Whether they admit it or not, the history of B-town has taught us enough; two leading divas can never be good friends! The moment, one becomes more popular, the other feels insecure and that ruins everything (including their so called friendship). But at the same time, if the actress is not insecure or jealous, then nothing can ruin her equation with her co-stars!
Deepika Padukone & Priyanka Chopra are constantly in the headlines owing to the rumoured tiff over their Hollywood projects! In her recent interview with Vogue, Deepika Padukone talked about competition and here's what she said:
'Nothing Has Changed'
She says, "We have had very different beginnings. I still remember I was in school when she won Miss World! I've known her for many years and nothing has changed."
On Having A Competition
Deepika says, "Everyone will have a different path and a different journey. What she wants from her career will be very different from what I want and that needs to be understood and respected."
Is it lonely at the top?
When asked about the same, she told, "Well, I wouldn't know. My focus has always been on the journey... on doing good and challenging work and enjoying the process."
Deepika Is World's 10th Highest Paid Actress
Deepika Padukone has made to Forbes' list of top 10 highest paid actresses of the world while Priyanka Chopra failed to make the mark. Hollywood actresses including Jennifer Lawrence, Scarlett Johansson and Melissa McCarthy also feature on the list.
Deepika On Forbes Ranking
Talking about the same, she told, "I've never been driven by money. It has never been my priority or ambition. But it makes me happy to know that when I focus on the things that I love doing and I'm so passionate about, it can result in something like this."
Friend Or Foe?
Coming back to Deepika & Priyanka, one thing is clear, that both the ladies have carved a niche for themselves in the industry and both are here to stay! Be it the talent or beauty, neither Deepika nor Priyanka is inferior to the other.
We're Happy With Their Works A
As long as they are setting India on the global map, we're happy with their work and we would love to see them doing Bollywood as well as Hollywood films.
The duo was last seen together in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's historical drama, Bajirao Mastani. In the film, Deepika portrayed the character of Mastani, while Priyanka, Kashibai. Ranveer Singh, who played the lead character of Bajirao, was seen romancing both the ladies in the film as one played the character of his wife, while the other, his lover!
The film received a spectacular response from the audiences as well as from the critics. Not just that, the camaraderie of Deepika & Priyanka in the song 'Pinga' was an instant hit among the girls.
