  • Kanhaiya Lal and Sunil Dutt (Mother India) – The enmity arose because Sukhi Lala wanted to take advantage of Birju’s mother. In return, Sunil Dutt leaves no opportunity to tell him where his real place is.                                                                                
  • Naseeruddin Shah and Smita Patil (Mirch Masala) – Two of the greatest Hindi movie stars came together to give a performance worth remembering. The animosity between them was more of a fight about protecting one’s self-worth from lecherous males like the character Shah played.
