Mumbai: Bollywood hunk John Abraham has found a new ‘friend’ in Deepika Padukone just days after his split with Bong bombshell Bipasha Basu.

Apparently, while Bipasha is hanging out with ‘Singularity’ co-star Josh Hartnett and ‘Dum Maro Dum’ actor Rana Daggubati, John’s latest squeeze is the dimpled hottie, who could not take her eyes off John, while shooting for Rohit Dhawan’s ‘Desi Boyz’.

Talking to a daily, a source said, “John’s camaraderie with Deepika has been the talk of the industry. Both appeared extremely comfortable, in each other’s company in London.”

“One never expected John and Deepika to bond with each other and that too so soon. But it has happened,” added the source.

When enquired about Deepika, John said, “She’s sweet and professional.”

Well, one wonders what Sidhartha Mallya has to say of this new friendship.

While Deepika was unavailable for comment, a close friend of the actress said, “How can she come down for all the matches to be with Sidhartha, when she was shooting for ‘Desi Boyz’ in London, during that time?”

Interestingly, Deepika Padukone has publicly not confirmed her relationship with Sidhartha Mallya.
