Has Bipasha, Kareena war been reactivated?

Mumbai, May 10 - Some star or the other invariably ends up in a foot-in-the-mouth situation after every episode of 'Koffee With Karan'. Last time it was Bipasha Basu's turn.
Eyebrows have been going up ever since she commented that Kareena Kapoor had 'too many expressions' on her face when she performed on screen. This, the industry folks have presumed, was in retaliation to Kareena's comment some weeks ago that John was 'expressionless'.
But Bipasha is horrified by the tit-for-tat suggestion and told IANS: 'I'm not that kind of a person. I certainly don't believe in tit for tat. And my episode of 'Koffee With Karan' was recorded in the first week of December when I had no clue what Kareena had to say about John.
'In any case, everyone is entitled to her opinion. If Kareena thinks John is expressionless then so be it. He's a grown up man. He can fight his own battles. I certainly won't jump in the fray for anyone else, not even my boyfriend. I don't wish to start a war of words with Kareena or anyone else.'
The seeming retaliation has reactivated the whole Kareena-Bipasha war that goes back to the days of Abbas-Mustan's 'Ajnabee' when, during a stint in Switzerland, the two actresses had exchanged harsh words over Kareena's costume designer lending his talents to the Bengali beauty without her consent.
As for Bipasha's opinion on Kareena, 'I was asked what I felt about her acting. And I gave my opinion. I also made comments on Tanushree Dutta and Sunny Deol. And they weren't meant to be offensive.'
Bipasha has just returned from a long stint in Dubai for Abbas-Mustan's 'Race' to do a shampoo ad in Mumbai.
'It's strange. But on the show I was asked who's my favourite and I said Saif Ali Khan. When I said it, I hadn't even worked with him. If comments on the show are strategised in a particular way the interviewee can't help it.'
