Mumbai: Shah Rukh Khan played a perfect mediator between Priyanka Chopra and Kareena Kapoor at a recent award function, diffusing the tension between two of his favourite leading ladies.
Buzz has it that Khan warded off a major face-off between Priyanka and Kareena at Yash Raj Studios in Mumbai.
Confirming to a daily, a source said, “The shooting of PC’s performance took longer than expected. The Kapoor lass, who was given the same time slot, kept waiting for her to finish her act. Eventually, it got really late and Kareena decided to stage a walkout.”
Apparently, SRK was also rehearsing at the same venue. When he heard about the tiff, he at once decided to sort out the issue. “Knowing that the two don`t get along, he spoke to them separately. He told Bebo to take it easy and suggested she shoot her act the next morning instead of cancelling it completely,” said the source.
Kareena was in a great rush for she had to leave for Pune to shoot for ‘Bodyguard’. “However, since she has the highest regard for SRK, she could not ignore his request. She returned the next morning to finish her shoot." Shah Rukh then went up to PC and told her that Bebo had agreed to shoot the next day. He also told PC to return Bebo`s gesture with warmth and gratitude,” added the source.
Finally, before Kareena left the studio, Priyanka walked up to her and gave her a big warm hug.
