B-Town Cat Fights
Ever since ever, there have been stories, column-inches, gossips, scandals in Bollywood about apparent "cat fights". Most of the time they are made up of course. There have only been a few confirmed spats in the past i.e. Sridevi vs Jaya, Madhuri vs. Sridevi, Karisma vs. Raveena etc...
These days it seems the media are so bored, that they create stories out of thin air about these alleged brawls between the likes of Kareena-Priyanka-Katrina-Deepika. And I think that sometimes these made-up headlines are in fact the cause for some rift between all the UBDs out there. The media needs to be more responsible. If they want to make stories up, then we not let it be positive?
Just look at the promo of 'No One Killed Jessica'; Rani and Vidya have been joint at the hip, laughing and joking their way through 'Koffee With Karan' and even going as far as sucking each other's thumbs on camera. This is a clear case of female solidarty. Why is most of the coverage negative?
Recently we saw Salman Khan's 'Being Human' campaign bring together a whole host of UBDs: Karisma Kapoor, Sushmita Sen, Rani Mukerji, Preity Zinta, Kareena Kapoor, Bipasha Basu, Priyanka Chopra, Katrina Kaif. All the footage from the event clearly showed all the girls hanging out as one big gang and they were having fun. I don't understad why we constantly hear of "cold wars" happening between Deepika and Katrina or Priyanka. Not only is it hugely un-entertaining but also it gives out the wrong vibe for the community.
