We have several friends in common: Priyanka Chopra on Deepika Padukone
By Hindustan Times
In Bollywood, female actors generally make news for their catfights and rivalries. But of late, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra seem to have taken a completely different route by bonding like BFFs on several occasions. But Priyanka isn’t amused by the talks about their revelry.
“I bond with all my co-actors, especially the girls. I don’t have any issues with any of them. Deepika is a lovely person and we have known each other for years now, way before she became an actor. The reason is that we have a common circle of friends. So it’s (the news about their bonding) nothing new for us at all,” says Priyanka.
Interestingly, before Deepika bagged Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Ram Leela, Priyanka’s name was doing the rounds. But such things seem to have no effect on their companionship. A few days ago, the two were seen spending some quality time with Ram Leela actor Ranveer Singh on the sidelines of a awards function.
A few days ago, Deepika had told HT Café, “Priyanka and I have always been very cordial and friendly with each other. Since not many have seen us bonding, they generally get surprised about it.” She’d added that the two have also been exchanging birthday wishes every year as well. “Priyanka wished me this year too,” she adds. Interestingly, during the shooting of the Ranbir Kapoor-starrer Anjaana Anjaani (2010), Deepika was dating Ranbir and there were rumours of Priyanka getting close to the Kapoor scion.
Priyanka would rather focus on her films (the Zanjeer remake, Gunday, Milan Talkies and the Mary Kom biopic) and her international album. Ask her how she juggles it all and she says, “I am a superwoman. But I love the fact that I am doing some amazing work in films as well as otherwise.”
