Here's why Deepika Padukone is much wiser than Katrina Kaif
Katrina Kaif may have stolen Deepika Padukone’s dear boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor but today Dips is way ahead of Kats career wise. Katrina did many interesting projects and was hailed as the numero uno actress untill she got involved with beau Ranbir Kapoor. While Deepika was going through a lean phase at that point of time. So how this swap happened? Well, before you draw any conclusions and blame it on the female-charmer Ranbir Kapoor, we believe it’s not just mere change of fate or the influence of being with Kapoor lad.

Well, you may come up with 'hard work' and of course it pays off too. But there is something beyond that as well. And i.e. making some wise choices and taking smart decisions. Believe it or not Deepika’s choice of films has been bit better than that of Katrina and the way Kats refused some plum projects in the recent past, it quite comes as a shock. Agreed, sometimes you have to reject a movie or turn down a role (for various other reasons) but which project should be declined and which should be retained, that’s where it calls for prudency of taking decisions.
Deepika too had to walk away from few movies, however rejecting them on the contrary proved fruitful for her. Whereas the kind of films Katrina turned down, it only affected her career graph, which was scaling high at some time. Here's taking a look at the movies which both the leading ladies of Bollywood refused (as per the reports) to do respectively and how much harm it caused to them.
SULTAN: Deepika has not paired with Bollywood’s sought-after star Salman Khan. So not taking up SULTAN is obviously a great loss for her.
SHUDDHI: With several changes in the casting and a suspicion whether the film will be ever made, we believe Dips is safe in that aspect.
JAB TAK HAI JAAN: Though it was bagged by Katrina after Deepika rejected it, Dips didn’t lose much here as the Shah Rukh Khan starrer wasn’t that much successful as it was expected.
FAST & FURIOUS 7: It’s better to do a mindless Bollywood flick than being part of a Hollywood venture which might just offer an itsy-bitsy role. Deepika was sagacious to turn it down.
DHOOM 3: Though Deepika could have got the opportunity to pair up with perfectionist Aamir Khan, the third installment of DHOOM series didn’t have much scope for the leading lady to perform. It was out-an-out Aamir Khan film, where Katrina was clearly sidelined.
ROY: The film’s fate at Box-office says it all!
KICK and PREM RATAN DHAN PAYO: Besides SULTAN, Deepika was twice lucky to receive the offer of pairing opposite Salman Khan. However, both the times she missed out being part of these films. But looking at Deepika’s incessant progress and also the fact that these were/are purely Salman Khan starrers, Dips would have been overshadowed if at all she did them.
CHENNAI EXPRESS:This Rohit Shetty directed film was one of the highest grossers (which shattered all the records). Moreover, Dips performance (who played a south-Indian lass) was highly appreciated. All we can say is, it was a sheer loss for Katrina!
GOLIYON KI RASLEELA RAM LEELA: Doing Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus catapulted Deepika’s career to a new level. She even won the ‘Best Actress award’ for it. If at all Katrina would have accepted this film, she would have at least won her first award.
YEH JAWAANI HAI DEEWANI:It was yet another biggie that Katrina turned down and it went to Deepika’s kitty and as you know rest is history!
BARFI:BARFI! was applauded from all corners and its lead cast Ranbir Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Ileana D’cruz was also appreciated for their performance. Katrina, who was first offered this film as per few reports, indeed lost a good chance to not only do this film but also working along with beau Ranbir Kapoor.
GUNDAY: Katrina didn’t lose much on it as GUNDAY wasn’t a box-office success. But if we talk about the role of the actress in the film, we believe it was not to be missed one. Priyanka was certainly praised for her performance.
BAJIRAO MASTANI:It is yet another magnum opus from SLB we hear Katrina rejected (where other actresses would vie for it). And now Deepika and Priyanka are part of it.
SINGHAM:Though SINGHAM was purely meant for Ajay Devgn, it would have been a good change for Katrina doing this film. Moreover, she could have paired up with Ajay, formed an association with Rohit and in turn could add a ‘top-grosser’ in her already studded list.
With this we only deem that Katrina will have to plan her moves more accurately so as to beat the rivals or be at par with them!
