Comparisons between Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra are commonplace, especially since both the Bollywood leading ladies ventured into Hollywood. But seems like Dippy isn't really fond of being pitted against her Bajirao Mastani co-star. However, the Tamasha star doesn't mind comparisons with other Bollywood actors such as Sonam Kapoor, Anushka Sharma or Sonakshi Sinha.
In an interview to DNA, the xXx- Return of Xander Cage actor said, "I know Priyanka very well for any sort of comparison. It feels weird being compared to her because our worlds are totally distinct." Deepika also stressed on the fact that her personal goals were very different to PeeCee's.
However, Dippy has no qualms about being pitted against the likes of Anushka, Sonam or Sonakshi since they broke into the industry almost at the same time as she did. "I can still understand comparisons with Sonam Kapoor, Anushka Sharma or Sonakshi Sinha or someone who entered the industry at the same time as I did," she said.
While Dippy might be a little sceptical about comparisons to PeeCee, the similarities between them are way too glaring to ignore. Apart from the obvious Hollywood connection, both made it to Ellen D Generes' talk show, and more recently, both were seen wearing black at the pre-Oscars party. While it's PeeCee's second innings at the Oscars, Deepika made her debut this year.
However, now that Dippy has said it out loud that there's no common ground she shares with PeeCee, we will try our best to stop. Well, maybe not.
On the work front, Deepika will soon be resuming her Padmavati shoot and she is also paging through many international scripts while Priyanka is busy promoting Baywatch, her debut Hollywood venture due to release this May.
