Katrina Kaif, Priyanka Chopra July-Born Divas



Katrina Kaif and Priyanka Chopra

There was  a time when  I  knew Katrina Kaif and Priyanka Chopra very closely.  They are both July born, their birthdays  separated  by  two days, Katrina on July16 and Priyanka  on July  18. Star signs  and  horoscopes be damned  .The  one  thing that  can be said about  the two of them is, they are  nothing like one   another.

While Priyanka Chopra is  very practical and  not prone to lose her heart over her head, Katrina Kaif thinks with her heart. For her ,  relationships  are  more important than her career. I am not  too sure  Priyanka  would  set aside everything for love  the way Katrina Kaif did for  Ranbir.  I don’t think  Katrina Kaif has been  more  in love than  she  was  during that phase  of her career. Everyone  who knew Katrina, knew she  was a girl in love. Starry-eyed, head in the cloud, she was  building her  marital dreams brick by brick piece  by piece when  it  all came  crashing down.

 I don’t think Katrina Kaif will ever  be in love in the same way again.

Of course, Priyanka Chopra too is a girl in love. But  Priyanka doesn’t  wear her  heart  on her sleeve. Her emotions are  dictated  by hard-headed logistics. There  is  no  head-over-heels  in her case.

I remember how shattered Priyanka Chopra  was when her father’s serious  health  condition  was diagnosed. Beyond doubt  the worst phase   of her life  was when her father fell ill.On the day after she found out his condition, she was on the sets of Rohan Sippy’s   Bluff Master shooting normally. No one had a clue about the turmoil she was going through.

In the evening when her co-star Abhishek Bachchan was on the phone with me I mentioned Priyanka’s pain to him. That was the first he heard of it.

“Why should I burden those around me with my pain?” she asked me.“I’m sure they’ve their own worries.I’ve mine to deal with.I wouldn’t like it if they started unburdening their problems on me.”

Katrina Kaif  , I think needs a shoulder to lean  on . Salman  Khan is  that go-to shoulder. It’s a pity they never took their relationship to  the marriage mandap. Salman could have been  the  Nick Jonas  in  Katrina’s  life.
