When Deepika Padukone dismissed rumors about her catfight with Priyanka Chopra
For the unversed, Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone worked collaboratively in the film, Bajirao Mastani. However, the rapport between them often grabs netizens’ attention. However, Deepika addressed it and revealed that such rumors make her feel strange, as she considers Priyanka to be her friend and not a professional rival. In the words of Deepika Padukone:
“I like the fact that you use the word ‘friend’, because that’s what she is to me. So, every time I read anything that doesn’t say that (we are friends), it really surprises me. I have always said that she is someone I’ve known for many years. I feel extremely awkward and weird when such comparisons are made, because I don’t even believe that we are professional rivals. We never were. So, why should we be now? She is doing amazing work in her own space. And what her work will require from her in terms of time and other commitments are different from what I am working towards or what I am doing.”
