Mumbai: Karan Johar’s recent bash saw one of the most inconceivable patch-ups in Bollywood with Deepika Padukone reconciling with her arch rival Katrina Kaif.
Apparently, Karan’s Filmfare Best Director award bash turned out to be the biggest kiss and make up story of 2011. It is believed that Deepika made the first move to end the bitter cold war with Katrina even as Siddhartha Mallya and Ranbir Kapoor were standing far apart.
Talking to a daily, an eyewitness said, “Deepika walked up to Katrina and told her, `Let bygones be bygones. Jo ho gaya so ho gaya. I hold nothing against you. I don`t blame anybody. I have moved on in life and am in a very happy space now`.”
Interestingly, Katrina was completely flabbergasted at Deepika’s sudden move. Speaking on Katrina’s reaction, the source added, “Katrina was a bit surprised, but she quickly gathered herself and told Deepika, `Oh, that`s fine. I am very happy that you spoke to me. The load is off my chest`.”
After burying the hatchet, Deepika and Katrina were extremely cordial with each other in the party.
However, not long ago, the two actresses were each other’s nemesis for more than two years. Interestingly, the friction between Deepika and Katrina started in December 2008, when the former got to know about Ranbir’s growing proximity to Katrina on the sets of ‘Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani’.
When a concerned Deepika stormed on the sets of the film in Goa, she couldn’t believe her eyes. Even Katrina told a friend once, “I couldn`t believe my eyes when I saw her on the sets of ‘Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani’. And sure enough she stayed for quite some time in Goa."
This was the last straw in Deepika and Ranbir’s relationship and after this; things were never the same between Ranbir and Deepika.
In one of the episodes of Karan Johar’s ‘Koffee with Karan’, Deepika made a jibe at Katrina and said that she would like to see her passport.
