It’s raining patch-ups in B’wood this Eid


Preity and Kareena make up
Preity Zinta and Kareena Kapoor have finally decided to put past differences aside and try to be friends. While Preity has gone public with her praises for the ‘Bodyguard’ actress via a social networking site, Kareena too chose to compliment Preity on her sweet and genuine nature. Preity tweeted: “Just saw BODYGUARD! Salman U n Kareena Rock! Its FAB & the action is AMAZING ! All da best This one is full Paisa Vasool :)”. The gesture obviously comes a surprise, since it was Preity who had once at a Diwali party hosted by Akshay Kumar in 2008, snubbed Kareena publicly. In fact, the rivalry started when an unsuspecting Zinta commented on the ‘new lot of actresses’ in those days – a list that included Kareena. The rivalry intensified when Preity was chosen for Karan Johar’s ‘Kal Ho Na Ho’, to play a role that was initially offered to Kareena. A war of words followed between the actresses. In fact, on Karan Johar’s chat show, Kareena made it clear that she was not too fond of Preity. Preity on the other hand, said that Kareena only acknowledged her in Karan’s presence. Both actresses seem to have moved on from their warring days. Needless to say, Kareena is rather pleased with Preity’s gesture. Kareena said, “I am really flattered with Preity’s compliment. She is really sweet and very genuine as a person. She always speaks her mind so I know whatever she wrote was heartfelt.”
Hrithik wishes Salman good luck
On Monday, hours before he was scheduled to fly off to USA to undergo further treatment for his nerve disorder, Salman Khan had a surprise visitor at his Bandra residence. Hrithik Roshan, who had never been too close to Khan dropped by to wish the ailing actor good health. This came as a surprise, considering the verbal battle between the actors in the past. The incident also proved that during tough times Bollywood sticks together. Perhaps, that is why it is till date referred to as the film ‘fraternity’. A source revealed, “Hrithik wanted to wish Salman luck with his treatment in the US. The two actors spent over two hours in each other’s company.” Salman and Hrithik had a fight over Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s 2010 film starring the latter. Salman had commented on the film’s popularity, saying, “Koi Kutta bhi nahi gaya dekhne”. Hrithik, the lead actor of the film had retorted, “It’s not heroic to laugh or make fun of a filmmaker. In my opinion, a hero never gloats. When you are super successful, it should in fact make you more gracious and loving.” Upset with Salman’s comment, Bhansali said, “If such an old and trusted friend can be so insensitive, I don’t want anything to do with the entertainment industry.” Though Bhansali till date has stayed away from a patch up with Salman, Hrithik, it seems has decided to make peace with the Khan.
