The binary of Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif is a bitter one, no denying. Much has been written and talked about them in the media and everywhere. For those of you who don’t know, it all started when Deepika’s ex-boyfriend, Ranbir Kapoor started dating Katrina and allegedly cheated on her because of the latter.
In fact, even after Deepika’s breakup and the infamous Koffee with Karan episode which featured Deepika and Sonam, things went downhill with Ranbir as well. But then, Ranbir and Deepika went on to do two films together- Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and Tamasha. It seems that Deepika has forgiven Ranbir, or it would be best to say that the two share an amicable relationship now. But, when it comes to Ranbir’s ex, things aren’t very cordial. If reports are to be believed, Deepika will not invite Katrina to her wedding. In Neha Dhupia’s show, as part of ‘Say It Or Strip It’ segment, Deepika was asked if she would invite Katrina to her wedding, and without any hesitation, Padmaavat actor said, “No.”
Whoa! That’s blunt and honest. Things have always been on a rough patch when it comes to Deepika and Katrina. In fact, on Koffee with Karan season 4, when Kjo asked Deepika about Katrina, she said, “Sometimes you have a certain feeling for other people and they don't necessarily feel the same way about you. But that's okay.” And then she added that she is comfortably okay with Katrina, both personally and professionally.
To give you readers a context, Ranbir and Deepika dated for quite some time after doing Bachna Ae Haseeno, their first film together. But when Ranbir appeared in Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani, rumours started floating that the two are growing closer. Deepika and Ranbir broke up on bad terms and it all became very public. Ranbir dated Katrina for a while but self-admittedly broke up with her in 2016. On the other hand, Deepika started dating Ranveer Singh while shooting for Raam-Leela.
And it’s their wedding that’s doing rounds on the internet quite a lot these days. Deepika recently celebrated her 32nd birthday on January 5, 2018, in Sri Lanka with Ranveer. There were deductions that the two might get engaged in Sri Lanka itself. Then according to reports, a source was quoted as saying, “Deepika was gifted an expensive diamond set and a Sabyasachi sari by Ranveer’s family. Her happiness knew no bounds. This was indeed a special occasion for the actress.” Post this statement, Deepika and Ranveer’s marriage rumours started making headlines more.
Considering that they have been dating for more than 4 years now and all these rumours and reports, the day isn’t far when we’ll see Deepika as a bride. In fact, even her father supports her in her choice of marriage. He once said, “As a father, I have given Deepika the freedom to take her own decisions. Even in this case, she is free to decide whatever she wants to do.” What could be better than this?
Now, coming back to Deepika and Katrina, things are perhaps never going to sort out between them. When Katrina joined Instagram in 2016, she started following many celebrities, but very evidently never followed Deepika. Even recently, at Shah Rukh Khan’s birthday, which took place at Alibaug, there was too much awkwardness. SpotboyE reports, “Katrina arrived 4 hours before Deepika and was seen having a good time with the guests. The latter turned up around 6.30 pm and mingled around, however, maintained a safe distance from Kat. Alia, Sidharth and Karan were seen dividing time between the two beauties.”
Well, now that Deepika has bluntly said “no” to invite Katrina for her wedding, it seems any reconciliation is next to impossible.
