Bollywood popular cat-fight: When Kareena Kapoor called Bipasha Basu 'kaali billi' taunted for dark skin
Kareena Kapoor and Bipasha Basu always shared cold vibes, now things have changed. But there was a time when these two ladies couldn't see eye-to-eye
Kareena Kapoor is always the heart of Bollywood, with her witty replies and amusing one-liners she is always loved by the media and her fans. She is also called the gossip queen of Bollywood. Many celebs called Bebo by that name, and claimed that she has all the inside news of the film industry.
Ever since she joined Bollywood, many news stories came of her love life and catfights with her female co-actors, one of such fights was with Bipasha Basu. Kareena shared the screen with Bipasha in the thriller 'Ajnabee' which also featured Akshay Kumar and Bobby Deol.
Now Kareena and Basu share a cordial relationship, but there was a time when these two divas couldn't see eye-to-eye. The whole fight started on the sets of Ajnabee, over costumes selection.
According to India Today's report, Kareena called Bipasha 'kaali billi' (black cat), taunting the heroine for her dark skin and allegedly even slapped her.
However, both denied the allegations in a few interviews and in some of the media interactions, they accepted the accusations.
In 2002, Kareena opened up about the fiasco to Filmfare. She had said, "She just doesn't seem to have any confidence in her own talent. In a four-page interview, she spoke about me for three pages. Why not talk about your work? I think her only claim to fame is that she fought with me during Ajnabee over dress designer Vikram Phadnis. She's given statements that I called her uncharitable names. Now, that's a figment of her imagination."
Not just that, in an old episode of Koffee With Karan, Kareena called Bipasha's then boyfriend John Abraham ‘expressionless’ and said that she would never wish to work with him.
After years, in 2008, Kareena invited Bipasha to her then boyfriend and now husband Saif Ali Khan's birthday party and since then the two are happy.
