After a long spell of cold-shoulders and frigid vibes, Kareena Kapoor and Deepika Padukone finally seem to have called for truce. The bone of contention between the two actors had allegedly been Kareena's boyfriend and Deepika's co-star Saif Ali Khan.
It was believed that Kareena was upset with Imtiaz Ali for casting Deepika and not her opposite boyfriend Saif in Love Aaj Kal. In fact, it is also rumoured that later Kareena ousted Deepika to star in Saif's Agent Vinod.
Deepika-Saif were a successful pair in Love Aaj Kal. And now, Saif and Deepika will be seen in three films together - Prakash Jha's Aarakshan, Abbas-Mastan's Race 2 and Homi Adajania's Cocktail. Saif and Kareena, on the other hand, have done two films (Tashan and Kurbaan) and are working on the third Agent Vinod.
But the two seemed to have buried the hatchet and have been bonding on the sets of Cocktail, where Kareena came to look up her beau Saif.
"Deepika bumped into Kareena in the hotel lobby. Dippy walked up and spoke to her. Things were better between them almost in an instant. They would be talking and chatting over dinner. In fact, once the two ladies went out with Saif for dinner as well. Kareena was in London for four days and they all stayed in the same hotel Mont Calm," a source told Mumbai Mirror.
"Such reports haven't changed my equation with Kareena. There is no animosity with her," Deepika had told Hindustan Times when asked whether these three films together may rake up that past.
Saif, too, doesn't seem to mind.
"We have consciously tried to do things differently in these films, so that the pairing doesn't look repeated," he says, before Deepika added, "When we signed these films I wasn't aware that we both were cast together. It's a happy coincidence."
With Deepika patching up with Katrina and Kareena burying the hatchet with Priyanka Chopra earlier this year, the air sure seems to be clearing!
