Bips denies rumors of link-up with Ranbir
Looks like, Bipasha Basu is uneasy of late. What with rumors of her hot-n-happening chemistry with Ranbir Kapoor being the talk of the town, the Bong bombshell is quite troubled. Since Bachna Ae Haseeno, her pairing opposite the much younger Ranbir has given way to many controversies. The sizzling rapport between the duo as a live-in couple, seems to have set off many a tongues wagging. Even the real life lovers’, Deepika Padukone and Ranbir’s, relationship seems bland in comparison. Moreover, the lighthearted leg-pulling session during a reality show seems to have just fuelled the fire.
Now Bipasha is scared that her relationship with John Abraham might go awry thanks to these rumors. She clarifies, “I do not identify Ranbir with John.” She justifies the chemistry bit by saying, “People liked me and John in Jism. They expected to see us in a romantic role in Goal as well. However, the film was about football and it didn’t work for us.” Ranbir seconds her opinion by saying, “An actor’s personal life does not relate to a film. The audience liked the chemistry of the characters of Raj and Radhika played by myself and Bipasha. It is more about the script. Maybe tomorrow Deepika and I will do another romantic film in the future and it will look better than this one.”
Deepika Padukone too seems untouched by the gossip making rounds. She says, “A lot of people have liked Bipasha and Ranbir and there are many who have liked me with Ranbir. It’s about personal choices. Some couples have worked and some have not. It’s not about personal chemistry. A real life couple need not be the best onscreen couple.” Point taken!
