They say that sometimes fame can go to one's head.
And one star who seems to have acquired some rather starry ways is Deepika Padukone [Images]. Flushed with the success of her film, Om Shanti Om, opposite Shah Rukh Khan [Images], the young actress has been giving others associated with the film, the cold shoulder.
It started with the film's director Farah Khan [Images]. Deepika simply forgot to wish Farah on her birthday.
Now, the latest to get the 'treatment' is Shah Rukh's wife, Gauri Khan [Images]. The story goes that Deepika ignored Gauri, who produced OSO, at the recently concluded Lakme Fashion Week because she was too busy with her boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor's [Images] mother, Neetu Singh. The two were cheering for Ranbir, who walked the ramp for designer Arjun Khanna.
"She did not even say hello to Gauri and completely ignored her," a source, who was present at the event, told Gullu.
While Farah said she is used to this type of behaviour as she knows how the industry works, we do not know what Gauri thinks about it. Time will tell.
