in the tiff between the two. This began when the two started working together in Ek Villain. Shraddha has successfully worked in Baghi, which was a 100 crore blockbuster. Alia is gearing up for Udta Punjab. They have now started competing and the love that they once felt for another has been diminished by their jealousy and insecurity.

Parineeti and Anushka

Parineeti Chopra and Anushka Sharma have recently become rivals in the industry. Sources say that Parineeti was originally supposed to be the leading lady for Sultan, which was coveted by Anushka. Although she did state that Anushka is a good choice, she had other thoughts in mind. Parineeti underwent a major change in her appearance by losing weight and by gaining an athletic build. This was deliberately done to win the attention of Aditya Chopra.

 

Priyanka and Kareena

Another pair who have been seen venting their spleen about each other are Priyanka Chopra and Kareena Kapoor. They are of the same age and they both have been successful as leading actresses. On Coffee With Karan, Kareena openly stated that they were just acquaintances. Another Major Reason for their feud is that they were both Shahid Kapoor’s old flames. They never tried to restore cordiality between themselves.

These are just a few incidents that have caught our attention. Circumstances have made their relationships complicated. It is very difficult to break free from the feeling of being hurt. But nevertheless, all of their fans hope that things would be better between them in future.
