When Kareena called Bipasha ‘Kali Billi’ and slapped her

Kareena Kapoor Khan and Bipasha Basu had a major showdown during the shooting of ‘Ajnabee’ in 2001. The two beauties not only had heated exchange of words but also got physical with one another. If reports are to be believed then out of rage Kareena called Bipasha ‘Kali Billi’ and even slapped her.

Their brawl started over costumes. When Bebo's designer gave Bipasha a helping hand without informing her, things turned worse. The two had a heated argument and fumed Kareena called Bipasha a "kaali billi (black cat)" even slapped her.

Bipasha told Filmfare in 2001, "I think this is a case of making a mountain out of a molehill. There were never any problems with me. She had some problems with the designer. I don't know why I was pulled in. It was quite childish."  She also said that she will never work with Kareena again.

Kareena too placed her side of story in an interview to Filmfare in 2002. She had said, "She just doesn't seem to have any confidence in her own talent. In a four-page interview, she spoke about me for three pages. Why not talk about your work? I think her only claim to fame is that she fought with me during Ajnabee over dress designer Vikram Phadnis. She's given statements that I called her uncharitable names. Now, that's a figment of her imagination."

Their cold vibes did not end there. Kareena also took a jibe on Bipasha’s then boyfriend John Abraham. She called John Abraham "expressionless" on the second season of Karan Johar’s chat show ‘Koffee With Karan’ and said that she wouldn't want to ever work with him.

Bipasha did not spare Kareena and hit back at Kareena saying she had "too many expressions." But a year later, in 2008, Kareena buried the hatchet with Bipasha and invited her to Saif Ali Khan's birthday party. Since then, they broke the ice and remained cordial.
