When Shahrukh Khan calls you go. It’s that simple. But happens when you aren’t exactly friends? Well, you try and time the entry and exits in such a manner that you both get to visit the King and still manage to stay away from each other. Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif did just that on the eve of the Badshah’s 52nd birthday. The bash that saw Khan’s closest friends in attendance also saw the two ladies in attendance.
Deepika made her Bollywood Debut with On Shanti OM in 2007. She also went on to do films like Happy New Year and Chennai Express with the King. Katrina, on the other hand, shared screen space with Shah in Jab Tak Hai Jaan and is also doing his next with Anand L Rai.Now we aren’t saying that the two women are at loggerheads. It’s quite the opposite really. But when you have both dated the same man in the past. Things tend to get a little difficult. So Katrina took the morning slot. She was at Khan’s Alibaug bungalow with Sidharth Malhotra and Karan Johar when Khan arrived for the festivities to begin. She bonded with Khan, spent some great time with the baby of the gang Alia and moved away just when the party was settling in.
Enter Deepika. Padmavati may be in crisis once again but Deepika looked relaxed in white. She was ALSO seen hanging out with Alia Bhatt at the party. You can tell from this attempt at a photobomb that Ms. Padukone has a great time.
Ranbir Kapoor, incidentally, was absent from the do. He was very much a part of it in the past. We wonder what slot he would have picked? Or is that the reason he gave the bash a miss?
