Reports of Bollywood's leading ladies indulging in catfights have flooded gossip columns for ages. The last entrant happened to be – Deepika Padukone and Sonam Kapoor.
However, pictures of the two actresses exchanging warm pleasantries at the "Finding Fanny" special screening only confirms that they are back to being friends.
The "Khoobsurat" actress put the past behind her and praised Padukone's performance in the film.
She tweeted, "Just saw finding fanny! What a quirky lovely film! Kudos to the whole cast &a special shout out to @homiadajania @arjunk26 @deepikapadukone."
Launched into the industry on the same day – 9 November 2007 - the two actresses have always been pitted against one another.
Padukone's career took off to a flying start with the unprecedented success of "Om Shanti Om" opposite Shah Rukh Khan, but sadly Kapoor's graph didn't quite soar as "Saawariya" bombed at the box office.
Like most Bollywood friendships, their relationship too had its share of highs and lows. From changing PR managers to taking digs at chat shows, they have done it all.
During one of the earlier seasons of "Koffee with Karan" the two enjoyed each other's company and had a good time poking fun at ex-beau (for both of them) Ranbir Kapoor, but for "Season 4" they appeared with different guests.
During the show's rapid fire section, Kapoor reportedly turned mean and aimed jibes at archrival Padukone. "When Karan Johar asked her to name a good girl gone bad, pat came the reply: "Deepika." when he asked if she had any fashion advice for her rival, Sonam retorted, "Create your own style. She's not a clotheshorse. She wears what people...she doesn't have her own style," stated a DNA report.
To top it all, there have been conjectures that Kapoor changed her publicist (same as Padukone's) and moved to another PR agency when she learnt that negative stories were being planted against her.
However, after not being on talking terms for long, everything seems to have settled down between the two as they buried the hatchet and moved on like adults.
