Mumbai: The smoke did arise a while back about Bipasha’s love affair with hot-shot Rana Duggabati, but the actor doused it off immediately before speculations about the alleged romance spread like wildfire, claiming that they were just good friends.
Rana maintained that he was in a steady relationship with his long-time girlfriend Trisha and there was no way he was digressing from the beautiful relation he shared with the South Indian actress.
But now the grapevine has it that Trisha and Rana have parted ways and it is believed that Bipasha might have been the reason for discord between the love birds.
According to a source, “Rana`s flirtatious ways and rumours of his closeness to Bipasha Basu irked Trisha. Also, his Hindi film commitments made it impossible to divide time between Mumbai and Hyderabad. Trisha`s Bollywood career, on the other hand, never really took off after ‘Khatta Meetha’ failed to make an impact.”
Interestingly, Rana too is learnt to have had a quite colourful love life as before Trisha, the dishy actor dated another hottie from the South, the very gorgeous Shriya Saran. But their budding romance could not graduate to the next level because of Trisha’s entry in Rana’s life. Looks like Trisha is readying herself for the same fate as Saran after Bips’ entry in Rana’s life!
