Oscar Wilde said: ‘A gentleman never insults anyone by accident’. A sip of humiliation turns a drinking friend into an enemy. Friendship and enmity are not genetic. There were also many friends in the film industry whose examples were given, but the humiliation of one made the other an enemy. Sometimes in a competition to get ahead of each other, sometimes seeing each other’s success, they became enemies. A similar enmity is seen in the Bhojpuri film industry today. The feud between Bhojpuri actor and singer Khesari Lal Yadav and Pawan Singh has reached its peak. The fans of these artists, who spit venom on each other, also fight each other. Threats of rape are even made. Videos full of lewd abuse are being shared on social media.
Similarly, the enmity between Bollywood stars is also known. Many artists of his time have clashed with each other. Anyway, Bollywood is known for the stiff competition among the actors. Here there are more artists and fewer opportunities, so the mutual competition is not surprising. By the way, there is no denying that ‘competition’ drives any industry to some degree. Even if the actors don’t want to compete with each other, even if they say that they have no problem with successful contestants, even if they say that they compete with themselves, they are forced to enter the arena of competition and are forced to fight each other. There are many great movie stars who worked on a movie together, but then became enemies. Enmity also to such an extent that they never met in front of each other.
Let us know about some of those Bollywood stars, whose known animosity is well known.
1. Raj Kapoor and Dilip Kumar
Dilip Kumar and Raj Kapoor were born in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan. Now you see by chance that in two neighboring houses in Peshawar’s Kasago Gali, both stars were born just two years apart and their storytelling era was listened to with great interest. There was a lot of friendship between the two, who wanted to play diligently, but who could help it, when the differences turned into enmity, both of them also played with great enthusiasm. In the year 1949, the producer and director Mehboob Khan started a movie, whose name was ‘Andaz’. This movie was based on the love triangle. In this, Dilip Kumar and Raj Kapoor were cast along with actress Nargis. This was the first film in which both veteran actors appeared together. But unfortunately, it also turned out to be his last film. During the filming of this movie, a scene was shot where Raj Kapoor had to lightly hit Dilip Kumar with a racket. But Raj hit Dilip in such a way that deep indigo marks were left on his body. Mehboob Khan came running, but Dilip Kumar remained silent. After this, it was published in the newspapers the next day that Raj had intentionally killed Dileep. The well-known feud story between two best friends was widely read.
2. Sridevi and Jayaprada
Sridevi had many enemies in the film industry. His feud with Jaya Prada is well known. So much so that accounts of his feud were widely written and read in the newspapers of the time. Both of them made their Bollywood debut around the same time in the late 70’s. In the same year 1979, Sridevi also started working in Hindi movies with the movie ‘Solva Sawan’ while Jayaprada started working in Hindi movies the same year with the film ‘Sargam’. However, they both settled down while working in the Telugu film industry. The dispute between these two actresses began to touch the sky when Sridevi was cast instead of Jaya Prada in a movie. It is said that the movie ‘Nagina’ was previously offered only to Jayaprada. But after Sridevi was taken in her place, Jayaprada became angry. This film turned out to be a box office success. In such a situation, Jayaprada became angry with both the filmmakers and Sridevi. This resentment gradually turned into enmity between the two. They both stopped talking. Even after making about eight movies together, the two didn’t even see each other after filming. Once the actor Jitendra kept the rooms locked for three hours so they could talk, but even then they didn’t talk.
3. Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan
The amazing story of friendship and enmity between Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan is very interesting. It is July 16, 2008. That day was the birthday of film actress Katrina Kaif. Kat was Salman’s alleged girlfriend at the time, so big names in the industry were invited to the party. Shahrukh Khan also came. He then he used to be Salman’s best friend. But along with the friendship, a crack was also growing inside her. This breakup was largely both professional and personal. At this party Salman Khan told Shahrukh that his TV game show ‘Dus Ka Dum’ is improving TRP than Shahrukh’s show ‘Kya Aap Paanvi Paas Se Tej Hain’. His show is a success. Salman not only stopped at this but also said that he couldn’t make his show a success even after having nicknames like Badshah, Superstar and King Khan. Shahrukh Khan was stunned by this matter. He didn’t say anything at the time, but after a while he made a personal comment about Salman, which was about Aishwarya Rai. Hearing this, Salman lost his cool. Loud conversation started between the two. When the condition started to deteriorate, Gauri Khan, Shahrukh’s wife who was present there, immediately dragged him out of that party. After this, Salman and Shahrukh left the party. From that day until 2013, the talks between the two were completely closed. However, now their relationship has become normal.
4. Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra
Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s movie Bajirao Mastani was released in the year 2015. Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra worked together on this. But the character of Deepika was at the center of the film. After the success of the film, all the credit went to Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone. This thing was very bad for Priyanka Chopra. From here, the distance began to emerge between the two. After so many international projects that were going to be offered to Priyanka, they all went to Deepika. After this, Priyanka’s discontent increased greatly. Even she didn’t like to see Deepika. She once openly said in front of the media that Deepika is no longer her friend. Priyanka said, “I think Deepika and I used to be friends. Now she has become my competitor. I don’t want to say much about this. You can see things from your point of view.” When the stories of enmity between the two began to appear in the newspapers and on television, once Deepika clearly said that there is no competition or enmity between us.
5. Shahrukh Khan and Aamir Khan
The feud between Shahrukh Khan and Aamir Khan is also well known. Both Bollywood stars have been ruling the movie industry for almost 30 years. The fan following for both is also tremendous. But the difference between these two is also tremendous. Actually, in the year 1996, Shahrukh Khan was honored with the Filmfare award for the movie ‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’, but Aamir believed that he should have received this award for his role in the movie ‘Rangeela’. Since then there is bad blood between Shahrukh and Aamir and since then Aamir had decided not to go to the awards show. After a while, Aamir Khan posted on social media that his dog’s name is Shahrukh. Then, stunned, Shahrukh came on Karan Chauhar’s Koffee with Karan show and told many things without mentioning Aamir’s name. The two stars have rarely been seen together.
