Is Katrina Kaif trying to steal Deepika Padukone’s thunder?

Dhoom:3’s much awaited title track was released just a day prior to Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s much hyped film Goliyon ki Raasleela Ram-Leela

Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif’s equation in Bollywood is well known. The duo who shared an amicable relationship in Bollywood turned arch rivals after reports of Dippy’s ex-beau Ranbir Kapoor and Kat’s growing fondness for each other became the talk of the town. So much that there has been a game of one-upmanship going on. Was that what the makers of Dhoom:3 wanted to play up on? We don’t know, but looks like they definitely wanted to cash in on this opportunity and pit the two warring beauties against each other. Didn’t we see how Aamir Khan dedicated the Dhoom:3 title song to the retiring Master Blaster and everybody got talking about it.

With Deepika Padukone’s multiple appearances in desi avatar at various promotional events for Ram-Leela (as it was called earlier) it would just be perfect to bring in a sexy hot number of Katrina and both the parties would get the public talking, na? Katrina did manage to make a splash with this song especially after not having a single release this year, this was her moment. Deepika on the other hand has had a successful 2013 with superhits like Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani and Chennai Express in her kitty.

Was this then Kat’s way of announcing her arrival in the race for the best actor? BollywoodLifers tell us, who do you like better Deepika Padukone as rustic beauty Leela or then Katrina‘s sexy Aalia avatar?
