Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif have been at loggerheads for a long time now. While the Padmavati actress is busy with her upcoming period drama with Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor, Katrina Kaif is busy rekindling romance with Salman Khan in the snow-capped, picturesque regions of Austria. The buzz is that Katrina Kaif has been replaced with Deepika Padukone as the brand ambassador of beauty brand Loreal. Now it is revealed why the cosmetic giant went for Deepika instead of Kat.

While it was projected that Katrina Kaif is planning to start her own beauty venture and stepped down as the ambassador of Loreal to avoid conflict of interest, in reality, the brand was not too happy with her and hence replaced her with more popular Deepika Padukone. According to a leading tabloid, the company faced some issues with Katrina as their working relationship with her was not that smooth. Also, it was observed that her presence as a brand ambassador did not garner enough popularity and so replaced her with the Padmavati star. In fact, Katrina has no plans to launch her cosmetic brand anytime soon.ALSO READ: Not Deepika Padukone, but Katrina Kaif will romance Hrithik Roshan in Kabir Khan’s next

So, it is Deepika Padukone who would walk for this cosmetic conglomerate at Cannes and not Katrina Kaif. Sonam Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai who are regulars at the French Riveria will accompany her. While Katrina has Tiger Zinda Hai with her right now, Deepika Padukone has not signed any other film after Padmavati as she wants to concentrate on the controversial historical drama. Interestingly, both are pitted against each other as they are in a race to bag Kabir Khan’s next with Hrithik Roshan. India.com also exclusively informed you how Deepika is out of the race because she is already busy with Padmavati and is scouting for other Hollywood projects. Katrina also happens to be a close friend of Kabir’s and has an amazing working relationship with Hrithik Roshan.(ALSO READ: Deepika Padukone REPLACES Katrina Kaif to shine at Cannes 2017! – see picture)
