Why will Katrina Kaif, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra not marry?
Yogen Shah

Will the three most ambitious B-town babes give up on love for their career? Well, looking at the current Bollywood scenario we would not be surprised if they did

For long time now, heroines have added glam quotient and sex appeal in a movie. However in the recent past actors like Vidya Balan, Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone and Kangana Ranaut have changed this and instead chose to successfully deliver hit films without any backing from a Khan, Kapoor or Kumar. While a hero’s marital status might not affect his movie’s fate at the box-office, a heroine’s career graph makes a downward move the moment she is hitched or becomes a mommy. Even today a Bollywood heroine doesn’t stand on the same platform as her male counterpart. Here are three Bollywood A-listers whose careers have nosedived post marriage, which might just be enough reason for single ladies to ditch any marriage plans at least in the near future.

Kareena Kapoor Khan: We have honestly lost count of the number of movies that Bebo has refused in past few years. Ms Kapoor Khan has said she has turned down several blockbusters including Kangana Ranaut’s Queen, Deepika Padukone starrer Chennai Express and Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela etc etc. The actor had to quit Shuddhi opposite Hrithik Roshan recently after Karan Johar’s hero walked out. Unfortunately for this heroine her film with Farhan Akhtar Bombay Samurai has been shelved, which leaves the once extremely busy star with just one movie in her kitty – Singham 2.  While KKK is keeping herself busy w3ith endorsements and appearances, the going isn’t great there too. Apparently the actor has had to slash her rates. Rumours also suggest that she is sending out feelers to Sanjay Leela Bhansali to cast her in Bajirao Mastani. While Kareena Kapoor seems to be living her onscreen Heroine role in real, it’s a shame to see the once sought after heroine have a drought of filmi offers.

Vidya Balan: The latest khabar doing rounds is that Sujoy Ghosh ditched his lucky charm  Vidya Balan and has roped in Kangana Ranaut for his upcoming film with Irrfan Khan. While Ms Balan has vehemently denied all rumours of pregnancy and seems to be on a much needed break, looks like good friend Ghosh who sweared to not go ahead with the film without Vids is now considering the Queen babe for his film. Sujoy was ready to wait for Vidya until she was free from all her commitments but looks like Ms SRK’s (Siddharth Roy Kapur) pregnancy news has given Mr Ghosh a cold feet. That’s not it, we also hear that Vids pregnancy news had started debates and discussions on pregnancy clause in Bollywood for heroines. Vidya can aptly term the latest episode of her life after her last release – Shaadi Ke Side Effects!

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan: Once the most beautiful face even on the global platform is now on an official leave from filmi circuits. Her career post marriage with Abhishek Bachchan in 2007 didn’t see a lull moment, but after baby Aaradhya’s birth looks like Ms Rai Bachchan is just not ready to face the cameras. With not a single movie since 2010, every rumour about her signing a movie becomes a headline. While she still appears on ads, silver screen is deprived of Ash’s magnetic presence on scree. We dunno if its a self-imposed exile or then lack of lucrative offers that has put a full stop to Aishwarya Rai‘s Bollywood career.

With three top heroines as examples who are suffering the aftermath marriage, we’re sure that the ruling queens will not wanna be in their shoes.Subscribe to me on YouTube

    u need to seriously re-write the article priyanka and deepika didn’t need the khans Seriously ???? . Deepika started off with mr.srk and u say she didn’t needed a khan .Priyanka dated akshay kumar to get roles and get noticed than she dated srk to get into spotlight and u say she didn’t need the khans if she didn’t have mr.srk she would be nothing more than a tanushree dutta or a mallika sherawat

    • abc

      not only that dp lucky year was that good because race was established + multi starrer, yjhd ayan and ranbir, ce srk+ rohit shetty, r-l slb music! she should do a movie like queen !

      • Guest

        She has done a Cocktail…the movie became a hit because of her not because of the Khan in it! and yeah songs from sawarya nd guzaarish also were good but the acting of the acyors had flaws.. so u gotta give dp the credit too!

        • aliya

          I agree cocktail was hit only bcz of deepika. she was widely appreciated and was hero of film.

    • Guest

      she did a fashion and a barfi without the Khans!

  • Sheara

    Deepika sucks goshhh shes dont most films with srk , ranbir, SAIF

    • aliya

      she has done cocktail where she was said as hero of film. only deepika was praised in that movie even saif lagged behind her. in race 2 be a multi starrer she made her own place. in Chennai express she even overtook srk. she was highly acclaimed than srk.

  • Guest

    k katrina has ranbir and deepika has ranveer but priyanka doesn’t have anyone . She should get married now however her time is up stop bringing her name for the no 1 heroine she is no where near . Priyanka and kareena’s time is up atleast kareena got lucky and married some nawab what about priyanka ????? she is not even getting anyone after dating married men (srk,akshay) and losers (shahid,harman) she is not even getting proper roles. I saw hardly her in krish 3, gunday was about the bromance ,zanjeer was a huge flop.Where is she even getting awards

    AISHWARYA RAI MARRIED ABHISHEK BACHAN AND HAS WON 3 FILMFARES OUT OF 11 NOMINATIONS AND SHE IS HAPPILY MARRIED

    KAREENA KAPOOR MARRIED SAIF ALI KHAN AND HAS WON 6 FILMFARES OUT OF 12 NOMINATIONS AND SHE IS HAPPILY MARRIED

    VIDYA BALAN I DON’T KNOW MUCH ABOUT HER HUSBAND BUT SHE GOT 4 OR 5 FILMFARES

    PRIYANKA CHOPRA JUST GOT AWARDS FOR FASHION AND AITRAZ APART FROM THAT NOTHING IS SPECIAL IN HER CAREER (NOTE: THE ROLES OF BARFI COULD HAVE BEEN DONE BY ANYONE)

    • maria

      my goodness, calm down kid lol. why should she get married to just anyone just because people like you are out there? it’s not like you go out and pick any random guy, you do some rituals, and boom you get married cuz oh no she’s of a certain age. no, then that would lead to divorce. she honestly is doing fine anyways (shes still getting big projects) and don’t forget she also has hollywood because of her singing career. no not anyone could have done barfi, HA.

      • Raina

        I’m always surprised when anyone mentions Priyanka has Hollywood or a singing career lol Hollywood does not even know her, and sad but true, Indian women have zero chance of making it big in HW, in fact any person of colour, especially women of colour. As for her singing career, let’s not pretend she’s big there, her songs were hits mainly in India only.

        But I still think, she still has a shot at better acting roles and m pretty sure, there r many rich eligible bachelors out there who’d love to marry her

        • guest

          so damn right her song was like the worst in nfl history

        • Cattypuss

          That’s not quite true – does Antonio Banderas and Penelope Cruz ring and bells. Selma Hyek, Ken Watanabe, Irrfan Khan? Not to mention a host of African American actors who command HUGE salaries. Will Smith, Denzel Washington, Morgan Freedman, Halle` Berry ect. There is NOTHING stopping an Indian actor trying to make his mark in Hollywood. Hrithik Roshan could have made the grade if he persisted, but he got cold feet when Kites failed, and has returned to what he considers safer pastures. It’s a shame, out of all your actors this man could have risen quite high in Hollywood. So for me (as a western observer) it is not lack of talent you suffer from, it is a lack of confidence and patience. Some of our Australian actors took years to break into Hollywood and I include Hugh Jackman and Cate Blanchette in that statement.

          • Raina

            Lmao, check up and see, most of them are Latinas who can pass off as white women. Will Smith and Denzel Washington are definitely huge stars, but still African American actors find it much harder to break into Hollywood and become successful. A few of the actors like Ken Watanabe and Irrfan Khan, do they regularly get roles, are roles written keeping them in mind? Nope. And guess what, 90% of the actors you mentioned are women, because women of colour, genuinely find it difficult to make it big in HW. There are very few, example Lucy Liu, who did have a few years of success, but ultimately had to resort to small screen to get back into acting fold. Hope she has success there, because I love her. About Hrithik Roshan, lmao, none of the major HW magazines, and most of all the general public cared about Kites.

            And honestly, I don’t think, these people need to pander to Hollywood so much. They have their identity and Bollywood itself is pretty big. This whole HW career thing just reeks of colonialistic mindset. HW isn’t the place where Indian stories needing Indian actors are going to be told. HW is mainly going to tell white and sometimes African American stories. Freida Pinto had so much promise, and we all know, she’s hardly doing much. But Indians love to exaggerate how successful she is when she is just a blip.

          • Cattypuss

            Wow – you really have a complex about white people don’t you O_O how about we get onto short people. HW is made up of many cultures and colours. Yes, it’s still predominantly white (just) because the place is literally run by Jewish power brokers. As for Roshan, he shouldn’t have made a stand alone movie with himself as the lead for his first attempt at HW. In order to make it in Hollywood you have to start with lesser roles, or even a role as part of a group. This is how Hugh Jackman came to their notice. Previously he did stage work. Cate Blanchette and Geoffry Rush were the same. I don’t know who was advising Roshan, but in my view he needed to be slowly introduced to Western audiences – I myself came across him merely by accident after recovering from major surgery. I have Indian friends who suggested I watch some of their Bollywood movies to pass the time, and that is where I watched Jodhaa Akbar. Curious to know who this guy was I did some research into his other work and viewed many of his clips on youtube. I now have some of what I consider his best work on DVD. He’s innovative, experimental,and immerses himself in the role he takes on. He stands out from the rest of the pack. So he had a failure with Kites, big deal. This man has been offered roles that could have got him started – the same opportunities that our Australian actors were given…..and it wasn’t because they were white, it was because they are skilled at what they do. Roshan is the same, but he has decided he is safer in India. He is a definite loss to us in the West, but I am one who is still willing to buy his movies and suffer the subtitles. I love period films and I am looking forward to seeing him in Mohanjodaro – that’s if it’s true he has signed on.

    • Kat’s Buff

      To my surprise Kareena has won 6 FF awards!! Wowww i never knew that. I think all deepika fans should be slapped hardest for calling kareena MEDIOCRE actress

      • aliya

        I agree she won debut. for omkara and jab we met. for we are family from where did others came. people don’t even complete there research efore commenting

    • Rohini

      Katrina doesn’t have Ranbir! They broke up. Also I don’t think Deepika is dating Ranveer.

      • Cattypuss

        So Katrina zeros in on Roshan instead – can’t she wait until he is properly divorced?

  • najatlovekiss

    sometimes i think they dont no what they are talking about, bollywoodlife think before you write, you are fully of fake articles

  • Guest

    lol !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! out of all the three priyanka should get married first her age is getting over and she is not even dating anyone

    LOOK AT HER PIC !!!!!!!!!!! she needs to get married otherwise it will be too late

    • Terminator

      She is waiting for srk’s divorce(i hope it doesn’t happen)

      • aliya

        srk will not divorce gauri mind it he will never leave his children

  • Terminator

    Vidya balan is the best actress in the bollywood think 4 years in consecutive won a filmfare award.. She is the only actress who made it big on her own without khans..

    2009 popular choice — paa
    2010 criticschoice — ishqiya
    2011 popular choice — dirty picture
    2012 popular choice — kahani

    Who cares about 4 100 crores in 1 year.. even sonakshi did 3 100 crores film in 2012 so what ?

    Yet the award went to Vidya balan..

    Deepika in 2013 honestly didn’t had any competition except for sonakshi..Do you think an average actress like deepika would hv won a prestigious award like Filmfare if priyanka,vidya ,kareena had a good year…

    Vidya,kajol ,kareena can still do better than these casting couch actresses like deepika,anushka,katrina..

    • najatlovekiss

      think before you talk, where and when did you hear katrina doing a casting couch, sometimes we people talk without thinking we are hating someone, be careful,

      • Guest

        ok.. so u know how she got her first movie offer..boom :P

    • Kat’s Buff

      agree..

    • Adnan

      Well tats exactly wat everyone thinks; PC hasnt had a good year since 2008 nd Vidya since Kahaani! And dips rocked this year commercially as well as critically; yes the critics awards wud have all gone to vid,pc if they had a “good year” like u say; but look at the overwhelming response dips has recieved frm d audiences! All Popular awards including the Filmfare wud anyways b hers! N i bet Vid, PC or anyone wud have carried chennai express’s Meenamma so good! Boy, comedy is amongst the most difficult genres for any mainstream actress!

      • aliya

        I agree the popularity deepika gained in one year vidya cannot gian in lifetime.

      • arohi

        hahahha oh boy. imagine vidya running behind train hahahahahaha, srk would have been laid dead by that moment. think before you talk. pc is great actress but she could nt have carried tamilian accent that well. deepika is only one who did justice to role of menama. understand.

    • aliya

      oh plzzz do u forget what a rage deepika created at time of cocktail. she carried film aat her shoulders even more praised than saif. that year at times of india awards she won best actress jury award kicking ur vidya and excuse me mr whatever deepika ruled 2013 bcz of her blockbusters performences in ramleelea for which big b even praised her a lot what can other people do if ur vidya and kareena came with crap movies like ghanchakkar and gori tere pyaar mein and failed miserably. it was not deepikas fault that in 2013 vidya kareena were totally flop at box office even recently ur vidyas bobby jasoos was beaten up by newbies sid and shraddhas k villain. before talking rubbish abhout dp go and teach ur vidya some film selection. she just work with balaji films bcz no other filmmaker take her seriously.

      • aliya

        and don’t u dare say dp, anushka or kat casting couch. casting couch can be used for ur vidya who is not at beautiful who knows she get a casting couch for making career in btown

  • aisha

    Ok, we all get it that you guys hate Priyanka enough already. Whatever you say doesn’t take away an ounce of her acting talent. She’s superbly brilliant!

    • Terminator

      Yeah she is national award winner but her consistency is poor

      • aisha

        Yr opinion & yr entitled to it.

      • Guest

        yeah.. u r right… people after a national award start taking their work seriously but she makes the panel regret their decision for giving her a national award.

    • Nihaal Singh

      you are right. PC is an epitome of acting in bollywood as well as vidya balan. that’s why she is getting many women centric films like madamji and mary kom after doing fashion and 7 khoon maaf. she is brilliant

    • aliya

      fashion was awesome priyanka and kangana didi fab job

  • laila

    bollylife is biased! they make me dislike depika…what a bullshit!

  • melissa

    katrina will always be the best and on top…go kat

  • NItin

    Priyanka Chopra is one of the most successful beauty-queen in the Indian Film Industry other than …. actress who made her own path without anybody’s help and going make India proud ,she is miss world & first indian guess girl so there is no doubt that she is beautifull

  • <3cppd<3

    hahaha now fans of FLOPEENA are trying to spread hate here on DP, KAT n PC’s post. they are just hilarious. they are still under the shock that their FLOPEENA is completely devastated!! hahaha poor bebo die hard fans!!

    • Guest

      If u reply me u will agree that u slept with 15 people

      • <3cppd<3

        if u were not a FLOPEENA fan u would not replied me first of all!! you would not feel concerned!!!! bitch!! LOL

  • Guest

    lol!!!!!!!!!!! piggy chopra should get married bcoz she farts a lot lol!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • aisha

      I didn’t want to reply you, but i just had to since iam bored & you really made me laugh. You must be really young to have posted such pics, or old but young interllectually. Really, this is very immature. Like you don’t fart or deficate unless ofcourse u r a software.
      Well kodus 2 u, atleast u didn’t use the dirty words pple use.

    • Cult Of Personality

      U r just pathetic..

  • aamir

    katrina is d best
    i guess she has also delivered hits and superhits without khans
    newyork was superhit and was without a khan
    ajab prem ki gazab kahaani was too a superhit…it had ranbir but ranbir then wasnt as popular n successful like katrina

    im 100% sure that none of the A lister heroines can dance like katrina did a solo in kamli (DHOOM 3) and solo act before ishq shava song (JTHJ) and none of them can do action like KAT did in ek tha tiger

    • zee

      Uh she had a body double even though she doesn’t admit it. Don’t trust anything you see in movies. Only when Katrina dances just as well live (like on an awards show) and does action live will I believe that she is good at dancing and action. Because in award shows she sucks at dancing.

      • najatlovekiss

        you are a hater, think before you talk, ek tha tiger, 80% was her, 20% was body double, even she said it, so if she was a liar, the person will say, be careful

        • Manish

          Are you naive enough to believe everything these actors say about themseleves? wow

          • najatlovekiss

            i believe in Katrina honesty , because people from UK one thing about them they don’t no how to liar, because i leave here so i no it, she doesn’t liar

          • arohi

            hahaha. actors are biggest liars dude. come out of Katrina dreamland

      • najatlovekiss

        are you going crazy, Katrina and PC are the only actress who do a good job live on stage , dont be a hater

        • <3cppd<3

          agreed :)

          • najatlovekiss

            thank you

          • <3cppd<3

            you are welcome

    • aliya

      dear these item songs are reason that Katrina is poor at acting. if she ha quit item no and consumed that time for sharping er acting skills she might turn out to be great actress

  • guest

    bollywood life needs to move on deepika ok she did some fabulous job in recent times
    Katrina : she is consistently giving some good performances but priyanka r u serious since 2010 she has not given a single hit with her performance all she did was hide behind hrithik,ranbir,srk,bro mance (abhi-john,ranveer-arjun) where did she give performance oriented roles u know people call bollywood life ” DEEPIKA KI LIFE” I CALL IT PRIYANKA KI LIFE BCOZ PRIYANKA DOESN’T EVEN DESRVE TOP THREE . give it to kangana instead she overshadowed pc almost every time in krish,fashion and recent queen.

  • Rasmi

    Do not tell me . Priyanka reached the top without the Khans ? And what about her affair with a married man ? It does not matter that this is a PR , or the truth . but it brought her popularity. Akshay took care of her for a long time . just before the divorce with Tina did not happen. With SRK had problems too. Priyanka slept with Shahid , Harman to break into Bollywood. And then say that she herself has done ? Katrina helped Akshay and Salman at the initial stage , but it did not run on their beds . Deepika also not an angel . Karina great actress, but she Kapoor , she helped her name . Now I do not see the good actresses in Bollywood but Kangana , Huma Qureshi , Vidya , Kareena …..

    deepika deserves all the wonderful fandom and popularity!
    some jealous biased people not knowing anything, blindly comment on her abilities and hard work which is totally not worth!

  • sumit
  • aisha

    It’s weird that other actresses like kangana are rumoured to have had affairs with married men too but the only one who’s hated on 4 allegedly committing the same sin is PC. Guess the bigger the star & success the more one is put on the spot. If any of you have had sex with someone who ends up marrying someone else, then u too have slept with another man’s wife or husband cos that person was never ment 2 be yrs in the first place, the only difference is there’s no 3rd party involved.
    Some of u will end up cheating on yr wives, some of yr spouses will end up cheating on you, some of u yr parents cheated on each other probably that’s y u r so bitter, some of u r 4rm broken homes or will end up having broken homes. Yes adultery & cheating is wrong but when u criticize do it out of love or else you’d end up becoming the very thing you hate.
    Haven said all that, how does whom to & when any celebrity gets married affect u?, i can’t really hate or like a celebrity they r not just worth the energy. I do dislike some however. I’d only hate when they r involved oppression like “apartheid ”
    Miss Chopra’s talent is apparent to those who r not invested in prejudice , i just watched a film of hers & can’t wait 4 Mary kom.

  • Sathanomsa

    Hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

  • deepu

    pc is the best… she proved her talnt with barfi,fashion,aitraaz etc. and kangana too,she s amzing, but this deepika and katrina both r sucks, 2013 is a lky year fr deepika, all her movies bcm hit only bcz of her costars and ramleela only bcz of their chemistry, lol no need 2 explain about kat, everyone knws abt her multi talnt…

  • dunno

    priyanka chopra! best actress! can’t wait for mary kom!

    • aliya

      I think this years best actress award will go to pc. she looks promising in mary com

  • Manish

    What makes a star? Looks, Glamor, Talent? DP and Priyanka have all of it. Kaif girl lacks talent and can only be the ‘barbie’ of bollywood. Kaif survived this long in the industry only cos of Salman khan for the first five years and RK now. PC and Deepika on the other hand have gone on to do movies like Fashion, Cocktail and have carried the weight of the movies themselves with limited help from heroes.

    Vidya Balan has started doing one movie at a time, so a flop or a hit wouldn’t matter to Vidya’s career since she has at the most one movie per year. It’s not like she has 3 movies coming out every 5 months or so and they all are flops or hits which can affect an actress career in a bad way or a good way. Besides, her movies since Paa and the phase she had post that till Kahaani wasn’t expected, she took a risk as far choosing films are concerned. None of them were expected to work but did anyways and she was the most talked about. Vidya was called the hero because she doesn’t look good opposite stars doing the typical Bollywood stuff, she failed and got criticisms for trying to go the glamour route. She has only choice and that’s content based movies with her character the core of the film, whether it was Paa, Ishqiya, NOKJ or she is hero of the film like Dirty Picture or Kahaani. Likewise for Kangana, she was good in character roles where somehow the films revolved around her to an extent like Gangster or Woh Lamhe, she even made her short role in Fashion the highlight of the film. But she doesn’t look good in commercial movies, she was criticized and she bounced back by doing a Tanu Weds Manu and Queen. I felt Kangana was odd in Krrish 3, she was good but her character sucked due to falling in love with the superhero and then dying, she should have been as bad as Vivek Oberoi was. All the other actress has films given to them on a platter since they look good with a superstar and they are beautify personified. Do you think Bhansali will look beyond beauties like Ash and Deepika and pick Kangana or Vidya to do a film. For his over the top melodrama film, he needs a Deepika, Kareena or Aishwarya. Kangana and Vidya go deep into their characters and they do not look good acting opposite stars and doing melodrama/comedy/romantic entertainers like Bhansali, Rohit Shetty, KJo and Yash Raj kinda films.
