Post her breakup with John Abraham, Bipasha Basu has flaunted her single status by being ‘friends’ with most bachelors in the industry. But what initially began as a fun journey may now have turned a bit professional, say insiders. Last weekend, the actress was spotted dining with not one, but two of Bollywood’s leading actors till the wee hours of the morning, Shahid Kapoor and Salman Khan. If insiders are to be believed, Bips seems to be on a patch-up spree with actors with whom she had maintained a distance during her decade-long relationship with John. She began her weekend with a lavish dinner spread with her rumoured ex-flame Shahid Kapoor. This continued till 2.30 am. But Bips wasn’t done yet. She brought her weekend to a fascinating end by dining with Salman Khan at a Michelin-star restaurant in Bandra.
While an eyewitness confirmed the actress’ presence at the table with Salman, an insider revealed, “They were chatting like old friends. They worked together in No Entry and have maintained a cordial relationship ever since, despite her then boyfriend, John’s less than friendly relationship with the actor. Now that she has broken up with John, she may want to strengthen her relationship with Salman.”
Another source claims that all this may have to do with Bips’ career goals. “She may want to work with these men. Bips is currently on a break from films and meeting actors is a good way of keeping one’s work life active. She doesn’t have too many films in her kitty. Meeting Khan is a good way to get into his good books specially since the lead actress for his next film Sher Khan has not been finalised yet.” We would have loved to hear Bips’ side of the story. However, despite repeated attempts, she remained unavailable for comment.
