For Rana Daggubati, Bipasha just a friend

Mumbai: The rumour that Rana Daggubati and Bipasha Basu are dating has been making the rounds ever since the two paired up for ‘Dum Maaro Dum’, but the southern actor puts an end to it saying they are just friends.

"Bipasha Basu is nothing more than a friend. She is a very good friend in Mumbai. And that`s pretty much it," Rana, whose second Hindi film is ‘Department’ after ‘Dum Maaro Dum’, said.

Bipasha`s love life had been under speculation ever since her 10-year-long love saga with John Abraham came to an end. Rana says he has stopped bothering about media reports on his relationship status.

"I used to wonder earlier, but later I stopped bothering about these media reports. How many times will one deny these reports? Better ignore them."

Currently Rana is gearing up for the release of ‘Department’, which also stars Amitabh Bachchan and Sanjay Dutt. Directed by Ram Gopal Varma, the film is coming out on May 18.
