It’s more for professional than personal reasons say sources
Bipasha Basu is on a slippery terrain professionally with none of her recent releases doing well at the box office. So she is now going the tried and tested route that most actress opt for – befriend a powerful actor!
Sources say two heroes in particular are on Bipasha’s radar currently – Salman Khan and Shahid Kapoor. Apparently, Bips seems to be on a patch-up spree with actors with whom she had maintained a distance during her decade-long relationship with John Abraham.
Last week, she met rumoured ex flame Shahid Kapoor over a lavish dinner that continued till the wee hours of the morning. Almost the very next day she was spotted dining with none other than Salman Khan at a Michelin-star restaurant in Bandra.
Eyewitnesses say that she and Salman (with whom she had worked in ‘No Entry’) were chatting like old friends. Earlier she had maintained her distance from the ‘Dabangg’ actor because of his problems with her then boyfriend John.
The buzz is that this may have something to do with Bipasha’s career goals. Since she doesn’t have too many films in her kitty now, sources say, it’s a good idea to bond with top heroes who have a huge say in casting in films.
While Bipasha didn’t comment on the issue, it remains to be seen if her attempts at networking will yield to something more concrete in terms of a film offer.
