Is Jacqueline Fernandez a bigger star than Kajol?

Arguably Kajol is one of the most talented actresses that Bollywood has witnessed in the annals of Indian Cinema. She is one of the few actresses who has the ability to carry a film on her shoulder like the great veteran actresses of yesteryear like Meena Kumar, Nargis, Vyjantimala, Mala Sinha, Asha Parekh, Nutan etc.

In stark contrast the recent sex siren Jacqueline Fernandez is just a ‘glamour doll’ and in terms of talent she is nothing but nuts. Hence the query - Is Jacqueline Fernandez bigger star than Kajol seems nothing but absolute foolishness.

In fact readers would be surprised to know that Kajol, who is making her comeback after a gap of 5 years opposite her favorite actor Shah Rukh Khan in Rohit Shetty’s DILWALE, has been offered Rs 5 crore. 

Insiders claim that Kajol is offered remuneration at par with top actress of contemporary cinema like Katrina Kaif and Kareena Kapoor Khan. Thus even after losing her star status that she commended during her hey days, even today Kajol holds same esteem. 

So readers would be wondering how than is Jacqueline Fernandez a bigger star than Kajol. Well… Hold your breath! 

According to reports while Kajol is being offered Rs 5 crore for the entire film, Jacqueline Fernandez has been offered a whopping Rs 4 crore for just one night to dance at a wedding ceremony of a business tycoon’s son in London! 

So isn’t Jacqueline Fernandez a bigger ‘star’ than Kajol?

Why is Shah Rukh Khan miffed at Deepika Padukone?

Shah Rukh Khan, who is known for his cool temperament, particularly with his heroines, these days, is quite peeved at Deepika Padukone, with whom he shares a great rapport at the box office. Remember the hit films of the duo like OM SHANTI OM, CHENNAI EXPRESS and HAPPY NEW YEAR. 

According to reports Bollywood’s two big budget movies viz. Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol starrer DILWALE directed by ‘Numero Uno’ director Rohit Shetty and Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh starrer BAJIRAO MASTANI are at logger heads this December at the box office.

Shah Rukh Khan was expecting that Sanjay Leela Bhansali would push the release date of BAJIRAO MASTANI ahead and avoid clashing with his film DILWALE but hurting his ego Sanjay Leela Bhansali has dared to stick to the same date when SRK’s DILWALE releases. 

To rub salt to Shah Rukh Khan’s injuries, BAJIRAO MASTANI’s heroine Deepika Padukone has posted ‘Challenge Accepted’ while releasing the first look of her film BAJIRAO MASTANI, thus in directing hinting that she and her team are up for the challenge against Badshah Khan. 

The reason why SRK is more upset is because it was Shah Rukh Khan, who gave Deepika Padukone, the big break in his home production OM SHANTI OM and now the same Deepika Padukone is challenging him! 

What is worth remembering is that this not the first time when Sanjay Leela Bhansali has dared to challenge Shah Rukh. 

Readers may recall Sanjay Leela Bhansali had challenged Shah Rukh when he released his Ranbir Kappor’s debut film SAAWAARIYA opposite Shah Rukh Khan’s Farha Khan directed OM SHANTI OM and the result of this clash is known to all! 

Incidentally Deepika Padukone, who has challenged SRK, made her debut in OM SHANTI OM!!!
