Bipasha Basu and Rana Daggubati not on talking terms!

Bipasha Basu got a very nice friend in the tall, dark and incredibly handsome Rana Daggubati, who came just on time when she broke up with John Abraham. The duo was also spotted together at various parties and events making rumour mills all agog about their alleged link-up. Now, it’s heard that the two are not even on talking terms.

The close friendship between the two couldn’t stand the test of time. Insiders claim that there were “issues” from the beginning, and that could be the reason why the two never admitted that they were dating. Recently, Rana was spotted cozying up with the south actress Trisha at the Sunburn music festival, and interestingly Bipasha Basu, too, was supposed to be there. However, she apparently backed out at the last minute citing shooting schedule.

According to a source,

Rumours about them seeing each other helped him gain publicity, and she being a successful, single woman, really did not mind the link-up. It surely helped their film. And though they were friends, at this point they have lost touch.

Being from South film industry, Rana Daggubati has set his foot in Bollywood with two movies presently in his hand, putting behind him the debacle of Dum Maaro Dum last year. He is doing Ram Gopal Varma’s film Department, and, if true, he is also signed for an international film.

After her break-up with John Abraham, Bipasha Basu’s name was linked with various men. She was not only hooked with Shahid Kapoor, but also with her co-star from Singularity, Josh Hartnett. Bipasha even said once in an interview that she is going out for dinners with people she likes because that’s how it (relationship) starts.

To meet and talk, there has to be a reason, and as for now, the two good friends certainly lack that.
