We aren't cats and rats, we're girls: Niharika
Former Miss India and new Bollywood entrant Niharika Singh, who's doing two major films with Himesh Reshammiya, refuses to react to reports suggesting she had a catfight with a Kannada film actress.
"Catfights in a rat race? We aren't cats and rats. We're girls," said Niharika, who is debuting opposite Reshammiya in John Matthew Mathan's A Love Iiisshtory.
She was rumoured to have bickered with Jennifer Kotwal on the 'mahurat' of the movie Mudh Ke Na Dekh Mudh-Mudh Ke. But Niharika denied it.
"In fact, after reading about our so-called catfight at the mahurat, Jennifer SMS-ed me to say the article was such nonsense. I'm speechless. It's too outrageous to even react to," Niharika told IANS.
It has been a tradition to pitch actresses against one another. From Sharmila Tagore-Raakhee during the making of "Daag" to Kareena-Priyanka Chopra in Aitraaz.
But Niharika, winner of the Ponds Femina Miss India Earth pageant, refuses to be sucked into a sham rivalry.
"I've met Jennifer. We've even shot stills for the film that we're doing together. I can't say we're buddies. We haven't spoken that much. But we've exchanged pleasantries. And we're certainly not fighting. After reading the totally fabricated article on Monday morning she messaged me and we had a good laugh about it."
