After few days of Dev Anand’s death, Dilip Kumar revealed in an interview that they both used to travel together in the local trains, when they were strugglers. Their friendship was strong even after they achieved stardom. The relationship soured because of the dispute between Dilip Kumar and his brother Nazir. Dev was friendly with Nazir too; this didn’t work out with Dilip. Gradually, their friendship soured, though they used to meet formally.

They were good friends initially, and never had conflict with each other. Nobody is aware of the reason that why their friendship ended. Rumour has it that they tried avoiding each other during the shoot of ‘Kaala Patthar’. After this film, they didn’t do any movies together, and they even avoid each other on events and functions. At present, they share a sober bonding with each other.

Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan

These two never got a chance to be friends. When Rajesh Khanna’s career was on peak, he and Amitabh did ‘Anand’ together. The film gave a kick-start to Amitabh’s career and audience noticed him. Few years later, their bonding started on the sets of ‘Namak Haram’. By this time, Amitabh rose to be a superstar, and Rajesh Khanna’s popularity was degrading. Critics were comparing Amitabh and Rajesh, and this professional rivalry became so worst that they couldn’t stand in front of each other at all. With the passage of time, their relationship became normal.

Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan

Shahrukh happily admitted that Salman gave him a place to stay when he was new in Mumbai. They were very good friends and shared a healthy bonding. But sadly, their bonding broke after they had a public spat, and the hostilities still continue. Publically, they do praise each other’s work and give each other good luck wishes, but inner sources know how actually their relationship is. Rumour has it that both of them try to sabotage the each other’s film.

Rani Mukerji and Aishwarya Rai

This is something really impossible to do- remaining friends even when competing to bag the same role, but their bond broke when Shahrukh chose Rani over Aishwarya, for the film ‘Chalte-Chalte’.  The two of them never could repair their broken friendship, and because of this, Rani was not even invited in Ash-Abhi’s marriage ceremony.

Imran Khan and Ranbir Kapoor

It’s really not possible for two hot, young heroes, to remain friends for long. But, Ranbir and Imran were friends even after they were each other’s competitors. Their relationship soured when Imran’s wife Avantika publically gave negative comments on Ranbir about his performance in ‘Raajneeti’. Ranbir didn’t like her personal comments, and from that day their friendship bond ended.

Kareena Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra

The two of them were great friends at one point of time. It was heard that Kareena got upset with Priyanka when she mimicked her character from ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gum’. Jealousy is also said to be one of the reasons, on which their friendship ended. Though people say that they have moved on, but nobody knows the realty.
