Bipasha Basu irked with constant rumours of her split with John Abraham

Bipasha Basu is completely irritated with constant rumours of her split with boyfriend John Abraham . The rumours just refuse to die down in spite of the couple making several public appearances together. Recently Bips was spotted at good friend and designer Rocky S’s fashion show walking the ramp along with boyfriend John. The duo was also spotted at the launch of Rocky’s home line interiors. However what has really irritated Bips is the fact that people claim that John and she are only making public appearances together to keep up the charade that they are still together.According to some media personnel Bips even looked bored and uninterested walking down the ramp with John for the fashion show. An irritated Bips claims “I think people should just stop speculating about my relationship with John as if I’m seen with John, it’s a problem and if I’m not seen with John even that’s a problem.” Bipasha claims that the rumours have not really affected them and they even recently flew down to Goa for a get away. Bips further says “I guess we being together just doesn’t make an exciting story. Now it’s more exciting news to say that we are splitting. But we didn’t walk the ramp to prove to people that we’re together. We’ve enough confidence in our relationship.” Bips claims that the only reason that both she and John walked the ramp was because they both cannot refuse Rocky as he is a dear friend.Bipasha is equally irritated with remarks that she was seen clinging on to John at both the events. But Bips claims that she has every right to cling on to John and he to her as they are both in a relationship. Bips also claims that she is not the type to pretend to be in a relationship if it has ended. She says “Both John and I are too honest and too popular individually too use this relationship for more popularity. Neither of us needs to cling to each other.” Recently John and Bips were also seen at a Durga Ma pooja with Rani Mukherjee, but in spite of their various appearances together John continues to be linked with actress and co-star Vidya Balan in his forthcoming film Salaam-E-Ishq.

Who will look sexier : Aishwarya or Bipasha?

Aishwarya Rai is among the most beautiful women in the world, while Bipasha Basu has captivated many with her sex appeal.
Sanjay Gadhavi's film Dhoom 2 will see a reversal of roles for Ash and Bipasha. Ash, who has so far shunned sexy roles, will play a sensuous girl in the film. On the other hand, Bipasha, who has for long enjoyed the reputation of an oomph belle, will tone down and play a cop.
Obviously, Bipasha’s character will not be a very glamorous one. She will be seen as a chic and upright cop. However, sources reveal that Bipasha will indeed have her few moments of oomph in the film.
Those who expect sex appeal should rather turn to Aishwarya who is specially slimming down to get into a bikini figure even as the film’s shooting is presently underway in Namibia.
Ash is working out and taking fitness tips from her co-star Hrithik Roshan to lose the extra fat she acquired for Mani Ratnam’s film Guru .
On previous occasions, the movie’s co-producer Aditya Chopra has said that the film will not portray Ash as a sexy siren, but her character will indeed have some sex appeal.
The film has Hrithik playing a clever thief. Ash plays his sensuous, seductive partner in crime.
On the opposite side, Abhishek and Bipasha play two cops.
‘Dhoom 2’ also stars Uday Chopra . The film will release in November this year.

Bipasha too tall for Emraan

Bipasha Basu, who was approached for Kangana Ranaut's character in Woh Lamhe refused the role because Emraan Hashmi was cast opposite her.
It was not Emraan's kissing images that troubled her but it was just that she thought she would look taller and bigger than Hashmi.
“It’s a fabulously written script. After a long time, a strong role was coming my way, essentially a woman-centric film. The only problem was the pairing.”
“Emraan is great at his work. I know him from the days he was an assistant director. My only problem is his physicality, so far, he has worked with petite heroines; I am way too tall and big for him.”
Later even Emraan walked out of the movie because he felt that he does not have a very strong role in the film. Mohit Suri, who is Emraan Hashmi's cousin wanted him in all his movies but could not do so in this one.
Woh Lamhe now stars Kangana Ranaut and Shiney Ahuja in place of Bipasha Basu and Emraan Hashmi.

'Suicide? Marein mere dushman

Soon after the title of a style diva came rumours that she had committed suicide. Priyanka Chopra reveals how she takes the good with the bad. Kareena Kapoor and Bipasha Basu have been pipped to the post of Asia's sexiest woman. The lady who is the style diva today is Priyanka Chopra... and things, according to her, don't get any better than this. "I am zapped... I don't even consider myself stylish. And the title is specially flattering because others in the fray were among the sexiest women in this country. And all along I thought I was termed as this wannabe in Bollywood. Frankly, I've never thought that I was attractive. And not that my last few films have depicted me as a sex goddess," she says.

DNA - After Hrs - Bipasha Basu opts for a short cut! - Daily News & Analysis

Bipasha Basu says she's been wanting to chop her long mane for the longest time. "Even when I was small, my sisters and I used to have these long, thick plaits and I used to long to sport short hair. So when this opportunity came up, I said why not? Of course my designer Rocky S and my stylist Sapna Bhavnani pushed me into it. When she cut my long hair, I was a little scared. But later I liked what I saw. It's kind of cute. I'm bored with the same long straight hair that everybody in Bollywood is sporting."
Sapna Bhavnani of Mad-O-Wot says, "Bipasha is one of the few actors who's ready to keep changing her look all the time. Her role demanded that she sport short hair, but I didn't want her to wear a wig as most people do. Besides, it's the perfect summer cut." Sapna, who has also given a new look to Aishwarya Rai in 'Dhoom 2' says, "While actors are sporting modern looks, actresses are still stuck with that age-old straight 'chapta' look."
Bipasha adds that her directors, her mom and her sister "loved the new look." What about John Abraham? "He hasn't seen it as yet as he's on a world tour. John is the kind who likes long hair on women. He was very apprehensive and kept telling me to check it on the computer, before actually cutting the hair. But even if he doesn't like it, it's okay. He sports long hair, obviously not to please me, but to please himself!"
