Deepika Padukoen vs Sonam Kapoor: Who will Win Rabir Kapoor?

Saawariya and Om Shanti Om, two big banner Diwali movies are now facing strong challenge from each other ahead of their release on the same day. Both the movies will hit the screens on 9 November 2007. Sonam Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor will make their Bollywood debut with the movie Saawariya. Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, the movie is based on an eternal love story placed in a fantasy world. Om Shanti Om will also come up with a model turned actress Deepika Padukone who will make her debut with this movie. Deepika Padukone plays the female lead role of the movie whereas Shah Rukh Khan plays the male lead character of Om Shanti Om.

Moreover, there are some other things that will make you realize that how much competition is there between the two movies. Both the movies have been produced by two big production houses. Om Shanti Om is being produced by Red Chillies Entertainment owned by Shah Rukh Khan who has fame for his promotional skill. On the other hand, Saawariya is making from a Hollywood production house Sony Pictures. This is the first time, a Bollywood movie is going to be released from a Hollywood production house. So, you can understand that both the movies are strong enough to make it big in the box office.

To many, Saawariya and Om Shanti Om are going to be the most successful movies of this year. However, besides the competition between Saawariya and Om Shanti Om, there are some other competitions available around Saawariya and Om Shanti Om. Deepika Padukone and Sonam Kapoor will be seen in the female lead roles of the two movies. Both the actresses are new in the industry. So, Sonam Kapoor and Deepika Padukone will have to face some challenges from each other as both of them are considered to be the next star of Bollywood. So naturally there is a hidden competition between Sonam Kapoor and Deepika Padukone though they are reluctant to admit it.

Deepika Padukone has already been a popular face as a super model in India. Moreover, she has earlier acted in a Kannada movie titled Aishwarya. So, the proposal of Om Shanti Om could not come as a surprise to her. However, for Sonam Kapoor, it was a surprise when Sanjay Leela Bhansali asked Sonam Kapoor to play the female lead role of Saawariya. If the fame of Deepika Padukone as a super model is an advantage for her ahead of the release of Om Shanti Om then Sonam Kapoor also has some advantages to her credit. Sonam Kapoor was the assistant director of Sanjay Leela Bhansali for the movie Black. So, she must have acquired a good knowledge of acting from Amitabh Bachchan and Rani Mukherjee. Moreover, she is from a illustrious Kapoor family. Sonam Kapoor has also earned much attention as a daughter of Anil Kapoor. So, you can understand that how much competition the two newcomer have in them ahead of their debut movie.

So far, I have talked about the professional competition between Sonam Kapoor and Deepika Padukone. Now, let us come to the personal life competition between between them though much of them are rumor yet. The competition is reportedly for Ranbir Kapoor, the fourth generation of Kapoor family (no relation with Sonam Kapoor), who played the lead male character in Saawariya. It is almost known to all that Deepika Padukone has a romantic relationship with Ranbir Kapoor. Deepika Padukone even once talked about their relationship in the media. However, Ranbir’s parents did not want to make the relationship public thinking that it would have negative impact on the Ranbir’s career. Now, there is speculation in the media that Ranbir Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor have been romantically involved to each other. That is why, it has been reported that Ranbir Kapoor has given up his relationship with Deepika Padukone.

Ranbir Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor are childhood friends. So, if the rumors are considered to be true then the competition between Deepika Padukone and Sonam Kapoor in professional life now will come to personal life as well. Anyway, everything is rumor still now. However, it is also true that many more rumors came true in the past in Bollywood. So, you should not become surprised if there is really something between Ranbir Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor.

Now, ahead of the two aspiring movies of Bollywood, all are eagerly waiting to enjoy the battle. If the battle between Saawariya and Om Shanti Om is of outside then no doubt, the inside battle is now between Deepika Padukone and Sonam Kapoor. Now, the question comes in is that if battle is for Ranbir Kapoor or for profession?
