Famous Bollywood feuds that kept the media entertained

·4-min read

When it comes to specific problems, conflicts and disputes, cooperation can help create a positive environment for the team to move forward. Celebrity rivalries to Bollywood cinema have been around for a long time. And the Indian film industry has a significant number of actors who despise each other.

Stars have fought many times on the streets of Bollywood, many of them among themselves. Certain kinds of interpersonal conflicts and disputes help spur each other to collaborate more than they hinder cooperation.

Over the years, star celebs like Kareena Kapoor Khan, Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Hrithik Roshan have found themselves at the centre of a great deal of controversy, who are notorious for their long standing rivalry in Bollywood because of their well-publicised feuds.

Karan Johar vs. Kangana Ranaut

When filmmaker Karan Johar invited Kangana Ranaut to participate in his legendary talk show, Koffee With Karan, he had no idea that the Queen actress would launch a personal assault on him and his Bollywood career. During the show, Kangana referred to Johar as the "flag-bearer of nepotism" and hinted that he was running a ‘film mafia’. Following that, Karan said that Kangana was playing the woman card and that the only reason he let her speak like that was that she was his guest.

Priyanka Chopra Jonas vs Kareena Kapoor Khan

Piggy Chop's and Bebo's love-hate romance has been stirring controversy for years. The two were constantly seen sneering at each other. In an interview, Kareena reportedly said that her film ‘Heroine’ is better than ‘Fashion’ and unconcerned about winning a National Award.

When asked about Kareena's blatant dig at her, Priyanka told NDTV, "Ok, I think if you don't have one then, you know, sour grapes, what should I say?" Nevertheless, the two seem to have moved on from their petty quarrel, as the two later appeared together on season 6 of Koffee with Karan.

Kangana Ranaut vs Hrithik Roshan

The supposed relationship between Kangana Ranaut and Hrithik Roshan has controlled the headlines for years. Hrithik says it was all in Kangana's imagination, despite Kangana insisting the two were in a relationship and referring to him as her “silly ex”.

SRK vs Farah Khan

Farah Khan and Shah Rukh Khan were once best buds. As Farah took over as director for Tees Maar Khan, she cast Akshay Kumar instead of SRK. Since then, Shah had refused to speak with Farah. There's no clarification or film partnership to show that anything seen between two is well.

Vivek Oberoi vs Salman Khan

Well, you all must be aware of the ‘infamous’ feud between Salman Khan and Vivek Oberoi. And the cause of this celeb rivalry was none but our very own ‘Bachchan bahu’ Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. The main reason: Aishwarya Rai started dating Vivek Oberoi after her split with Salman Khan, which ignited their feud!

According to Aishwarya, Sallu Bhai was an abusive boyfriend, and Vivek held a press conference to reveal this and allegations that Salman had made threatening phone calls to him. Salman Bhaijaan, a far bigger star, was enraged and vowed to derail Vivek's career, which he dutifully did.

Bipasha Basu vs Kareena Kapoor Khan

Bipasha ‘Bips’ Basu and Kareena ‘Bebo’ Kapoor Khan worked together for the first time in Ajnabee. Following their first feature, the two became alienated and promised never to work together again.

Bipasha had previously said in an interview that she disliked Kareena and was worried that their lack of chemistry would reflect on television. Despite their troubled relationship, they worked together in 2006 on Omkara.
