Katrina Kaif recently attended the special screening of Alia Bhatt's "Udta Punjab" and the two actresses spotted chatting and laughing like best friends at the event. Alia's step sister Pooja Bhatt even shared an adorable picture of the two young divas and called them "sisters."

"This could well be titled SIBLING revelry!! Ok so I told both these gorgeous women this picture was JUST for me but they look so damn good together I had to share it! They could well be sisters! Not merely for their looks but also for their hilarious banter that you have to hear to believe! #beautifulwomen #actors #camaderie #banter #love #support #aliabhatt #katrinakaif #udtapunjab #screening," Pooja wrote it as a photo caption.

Earlier, there were rumours of a catfight between Katrina and Alia. It had been reported that the "Shaandaar" actress was the reason behind Katrina and Ranbir Kapoor's break up. It was said that Katrina couldn't bear her then-boyfriend's closeness to Alia at the house parties that used to be thrown by Katrina and Ranbir. Alia's presence in Ranbir's life had started bothering the "Fitoor" actress, leading to unending arguments between the then couple.

Katrina even expected filmmaker Ayan Mukerji to drop the "Highway" actress from his upcoming superhero flick, which stars Ranbir and Alia. However, things didn't work out the way Katrina wanted and the rest is history.

But, the reports turned out to be mere rumour when the two divas were spotted hugging each other at the HT Most Stylish Awards 2016. Alia even shared their photo on Instagram with caption: "Candid! #FavouritePerson."

Meanwhile, Katrina and Alia were again seen bonding at the "Udta Punjab" special screening and they looked like the next BFF in Bollywood. In fact, Ranbir was also one of the celebrities who attended the event.
