Wondering how Priya snuck into the once envied inseparable relationship between John Abraham and Bipasha Basu that eventually led to John calling it quits with Bips? According to a source the investment banker from Mumbai Priya Runchal’s brush with B’wood began in December 2010 when Priya began working out in the same gym that John and Bips used to visit regularly.
Initially it is believed Priya only had occasional and very formal chats with the star couple. With time however, she fell for John’s charming personality. John’s feelings were also mutual despite the fact that he was still in a relationship with the sultry siren Bips. Whether it was her film projects or her intensive workouts to maintain her killer figure, Bips didn’t notice the romance brewing between her boyfriend and her gym buddy, Priya, and this oversight cost her dearly.
The source added that even though Bips may have come across rumours about John seeing another woman she didn’t pay it any attention because she was very much in love with John. There was however one point of debate between the couple which eventually caused the rift in the relationship, namely marriage. The source clarified this aspect. Apparently, 33-year-old Bipasha who dated John for nearly a decade thought it was high time she legalised her relationship with John. She always shared these dreams of settling down and starting a family with John. But her macho boyfriend never took the issue of marriage seriously as he wanted to focus more on his career.
It took until February 2011, after almost ten years of dating, for Bips to realise that John wouldn’t ever marry her; it was then that she parted ways with him. Just months later, while still reeling under the agonising break-up Bips was shocked to learn that John had moved on in life and had found another woman. But what really astounded her was that John’s squeeze was none other than her simpering gym buddy Priya Runchal.
Doesn’t this sound like the plot of the Ranbir Kapoor starrer ‘Bachna Ae Haseeno’ in which Bipasha’s character (coincidentally a model turned actress) gets cheated on by Ranbir who gets a way to her heart and her bedroom by fake promises of marriage? So we are wondering how Bips didn’t see this one coming in real life!
