The Dinesh Vijan helmed film 'Raabta' which stars Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sanon in leading roles

has Deepika Padukone making a special appearance in the film's title track.

The 'Raabta' title track is a reprised version of the original song by the same name from the 2012 film 'Agent Vinod' starring Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan. In the music video, Deepika sets the screen on fire by grooving in a gorgeous black cut-out dress with thigh-high slits.

Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif was questioned about Deepika's sizzling performance when she attended a recent event in the city. She said, "I love it. She looks great. It is a Yay!".

In response to her statement, Deepika at a press conference on Friday said, "I think compliments are always great especially when it comes from your contemporaries and I have always appreciated what she has done with her career."

This sweet exchange between the two is sure to put those nasty rivalry rumours to rest.

It's not every day that you find one actress calling another inspiration but Jacqueline Fernandez recently proved that two actresses can not only be friends but can also motivate each other if need be.
In a recent interview when asked about being compared to Katrina Kaif, Jacqueline said that she has a long way to go before people start comparing her to Katrina.
She further added that Katrina has always been an inspiration and she has always been her fan. She also said that Katrina is a reference point for her given the similar circumstances that they have come from.
Jacqueline further praised Katrina for the amount of hard work she puts into anything she does.
Now that is some admiration we hear from Jacqueline and we wonder what Katrina has to say about it.

Recently, Kareena Kapoor Khan, in an interview praised Priyanka Chopra for her diligence towards her work and making it big in Hollywood. Kareena even admitted that she has no plans to work in a Hollywood film as she is married and that her priorities are different than Priyanka's. When Priyanka Chopra was recently quizzed about the same and asked to comment on the compliment Kareena gave her, she said, "Thank you for acknowledging my work. I really admire her for being that way for me. I am grateful for words that came from her." Now, who says that two actresses can't be friends?

The world knows how Kareena Kapoor Khan and Priyanka Chopra have always been arch rivals ever since they worked together in 'Aitraaz' in which PeeCee, through her brilliant performance of a villain, stole the entire limelight from Bebo. Interestingly, they never shared screen together after 'Aitraaz'. However it seems both Kareena and Priyanka have let bygones be bygones and this is truly evident from what the former said about the latter during her media interactions. Priyanka is already taking Hollywood by storm and Bebo seems to be very proud of her. "I really respect Priyanka for having that zest. She is a global icon and probably the only mainstream actress to put India on a global map. In fact, I feel that because of her, we are being recognised outside India as well." This, coming from Kareena, is really heartwarming. For those not in the know, few moons ago, Priyanka was shooting at a suburban Mumbai studio and when she got to know that Kareena too was shooting at an adjacent floor, PeeCee went and met her and they both had a hearty chat over lunch.

Kareena's statement about Priyanka assures that she probably won't have any 'aitraaz' working with Priyanka now. Click on the next slide to know which other actresses went on a praising spree for their arch rivals... by Hiten J Trivedi

Sonam Kapoor tends to follows a “no filter” policy when it comes to speaking her mind out and we love that about the diva. Be it on social media or in interviews, the actress has always been at her honest best. Though her honesty has often landed her in trouble, Sonam has never refrained from keeping forth her views. And the actress was at it yet again! The ‘Neerja’ actress recently took to Twitter to slam body shamers. She tweeted, “Fat shaming or skinny shaming… It’s still body shaming!” Not before long, Anushka Sharma retweeted Sonam’s tweet saying, “Word.” Sonam was quick to reply back to her supporter, saying “AnushkaSharma people are just J of you! Coz you’re a self respecting intelligent successful beautiful woman!!!” Well, we sure agree with Sonam. What do you think, folks? Post in your comments below!

While “catfights” and “jealousy seem to be the ruling synonyms when it comes contemporaries and competitors in B-Town, the new lot of divas is going all out change that impression and enter a mutual admiration club. A couple of days ago, we had Priyanka cheering for Deepika for her ‘xXx’ stint and now we Katrina Kaif, who is all praise for Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone, Kangana Ranaut and Alia Bhatt. The ‘Fitoor’ actress recently covered L'Officiel with her director, Abhishek Kapoor and while talking to the mag about her contemporaries the actress went on to say how they are all doing some really great work.

While Katrina has definitely slapped rivalry rumours in the face, Priyanak too did the same recently when she expressed her delight at Deepika's success. Move on to read about it… by Kiran Kaur

Soon after Deepika Padukone signed her first Hollywood project, ‘xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage’ with Vin Diesel, news about Priyanka Chopra too bagging her first international movie, ‘Baywatch,’ emerged where she will be seen donning the role of a villain. This gave rise to rumours of a possible rivalry between two leading Bollywood ladies. But Priyanka’s latest tweet has put all rumours to rest. A while ago, Deepika’s ‘xXx’ co-star, Ruby Rose complemented Pee Cee’s hair in a tweet that read, “Ruby Rose joked about Priyanka’s show ‘Quantico’ and said, "I thought the Quantico ad was a Pantene ad. But then I thought it was weird with the guns and all.” Well to this PC fondly replied, “Awww thank you Ruby Rose. Great hair comes naturally to Indian girls. Sure Deepika will concur. Good luck with `xXx...'.”

Kriti Sanon confesses she was scared of her Dilwale co-star

It is not uncommon for newcomers to be thrilled and at the same time be a little nervous around senior actors, let alone working with legends like Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol. It was only natural for one-film old, Kriti Sanon to be dealing with nerves while working with the two in Dilwale. In an interview with DNA, the actress spoke at length about her experience working with SRK and Kajol where she embarrassingly admitted that she was more scared of Kajol than SRK. Why you ask? Well, that’s because Kriti got the chance to spend ample time with SRK before they actually gave a shot together and this made her comfortable with King Khan. This, however, wasn’t the case with Kajol. But despite her intimidation, Kriti went on to praise Kajol saying that the latter was a great actor and that she (Kajol) even gave her (Kriti) suggestions to improve and improvise.
