Mumbai: Erstwhile lovers Bipasha Basu and John Abraham are all set to share screen space together albeit for just two scenes. Ever since the couple broke up in February this year, they have avoided each other like plague and starring in ‘Race 2’ would be a first for them post break up.
Unlike some other B-Town couples, Bips and John decided to not remain friends. In fact, recently when the two were shooting at Filmistan studios on different floors they ignored each other royally and did not bother exchanging pleasantries.
However, for the sake of their profession, they seemed to have agreed to do two scenes together in ‘Race 2’.
Speaking to a daily, a source revealed, “When Bipasha was shooting at Filmistan for Players in stage number 6, John was there too filming for Sajid Khan’s `Housefull 2` in stage number 3.”
“They came face-to-face several times, but completely avoided each other. Everyone on the sets noticed how they intentionally kept their distance from each other. But now the two, who have been cast in Abbas-Mustan’s Race 2, have been asked to do two scenes together. And both of them have agreed,” added the source.
When the daily contacted director Mustan he confirmed the news and said, “Yes, John Abraham and Bipasha Basu will be shooting two scenes together for `Race 2` .We narrated the story and scenes to both of them and like true professionals, they have committed to shoot together without any restrictions. ‘
Bips remained diplomatic and said, “I have nothing to say about it. I share a very good rapport with the filmmakers and so, I would do whatever they want me to do for the film. I have nothing more to say about it.”
Can’t wait for this ‘face-off’!
