Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra have become rivals. At least thats what the news portals want us to believe. These two highly successful B-town actresses are now competing for the same space in Hollywood. Who is better ? Will Priyanka win the American box-office with her Baywatch reboot or will Deepika’s xXx: Return of Xander Cage become an international rage? Fans are polarised and both the actresses have their loyal followers campaigning for them. But is the comparison between Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone fair? We don’t think so. Here’s why
1) Experience matters
What people don’t understand is there is a gap between PC and DP. No we aren’t talking about age here. Our ladies have proved time and again that age is just a number that no one should be bothered about. The gap is in experience. Priyanka Chopra has been around in the industry for more years than Deepika. She has seen the evolution of the industry. PC debuted in 2003 while DP came along in 2007. So PC has done all sorts of films before making a mark. Deepika Padukone too debuted with a superstar and despite that, managed to shine bright in Om Shanti Om. With such a vast difference, do you think it is fair to pit them against each other?
2) Not same 2 same
Priyanka and Deepika’s roles are completely different in their Hollywood debuts. Priyanka plays a baddie, a stylish one at that. We are sure Baywatch has never seen such a deliciously sinister woman in their cast. She is going to rock that role, we have no doubts about that. Deepika on the other hand, plays Serena, who is part of Vin Diesel’s gang in xXx:Return of Xander Cage which is borderline intense. You can’t even call it a negative character because it isn’t as the film will be shown from the point of view of this gang. That means both the ladies are doing different things in their debut which clearly says there will be no common point to compare them and yet people are doing so.
3) Target audience
Baywatch and xXx: Return of Xander Cage are targeting two different audiences. Baywatch is a hit 80s show which was watched by many across the world. It is getting a cinematic reboot with Priyanka’s film. So people who have liked the earlier show will definitely check it out. There is a huge nostalgia factor attached to it. Deepika’s xXx however is a continuation of a series after a long years. It sees the return of the original lead cast with Vin Diesel and the series has been a popular one. People who love action will definitely check this movie out. There will be a spillover for sure but the films have clearly demarcated their territories in terms of audience.
