On Koffee With Karan 4, Kareena Kapoor Khan had spoken very fondly of Ranbir Kapoor's then girlfriend Katrina Kaif. A few years later, the Udta Punjab star's opinion seems to have changed a tad.

On Neha Dhupia's #NoFilterNeha, Khan was asked to choose between Kapoor's exes — Deepika Padukone and Kaif — but she chose none, BollywoodLife reported. However, she did acknowledge the Padmavati star's acting skills and said she was the better actress of the two.

This is surprising because on Karan Johar's chat show Khan had said she enjoyed hanging out with Kaif on the sets of Phantom in Beirut. She said Kaif has a heart and is a warm person. Also, then she was thrilled about Kapoor and Kaif getting together and had even a sangeet performance planned for their wedding.

So, what could have prodded Khan to give such a dry reply? Is the breakup bothering her? While the reasons are best known to her, Kapoor was significantly affected when his relationship with kaif ended.

"It (the relationship) was really punctured by a lot of things, by baseless rumours, reports and perceptions and point of views. It (the break up) hurt, because after my parents she has been the most influential, most motivational entity in my life," the Ae Dil Hai Mushkil actor told Rajeev Masand in an interview a few months ago.

Even though the couple has called it quits, they are extremely professional individuals. Both Kapoor and Kaif have started work on the final leg of Anurag Basu's Jagga Jasoos. Even though the behind-the-scenes captures make it clear they share a healthy rapport, the cold vibes are unmistakable.
