Apparently Katrina Kaif saidDeepika Padukone‘sDum Maaro Dum item song was sub-par. Bipasha Basu is also supposed to be upset with Deepika as she feels her item song is getting all the attention inDum Maaro Dum. Sonakshi Sinha is reportedly feuding withZarine Khan overSalman Khan. Yes, these are just a few of the gossip items reported by the press last month. What do they all have in common: young actresses in feuds with one another!
Why does Bollywood always pit these new actresses against one another, while in comparison, the newer crop of actors, like Ranbir Kapoor andImran Khan, are left unscathed? While it is fair to argue that maybe Ranbir Kapoor and Imran Khan are really friends, whereas the actresses are not it’s likely that the media likes having sparring actresses. Older feuds include: Jaya v/s Rekha, Rani v/s Kajol, Rani v/s Aishwarya, Bipasha v/s Kareena, Lara v/s Priyanka, Preity v/s Rani, Deepika v/s Sonam, Freida v/s Shilpa and more recently: Katrina v/s Deepika, Priyanka v/s Kareena, and the list goes on and on. In contrast the only actor in much publicized feuds seems to be Shah Rukh Khan v/s Aamir Khan and Salman Khan (well, Salman and Vivek had a feud too, but that is old news now). While some of the feuds may be real, it seems that the spats between the actresses always become sensationalized by the press, whether they are fiction or not. While I do enjoy the gossip, I am getting tired of the actresses being pitted against one another! What say you MissMalini readers, can you list any other feuds I missed?
MissMalini says: I remember some Page 3 feuding as well! Do you know any other examples of actors being in feuds besides SRK? Over to you!
