Who said two actresses can’t get along? They were right, it seems. The latest Bollywood starlets to share friction are Bipasha Basu and lucky hit mascot Katrina Kaif, who is currently on a high after her Singh is Kinng is breaking all records. Though Katrina and Bipasha appeared together in Race, Bipasha admits that they didn’t interact at all. In fact, she is quite frank about it! “Yes there is a problem between Katrina and me. But there could be reasons for that. It could be because of our boyfriends (John Abraham and Salman Khan) but that never affected our work. We didn’t speak during Race but that never stopped shooting,” she explains. Well, at least she is honest!
Recall that Bipasha Basu also had rumoured problems with Kareena Kapoor, but she claims that time had healed any bad blood between the two. She says, “Kareena and I had a problem so many years back that today I don’t even remember today what it was. I don’t know Kareena as a person but today I can say openly I don’t have any problems with her. People then created an awkwardness and with constant repetition the problem got aggravated but I hold no grudges. She’s a wonderful actress.”
She claims that if she met Kareena at a social event, she could greet her cordially. But the same cannot be said for Katrina. “No, I can’t do that with Katrina. There is an awkwardness between Katrina and me. We don’t talk to each other,” she admits.
On the other hand, Bipasha has got along very well with newcomer Deepika Padukone and says she is a great girl with a very raw on-screen persona. The two didn’t interact during Bachna Ae Haseeno as they shared no scenes, but have warmed up to each other during the promotion and music video shooting.
I guess Bipasha is right, you can’t be friends with everybody!
