Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif patch-up at Kjo bash

first_imgDeepika Padukone and Katrina KaifKatrina Kaif and Deepika Padukone have patched up. At Karan Johar ‘s mega party on January 3, 2011, Deepika took the initiative to sort out matters that had soured their relationship in the past. Onlookers say it was Deepika, sporting and frank as ever, who approached Katrina and expressed her wish to end their cold war.Deepika approached Katrina and said, “It’s time we let bygones be bygones. Personally, I have nothing against you. I don’t blame anybody else for whatever happened between us”.The ‘anybody else’ Deepika was referring to could be ex-boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor. The fact has been widely reported that Ranbir started getting intimate with Katrina on the sets of Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani and Raajneeti, which were being shot around the same time, even though he was dating Deepika.The break-up between Deepika and Ranbir happened soon after, and the actor has been seen cosying with Katrina once too often in the recent past.”Karan’s parties are famous for being grounds of patch-ups. Karan himself never has prejudices for or against anyone in the industry and in his own way tries his best to bring together warring industry colleagues and let them sort out differences. That’s what happened on Tuesday,” says a source at the party.Incidentally, Karan’s best friend, superstar Shah Rukh Khan, was seen striking a patch-up between Bollywood’s other two top divas, Kareena Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra. The incident happened a day before a recent award ceremony where both Kareena and Priyanka were to perform.Owing to technical problems, Priyanka’s rehearsal seemed to take longer than the stipulated time. Kareena, who was to rehearse next, was seen patiently waiting outside.Says an eyewitness: ” SRK got to know about the tension brewing and spoke to both the actresses separately. Kareena shifted her rehearsal schedule to the next morning. Priyanka went up to Kareena and gave her a warm hug.” It seems like the season of patch-ups in Bollywood. But then again, what is showbiz without its share of catfights? We are sure the claws will come out any time soon again.advertisementlast_img read more
