    When it comes to Bollywood, it is usually believed that most actresses don't get along well. A lot of times in the past, we have read stories of actresses who ended up fighting on the sets of a film, giving each other a cold shoulder or just attacking each other verbally. 

    It is not something new. Even veteran actresses like Sridevi and Madhuri Dixit, Raveena Tandon, and Karisma Kapoor have got into ugly catfights in the past. Well, it doesn't really surprise us because Bollywood is such a competitive industry and for one's survival, celebs have to be cut-throat. 

    In today's throwback story, we will take you back to the time when Anushka Sharma and Deepika Padukone were at loggerheads. 

    When Anushka Sharma Said There Is No Comparison Between Her And Deepika

    According to a report by, when Anushka Sharma was asked about her comparison with Deepika Padukone, she said, “There is not any comparison between Deepika and me. Nothing links us. We do different kind of films. actually she has done more films. i’ve been choosy. I have not picked up just about any role that came my way.”

    Anushka Sharma's dig at Deepika Padukone kickstarted the cold war and there were a lot of such instances that followed.

However, Anushka Sharma cleared the air saying that she has enough endorsements in her kitty already. According to a report by Bollybytes, Anushka Sharma said, "Today I command a premium. I have earned it. And I don't need to slash my prices."

She is Ayan's and whosoever's. I never pull anybody down. That makes me nice, right?"

Later, when the two appeared on Koffee With Karan, Anushka Sharma jokingly shared why she wouldn't ever date Ranveer Singh. She said, "You know why I wouldn't date him. He's a dirty boy."

    Their dating rumours still went strong back then. Later, there were reports that the two break up because of Ranveer's closeness with Goliyon Ke Rasleela: Ram Leela co-star, Deepika Padukone. We wonder if that was the reason why the cold war started.

    Today, it all seems in the past. Looks like both Deepika and Anushka had buried their differences and moved on. Anushka Sharma got married to Virat Kohli in the year 2017. Ranveer and Deepika tied the knot in the year 2018. On the work front, Deepika Padukone will be next seen sharing the screen with husband Ranveer Singh in Kabir Khan's directorial, 83. On the other hand, Anushka Sharma hasn't announced her next project.
