Bollywood is famous for its thick friendships and it is equally known for its unsettling feuds. Celebs are constantly in a race to prove themselves and hence, are always competing against each other. We've seen some quarrels in the industry that stay unresolved for years. Today's blast from the past is the ugly spat between Kareena Kapoor Khan and Bipasha Basu.
The two celebs worked together in Ajnabee in 2001. The leading ladies had major differences on the sets of the film. It was Bipasha's debut film and Bebo had already won the hearts of her fans with Asoka opposite Shah Rukh Khan and Refugee opposite Abhishek Bachchan.
Reportedly, the two had a tussle over costumes during the filming of the Abbas Mastan directorial. Kareena lost her cool when her designer gave Bipasha a helping hand without her consent. The two engaged in a war of words and Bebo called Bipasha "Kaali Billi (Black cat)." There were also rumours about Bebo slapping Bipasha in the heat of the moment.
In a conversation with a magazine, Bipasha talked about the incident. She said, "I think this is a case of making a mountain out of a molehill. There were never any problems with me. She had some problems with the designer. I don't know why I was pulled in. It was quite childish."
She also mentioned that she'd never like to work with the Jab We Met actress again.
We all know how Bebo has unbelievable comebacks, right? In an interview with a magazine, she said, "She just doesn't seem to have any confidence in her own talent. In a four-page interview, she spoke about me for three pages. Why not talk about your work? I think her only claim to fame is that she fought with me during Ajnabee over designer Vikram Phadnis. She's given statements that I called her uncharitable names. Now, that's a figment of her imagination."
This was the beginning of the cold war between the two actresses. Kareena appeared in the second season of Karan Johar's famous chat show Koffee With Karan where she called Bipasha’s then boyfriend John Abraham, "expressionless."
Later Bipasha came in support of John and responded to Kareena saying, "Kareena has too many expressions."
The lovely ladies finally buried the hatchet in 2008 when Kareena invited her to then-boyfriend and now-husband Saif Ali Khan's birthday bash. All's well between the two actresses now and they are cordial whenever they meet.
