Short-lived Shahid, Bipasha fling enters splitsville


Barely months after getting together, Bipasha Basu and Shahid Kapur 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 short-lived.
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 Maro Dum’ co-star Rana Daggubatti the perfect opportunity to play knight in shining armour though. He’s being a good friend to Bipasha and helping her deal with the break up. While Bips was upset with the way Shahid ended things, her friends have told her to think of him as a rebound man and move on with life,” says a close friend.
