The IIFA 2016 was held recently in Madrid where we saw a clash between two of Bollywood’s top ruling actresses for the title of the Queen. Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone gave their best performances and set the stage on fire with their breathtaking acts.
While the two performed to the songs from their cinematic success Bajirao Mastani, they did not perform together. Instead, they had their own solo performances. Reports revealed that while Priyanka Chopra who won best supporting actress for the same movie was paid Rs. 2 crores to perform to the Pinga song, the winner of the best actress tittle, Deepika Padukone was paid 13-14 lakhs less. OUCH!
News had been circulating about a cold war between the divas to which the surprised Priyanka Chopra questioned the reporters“You (media) said we are friends. Earlier, you all used to write we are BFFs (best friends forever) so how did this change, why and how it changed? I did not say it has changed, you said it has changed,”
“I am clarifying that whatever was earlier it is same today also. Your perspective has changed and that shouldn’t have happened,” she further dismissed the rumors that their friendship has turned ugly.
The Bajirao Mastani co-stars have time and time again said they are friends. In fact, Deepika had said that Priyanka was her first friend when she entered Bollywood which was nearly a decade ago.
To further put the rumors to rest Priyanka stated in her acceptance speech , “Thank you Bajirao, Mastani, Deepika, Ranveer – in the film we hate each other but otherwise we love each other”
