Islamabad, Oct 22 (Calcutta Tube) The cold war between Bollywood beauties – Kareena Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra – is fast intensifying, with a makeup artist the reason for the latest outbreak of hostilities, according to a Pakistani daily.
‘The war between Kareena Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra is not a new thing. For a long time, reports of mutual dislike between both have been circulating. This time, another undeclared outbreak of war between the two is over their favourite makeup artist Pompy, who is the stylist for both,’ the Urdu daily Jang reported.
According to the paper, Priyanka wanted Pompy for her makeup in her film ‘Anjaana Anjaani’ but when she contacted him, she found out Kareena had taken the makeup artist with her to Sydney, and thus Priyanka was unable to avail of Pompy’s services for her film.
‘It is these things that keep on adding to the bitterness between the two and thus the gulf between the two first-rank actresses is increasing day by day,’ the report said.
Kareena Kapoor , often informally referred to as Bebo, is an Indian film actress who appears in Bollywood films. Born into a film family where both her parents, Randhir Kapoor and Babita, and her elder sister Karisma were actors, Kapoor faced the media spotlight from a very young age. However, she did not make her acting debut until the 2000 film Refugee, which earned her the Filmfare Best Female Debut Award. Her melodrama Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham became India’s highest grossing film in the overseas market in 2001 and is her biggest commercial success to date. After receiving negative reviews for a series of repetitive roles between 2002 and 2003, Kapoor accepted more demanding parts in order to avoid being typecast. Consequently, from 2004 to 2006 she was recognized by critics for displaying greater versatility. Her portrayal of a sex worker in Chameli (2004) proved to be the turning point in her career and garnered her the Filmfare Special Performance Award. She later received two Critics Awards for Best Actress at the Filmfare ceremony for her performances in the critically acclaimed Dev (2004) and Omkara (2006).
