Mumbai: After the end of Salman Khan’s successful Dabangg Reloaded tour in US last month, we have heard that Sonakshi Sinha has unfollowed Katrina Kaif last month on Instagram. While the reason is not known yet, there’s speculation that it could be after Katrina signed Salman’s home production Bharat last week.

A source said, “There had already been reports of Katrina-Sonakshi’s cold vibes during the Dabangg Reloaded tour (June 22–July 8) – something which both dispelled by posing for lots of pics together on Instagram. 

"On the tour, Salman and Katrina were getting a lot of attention, so Sonakshi may have felt a bit left out. Before the US trip she had been following Kat for months and unfollowed her a little after the tour ended. Of course on the trip they behaved very cordially with each other. Sonakshi even tagged Katrina in her Instagram posts during the tour and posted a video of both exercising with the caption – ‘Exercising with Kat is hazardous to health’.”

Another reason that is being speculated for Sonakshi’s unfollowing Katrina is the latter signing Bharat. “While Katrina was possibly on board for some time, Sonakshi’s name was also speculated upon as having being approached too. Strangely, Katrina doesn’t follow Sonakshi on Instagram. Apparently, Sonakshi had earlier unfollowed Sonam (Kapoor) when she was finalised for Prem Ratan Dhan Payo and now she has unfollowed Katrina. She was hanging out with Kat just few weeks ago. 

"Sonakshi didn't wish Katrina on her birthday (July 16) too (at least on social media as many Bollywood stars did) but made it a point to celebrate Iulia Vantur’s birthday (July 24) just eight days later. Sonakshi even surprised Iulia by landing up at Salman’s home at midnight with Zaheer Iqbal and Niketan Madhok, with a birthday cake for her.”

The source added, “In Bollywood, actors and actresses portray friendships by posting photos or saying they never followed someone in the first place. During the Dabangg Reloaded tour, where there was talk of a cold war between Katrina and Sonakshi, they started posting photos of them together along with Jacqueline (Fernandez) thus showing to the world that everything was fine. 

"When there were reports that Jacqueline and Sidhartha Malhotra had grown close after he broke up with Alia Bhatt and Jacqueline had unfollowed Alia on Instagram, Jacqueline told the media that she had never followed Alia in the first place so one won’t be surprised to see some happy photos of Katrina and Sonakshi together soon!”
