Deepika Padukone and Kareena Kapoor swap places

Looks like the grass is greener on the other side for the two Bollywood babes

Kareena Kapoor was initially offered Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Ram Leela. But KK turned it down ‘coz of date and money issues. And the role went straight to Cocktail diva Deepika Padukone. She’s all set to woo us with her Gujarati chick avatar and sizzle opposite the Band Baaja Baaraat dude Ranveer Singh. And as we are usually in awe of SLB films (excluding the Saawariya types), this time too we are waiting with bated breath for Ram Leela.

Now if you are starting to feel sorry for Kareena Kapoor for losing out on such an important role in an acclaimed director’s movie, don’t, ‘coz Bebo is no angel with a shining halo on her head. After Bebo declined Ram Leela and Padukone bagged her role in the Bhansali film, Bebo made sure she did the same by grabbing a role in a Ekta Kapoor film, which was originally meant to be essayed by Dips. Although nothing much has been divulged about this project, we hear it’s an Ekta Kapoor and Karan Johar collaboration with Emraan Hashmi in the lead role.

Looks like these babes are taking the phrase cut-throat competition too seriously, and cutting into each other’s roles and movies, but hey, who are we to get judgmental. After all, this is just one of the survival tactics to sustain in a place like Bollywood, right?
