There are no points for guessing that two of the contemporary actresses in Bollywood- Priyanka Chopra and Kareena Kapoor- don't really get along well. Latest buzz doing rounds is that preferential treatment given to Bebo at a recent awards ceremony miffed Pee Cee.
"Priyanka, who was supposed to dance to Yash Chopra's songs, had been practising hard since the afternoon. She had been sweating it out on the floor when, closer to the show time she noticed Kareena sailing in. This was her first public appearance post wedding, and Bebo simply breezed in and out without putting in even as much as a fraction of the effort or time that Priyanka had for the show. This irked PeeCee no end," an eye witness told Mumbai Mirror.
"She threw a fit behind closed doors, upset with the organisers with their preferential treatment. And though she was professional enough to go through the rest of the evening, she was visibly agitated. Her argument was, why would a star of her stature be expected to go through the grind of rehearsals when her contemporary is allowed to breeze in and out," the tabloid quoted another source as saying.
Bebo had commented about Priyanka Chopra's accent on Karan Johar's chat show Koffee With Karan saying: "I wonder where Priyanka got her accent from?" Priyanka had responded saying: "I want to tell Kareena that I got my accent from the same place where her boyfriend got his," referring to Saif and her education overseas.
PC had also said, "I don't think people take Kareena too seriously." When she was asked what she would steal from computers of Bollywood superstars like Shah Rukh Khan, Shahid, Kareena and others, Priyanka giggled and asked, "Does Kareena have a computer in the first place?"
Shahid Kapoor, who was earlier dating Kareena Kapoor, was said to be in a relationship with Priyanka Chopra at that time. Rumour mills suggested this was one of the reasons for icy vibes between the gorgeous ladies.
Priyanka reacted to Kareena's recent comment about not caring about national awards. Kareena had said: "I don't want the national award… I seriously don't need any such thing. I would only want the audience to go and watch the film once and that will be more than enough for me. Once everybody should see the movie and say it is a good watch." Priyanka took a jibe saying: "Well, I guess if you don't have one (National Award), then sour grapes!"
Interestingly, Piggy Chops wasn't invited to any of Saif-Kareena's wedding ceremonies as well!
