Bollywood and catfights have been going hand in hand for a very long time. Times have passed eras have changed but Acressses’ catfights have remained frozen in the pages of gossip columns.
There has always been a stereotyped assumption that when two actresses share the same screen in the same film, but they can’t get along. This prevalent perception was confirmed when Kareena Kapoor Khan and Bipasha Basu got into a huge fight on the sets of Ajnabee. Their heated dispute was so terrible that it swiftly escalated, and the two divas ended up publicly slamming one other.
For the unversed, let us take you back in time when Kareena and Bipasha had a heated argument over their designer.
Those who are unaware of what had happened, let us tell you that Kareena and Bipasha had a heated argument over their designer. Kareena was furious when designer Vikram Phadnis, who was assigned to her, assisted Bipasha without her permission. It quickly devolved into a shambles, and Kareena referred to Bipasha as ‘Kaali Billi.’ According to some sources, Kareena even smacked Bipasha in the heat of the moment.
In an interview with Filmfare in 2001, Bipasha gave an appropriate response to Kareena when she was questioned about the event. “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 had said.
In response to Bipasha’s remarks, Kareena gave the magazine her version of the tale in 2002. “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 dress designer Vikram Phadnis. She’s given statements that I called her uncharitable names. Now, that’s a figment of her imagination,” she had said.
Some people aren’t meant to be on the same platform as each other.
