Over the past three years, several big producers have tried to cast Deepika and Sonam in the same film, without success. Last year, Deepika and Sonam refused to pose together for a photo shoot of a fashion magazine.
There has been no love lost between the two divas ever since their debut movies Om Shanti Om and Saawariya clashed at the box office in Diwali 2007. The rivalry deepened after Deepika's much- reported affair with Sonam's Saawariya co- star Ranbir Kapoor. Sonam, who was close to Ranbir during Saawariya , was believed to be unhappy with Deepika's entry in his life.
Sonam has made jibes at Deepika's stardom hinging heavily on her sexy and glamorous image. " Deepika is mostly doing commercial roles and I am not," claimed Sonam recently.
Anil Kapoor's daughter, known more as a pretty face, has often mentioned how she wants to establish herself as a good actor rather than a sex symbol.
Deepika on her part has always played up that she is a self- made celebrity - hinting that Sonam's being in films has a lot to do with dad Anil's stature in the industry.
Asked about comparisons with Sonam, Deepika recently said: " There should be no comparisons as I am not from Bollywood and have achieved everything on my own." Apparently, Sonam had even refused to share the same platform with Deepika at the Filmfare Awards when she was asked to host a segment of the show with her. Finally, Konkona Sen Sharma had joined Deepika.
Among films that Sonam has turned down because Deepika would be her co- star is debutant Vicky Singh's Mera Jahaan , also supposed to star Ranbir.
She also declined the upcoming biggie, Desi Boyz that stars Deepika along with Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar and John Abraham.
Call it coincidence, but Deepika and Sonam come together on Karan's show at a time when Ranbir Kapoor is said to be getting real close to his Raajneeti co- star Katrina Kaif.
Karan has a track record of initiating patch- ups. In the past, he reportedly played a crucial role in getting Aishwarya Rai and Shah Rukh Khan to patch up. Will Deepika and Sonam kiss and make up on Karan's show?
