John and Bipasha broke up early this year, and are reportedly not interested in being seen together on screen
Ever since the word of John Abraham joining the cast of Race 2 has spread, rumours mills are churning out stories about John and Bipasha Basu finally coming face to face again for a film. The ex-lovers had shot for an ad post breakup, but had not starred in a film. Putting a rest to all the rumours, the Force actor says that he will not be sharing screen space with Bipasha in the Abbas Mustan thriller. The film is a sequel to Race which originally had Saif Ali Khan, Bipasha, Akshaye Khanna, Katrina Kaif and Anil Kapoor. The original cast has been retained minus Akshaye and Katrina. Bipasha will continue to portray Saif’s girlfriend even in the sequel. John and Bipasha will not be paired together in the film. Now that’s a downer, considering we all know that they share sizzling chemistry onscreen. Although we are unsure if this was a conscious decision on the part of the makers or did John and Bips demand to be kept out of each other’s way. While the ex-lovers say that they are cordial with each other, they have been consciously avoiding each other post the breakup. John however seems to be over Bipasha now that he has a new lady love in his life, on the other hand Bips is still on a wild hunt. All the best, Bips!
