There are all those cases of once upon a time thick friends, who of recent times have turned into mutually launched cold war foes! ... Occasionally, the war has not been harmlessly cold ...
Professional rivalries, personal hiccups, all love lost, et al ... here's how unbecoming matters have turned old friendships from sweet to sour!
Shah Rukh Khan eventually left the party in a huff with his wife.
Will these two ever become friends again?
This one is of two best friends who turned lovers, and have now allegedly parted ways, not on pleasant terms.
Rumours had it that Salman had supposedly thrown all of Katrina's stuff out of his Galaxy apartment when he found out that she was in touch with John Abraham, another of his tinsel town foes,via SMS(s). Salman, it was heard, got greatly infuriated and decided he no longer wanted Katrina in his life. But all that buzz was squashed when assured their fans through a public assurance that belied any such happening. Katrina admits that she had been SMSing John, but it was all work-related in regards with the shooting and release of their common movie New York, but also maintains that she was no longer in touch with John beyond professional concerns.
One wonders then, if things will return to the good old days for the couple again?
Kareena put herself into hunting an alter lucky mascot who could launch her on a better pedestal in Hindi cinema, and that was when Saif happened. Eventually the two confessed being an item on national television, after many public denials previously. The duo is said to be formally engaged and have been going steady for a while.
Of course there was ex boyfriend Shahid, very upset about his break-up with Kareena who for herself had done much better in getting over the heartbreak.
Shahid and Kareena had come face to face once again when they had to shoot the remaining portions of Jab We Met. While shooting, they showed no signs of cold vibes or any distaste but after the shoot wrapped up, they refused to speak to each other.
And as far as their mutual harmony goes during the post production work of their latest release Milenge Milenge, one has little hope of a mature patch up between the two, even as cordial colleagues.
Their friendship soured when controversies concerning Bebo and Shahid were created, allegedly, just to gain popularity for the movie, Kaminey.
Salman Khan and Vivek Oberoi had their first spat over their common love interest in the now Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan. Things have yet to cool down and resolve between the actors, from then to now.
Back when Vivek was a newbie in the industry, he had made a big mistake in becoming foes with Salman. It is known that Vivek called a press conference and told them that Salman had hounded him with 41 drunks calls that were very unpleasant. And never again have they spoken to each other.
Sources also reveal that Vivek, in later cognizance of his blunder, had even tried to apologize to Salman at the Rajiv Ghandi Awards Function but Salman refused to acknowledge him. He even refused to know someone by the name of Vivek Oberoi.
At the premiere of Vivek's movie Home Delivery, Aish was nowhere present and Vivek had only come with his family which clearly proved that things really were over between the two.
And that's how somethings stand, rather precariously, in B-town. While onscreen endings in Hindi cinema are famous for their happily ever afters, off screen relationships are often on rocks.
Here's wishing for greater prevalence of harmony in Bollywood, among our many beloved stars.
