Deepika Padukone has a piece of advice for her counterpart Katrina Kaif over the apparent leakage of her holiday pictures with Ranbir Kapoor. She said that Katrina should have been more careful as a public figure.

Interestingly, these beauties have one thing in common - Ranbir Kapoor. Deepika dated the 30-year-old actor in the past but Katrina is reportedly seeing him at present.

"It has never happened with me. I believe if you are a celebrity or public figure... these things are bound to happen. And I don't think you can accuse anybody of anything. If I am a public figure and if someone has captured me then I feel I should have been a little careful," the doe-eyed beauty told Press Trust of India when asked of her ex-flame Ranbir's girlfiriend Katrina's leaked bikini photos.  

Meanwhile, it has also been reported that Katrina has sworn not ro wear bikni in the near future, be it professionally or personally. The actress was furious with the media over the leakage of her bikini shots with boyfriend, Ranbir to the media which made her write letter to media and called the photographer a 'coward.'

The holiday pictures created ruffles within the Kapoor family with Rishi and Neetu Kapoor taking the matter seriously. The duo believed that the photos could affect their star son's image on the professional front, as he has already for his track of girlfriends in the past. Even Deepika Padukone had irked the famous celebrity parent with her statement on Ranbir's frivolous character in Karan Johar's talk show.

Now Deepika's open advise to Katrina can strain their relationship indirectly. Coincidentally, Katrina lost out Imtiaz Ali's next film to Deepika, and the flick has Ranbir Kapoor in the lead role.
