Nine months since their break-up, former lovers Bipasha Basu and John Abraham may put up a front of being cordial and in touch — even endorsing a hair colour brand during that time — but the truth is that they aren’t on talking terms with each other.
An insider reveals, “Bipasha gave nine years of her life to the relationship, even putting her career on hold whenever John needed her. She felt that everyone else was giving her so much love and respect, except John; that’s when she decided to end the relationship. Naturally, when their relationship ended, she chooses not to keep in touch with him. She made up her mind to move on and cut herself away from her past. .”
The source adds that Bips doesn’t want to be in love just for the heck of it. “She was 22 when she fell in love with John. Now she’s single for the first time in years and is enjoying the lack of baggage that comes with a relationship. Bips is enjoying the male attention coming her way, and is being linked to quite a few eligible men. However, she has no plans to be in a committed relationship for some time now. Work is the only thing she’s focussing on.”
When quizzed about whether she’s in touch with John post their parting and Bipasha says, “I choose not to be in touch with him; I am happier this way.”
What about her alleged closeness to Hollywood heartthrob Josh Hartnett, who is starring with her in the upcoming film Singularity? “Josh is wonderful, but in another country, so it’s impractical! Right now, I don’t think I have the energy to be in a relationship. Josh and I are very fond of each other and try to keep in touch, but I am not romantically attached to anyone currently. There is more to life than just men. I am doing a romantic comedy with R Madhavan soon. It’s a mad film and I’m really looking forward to it. It’s only work for me for now.” TOI
