Barely months after getting together, Bipasha Basu and Shahid Kapoor are no longer an item. The break up, if you can call it that, happened about two weeks ago — just after the release of Mausam and before Bips left for Greece for a shoot. The reason? Apparently Shahid became increasingly indifferent to Bips after the initial excitement of meeting someone new waned.
A source reveals,“Bipasha takes people at face value. Although they were only just getting to know each other, she was keen to see where things would go with Shahid. Post her break-up with John, she wasn’t in a hurry to get into another relationship. She was wary of opening up to someone new, but took a chance with Shahid as he really pursued her at the start.”
However, friends and acquaintances who hung out with the seemingly cosy twosome knew the courtship would be shortlived. The source adds, “They’re like chalk and cheese. Shahid is quite controlling, while Bipasha is a free spirit. After the initial high, Bips realised Shahid was slowly distancing himself from her. She’s not the sort of woman to do things in half measures or stay with a man who does anymore.”
The final straw was a minor fight that took place before Bips took off to Greece. “She was quite upset when it was over, as she didn’t think it would be so soon. This has given her Dum Maaro Dum co-star Rana Daggubatti the perfect opportunity to play More >
The reality show certified lovers have finally parted ways
Vickey Lalwani (MUMBAI MIRROR; April 28, 2011)
The affair started one torrid afternoon in the confines of a reality show house. And much like the many paperback romances, it blossomed in supersonic speed. Between fights, ego hassles, making up, intermittent nighttime cuddles and calls of ‘Aash- meet’, prospered a love story on prime time television.
Veena Malik, Indian televisions latest import from Pakistan and Ashmit Patel of the infamous MMS became reality television’s latest darlings.
The affair, which continued post the show with Veena delaying her return to her country, has just gone kaput. Uninvited for Ashmit’s sister Ameesha Patel’s big party held on Saturday, a very upset Veena left the city on Friday.
The affair had started to fizzle out long before that. , “It was a one-way affair from Veena’s side. She loved him, but he did not. I would say that they were never together,” says a friend of Ashmit.
Things started getting worse when Ashmit learned about Veena planting stories about them in the media. “This really bugged him. Ashmit didn’t want that kind of publicity,” informed Ashmit’s friend.
The couple however, did try to get lucky with their relationship while it was. When approached with a reality show offer worth Rs 30 lakh, the couple tried believing they were worth more, asked for Rs 50 lakh. The channel officials felt otherwise.
Despite everything, a friend close More >

Model-turned-item girl Yana has just ended her short but beautiful romance with dancer-boyfriend Salman Khan. Though Yana has never admitted to seeing Salman, it is known that they were dating for the past six months. The two hit it off instantly on the sets of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa and were spotted at several social dos hand-in hand as Yana introduced him to her industry friends and society celebs including the likes of Vijay Mallya. “Until the show was on, things were fine and their relationship was cruising, but once it ended, it was difficult for them to maintain their relationship. Yana began her second stint with B-town, as offers kept pouring in. She is very serious about her career and the two hardly got time like earlier. This created a lot of differences and finally, a few days back, they parted ways,” reveals a source. Yana, however, told BT, “What breakup? We were never dating!”

Sweta Keswani talks to Roshni K Olivera about her relationship with Alexx and why things didn’t work out in their marriage
Sweta Keswani and Alexx O’Neil’s marriage may have ended, but the two continue to remain good friends. Here, the actress talks about how and why things didn’t work out in her marriage and about moving on…
IT WAS NOT MEANT TO BE… “We both married our best friend, which I thought was the best thing to do. Over time, however, we realised that we had different goals, desires and needs for the future. Furthermore, our professional commitments, my long hours on the sets in Mumbai and Alexx’s frequent film shooting outside kept us apart. And after having spent so much of our two-year marriage in different places, we found that we hadn’t created much of a married life together. Nevertheless, I have no regrets; we’ve had a wonderful few years together and so many amazing memories! While Alexx is a great guy and remains my close friend, I realised that I need someone different in my life. We never fought or argued and it never got bitter – which is simply unbelievable to most people! And I am completely at peace with the way things worked out, in fact, I’m extremely grateful to him and our relationship; they helped me to understand my own limitations and shortcomings — things that I can work on in the future. These years and our split have been an empowering More >
Bipasha Basu spends some light moments with her co-star Josh Hartnett in Orchha, we get you the pictures and some juice
MUMBAI MIRROR; April 15, 2011
Mumbai Mirror had reported on Monday, April 11, 2010, how Bipasha Basu, a free bird after her break up with John Abraham, was being rather ‘friendly’ with Hollywood actor and her co-star Josh Hartnett on the sets of their period film Singularity. Now, we get you the evidence!
Our photographer Sachin Haralkar captured the two stars in Orchha chilling off the sets.
The actors looked comfortable in their refreshing summer attire taking a stroll down the hotel aisle.
Wearing a pair of hot-pants and a pale blue camisole, Bips looked casually sexy while Josh looked hot in a tee and shorts. However, what made the picture prettier was the smile on the actress’ face.
Captured around two in the afternoon, this picture was taken from the hotel lobby by Haralkar, when the actors were walking down together to have lunch.
Bipasha, whose room was on the other side of the quadrangle (the aisle they are seen walking through surrounds the quadrangle) facing the pool, came out to meet the Pearl Harbor star putting up in a room facing hers. Finishing lunch in an hour, the actors then rushed off to the sets of their film.
About Singularity, the film ► It is an epic romance, time travel adventure starring Bipasha Basu as Maratha warrior Tulaja Naik. Josh Hartnett plays James Stewart, a British officer in 1780s More >
Model Lalit Tehlan registered his marriage in Feb; beau Rohit Bal was kept out of the loop!
Prithwish Ganguly (BOMBAY TIMES; April 15, 2011)
Yesterday, BT broke the news that designer Rohit Bal and his model boyfriend Lalit Tehlan have split and that the ramp-scorcher is now getting married to Manizhe Karimi (Mandy). It now comes to light that Lalit is already married. And it seems like even his ex-beau Rohit is clueless about the developments. The model registered his marriage on February 18, 2011. Their marriage took place at Arya Samaj in Saket (see pic of the marriage certificate)
Says a source close to the model, “Technically, Lalit is not lying when he says he will get married. A traditional wedding is planned, this was just a registered one. The families are now gearing up for a grand wedding. It could happen soon now that they are in the middle of this controversy. Rohit, in the meanwhile, has been spotted with an older man at the recently concluded fashion week. His identity is unknown. Maybe, he too has moved on,” says a source. Lalit and Rohit remained unavailable for comment. The girl, for the record, is claiming that it’s not a “true certificate”. She says the name in the certificate (Manizhe) is not hers since her name is Mandana Karimi. She’s told reporters that they both are dating, but marriage is not on their minds immediately.

The actress, who was previously dating Canadian businessman W Brett Wilson (53), broke up with him last year. Lisa, who stays in Toronto, often travels to New York to spend time with her new beau.

She had a deep emotional connect with ex-boyfriend Brett as they are both cancer survivors. With Paolo, it is sheer romance. She was bowled over by him. He loves travelling, is spontaneous and they share the same view towards life and work. Lisa has confessed to friends that Paolo is the man she would want to spend her life with,” tells a source on conditions of anonymity.
Whenever he is in New York, she joins him. The two have been on biking trips together too. “Paolo loves the adrenaline rush from the sport and inspired Lisa to buy a mountain bike for their jaunts together.

Insiders insist they will soon exchange rings, mostly by the end of the year, in a private and More >
“Guys, I am single”…That’s the message sent from Bipasha Basu’s phone to every guy in her phonebook!
Prithwish Ganguly (BOMBAY TIMES; April 8, 2011) When Bipasha Basu, who has been vehemently denying her split from boyfriend of many years — John Abraham — sends a text message to every guy on her phonebook, saying ‘Hi, I am single’ it’s enough to cause a tsunami-like uproar. As word spread, it threatened to jam the mobile network, with the gossip girls and the bachelor boys forwarding Bips’ message to their friends.
Meanwhile, Bipasha who is shooting in Madhya Pradesh for her international film had no idea that she’d caused a furore with her ‘message.’ Says a source close to the actress, “Her phone went missing from the set, and remained untraceable for about 24 hours. She couldn’t remember whether she’d last seen her phone at the hotel or the set. The hotel staff as well as the production crew swung into action to find the phone, which was on switched off mode.
Bipasha was planning to lodge an FIR as she was worried about her phone being misused, but the next day, it miraculously turned up. The actress didn’t pay much attention to it, as she assumed someone had pulled a prank on her. But she was in for a rude shock when she turned the phone on and checked the sent items folder. The insider adds, “Whoever took Bipasha’s phone sent a text message to every guy in her phonebook saying she was single. She was distraught at this malicious More >
Bollywood power couples who’ve split up are being brought together by big budget endorsements and films
Sonal Chawla (MUMBAI MIRROR; March 30, 2011)
Nobody in Bollywood is ‘just good friends’ anymore. The A-listers have drawn inspiration from the bold and the beautiful Sushmita Sen and no longer hide their ‘on and off’ relationships. After all, it does have its advantages the much coveted media attention, big bucks from endorsements together and also the occasional publicity for a film.
And though, post breaking up, a star couple earlier would refuse to work together (Shahid-Bebo, Ash-Salman), these days money and movies motivate the exes to patch up real soon.
Recently John and Bipasha signed a one-year contract with a hair colour company. One of Bollywood’s longest standing couple, John and Bips, broke up recently. They signed this deal post their split primarily because of the big money.
They were offered approximately 5 crores. Moreover, they are still under a few ongoing contracts and have to continue their togetherness, at least on screen for the junta.
Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra had called it quits in February, finally, after going back and forth for quite some time now. Although they have parted ways, they will be doing Kunal Kohli’s next. Shahid is being paid approximately 6 crores, and Priyanka approximately 2 crores for the film.
An industry insider said, “Even though they have parted ways, they cannot decline projects coming More >
