Kareena Kapoor vs. Priyanka Chopra
The No.1's who were never to be - that, in hindsight, has been the Bollywood career status of Kareena Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra.
Both arrived with fanfare, got more than a fair share of opportunities to shine through, and despite their occasionally success struts on national glory ramp, they still don't count as serious, can-take-it-all-on actresses.
The reason is simple and obvious: They are star material not the stuff that great actresses are made of. Or not. You can debate.
