In Bollywood, nothing is more fashionable than being in a relationship, denying it and then breaking up. Over the years many stars have indulged in this tradition and one couple keen on continuing it is Bipasha Basu and her one-time 'good friend' Rana Daggubati.
Rumours say that both Bips and her co-star from the 2011 flick ‘Dum Maaro Dum’ faced a lot bumps in their relationship ever since Rana was found cosying up with south Indian actress and the ‘Khatta Meetha’s’ leading lady Trisha at the Sunburn music festival in Goa. This added to the confusion of their status as neither of them had acknowledged nor denied their relationship, preferring to keep the world guessing about it.
Now reports say the whole affair was just a publicity stunt for their film ‘Dum Maaro Dum.’ According to sources, Bipasha might had admitted to going out for dinners and events with Rana as she would with any good friend. Apparently, the dusky actress didn't mind the gossip about a successful single woman seeing a young aspirant in Bollywood from spreading around.
However, all the rumours did beneift Rana immensely as it not only brought him into the spotlight but also fetched him a film with Ram Gopal Varma in addition to another international project.
The question that everyone is asking - did Bipasha and Rana pull a fast one on us?
