Deepika Padukone Desperate to Beat Katrina Kaif
The two actresses may have been polite to each other on that occasion for Karan's sake. But their animosity is still at its peak. A unit member says, "Actions speak louder than words. Deepika certainly hates Katrina and her objective in life is to be one up on Kat. Why else would she come on the sets of Rohan Sippy's Dum Maro Dum and tell the choreographer that the item song that was picturised on her to the remixed version of the 70s ditty Dum Maro Dum from Hare Rama Hare Krishna should be hotter than Sheila Ki Jaawani."
The insider continues, "Deepika said this to the choreographer with a smile, but there was a note of warning in her voice when she gave that diktat."
This story may be slightly exaggerated but it is certainly believable because Deepika does hold a lot of grudges against Kat. And the Bangalore beauty feels the only way she can get back at Kat is by scoring over her professionally. The source continues, "Since Sheila was the rage of 2010, Deepika wants Dum Maro... to be the rage this year."
An assistant director confirms that attempts were made to give this song the sexiest twist possible, but denies getting any diktat from Deepika. Incidentally one hears from another source that Kat does not approve of Ranbir and Deepika staying in touch on sms. Must say the drama happening here is material enough for a potboiler!
