When Lara Dutta and Mahesh Bhupathi appeared together at the Filmfare Awards in Mumbai on Feb 27, it was as if they were making a point. Was it 'We're together and we're not going to hide it anymore?' We're not sure yet but it sure does look like that. Their body language does match that of a couple in love. Even if the couple in question hasn't come right out and admitted that they're in a relationship.
It was in 2009 that rumours linking actress Lara Dutta and tennis player Mahesh Bhupathi first surfaced. The rumours, of course, were rubbished by Lara, who said that Mahesh's celebrity management company handled her portfolio and that was the only connection she had with him.
On his part, Mahesh also denied the relationship. Despite the denials, they were spotted together in London, and even thought to be staying in the same hotel suite.
So what's next for Lara and Mahesh? Watch this space for updates.
