Ex-flame John-Bipasha reunites
John Abraham and Bipasha Basu who dated for nine long years until they part ways last year are going to share screen space in Ekta Kapoor’s ‘Shootout At Wadala’. Bipasha has a brief role in the movie. She is playing a prostitute and is Manoj Bajpai’s ladylove.
A source revealed, "Bipasha was signed long back, even before the film had its grand muhurat at Mehboob Studios, where the entire cast was revealed. However her name wasn`t announced. The whole idea of the makers was to announce her name during the release to use it as a marketing gimmick."
"Bipasha is paired opposite Manoj Bajpai. Incidentally, she plays a prostitute in the film who is instrumental, though indirectly, in the death of Dawood Ibrahim`s (Sonu Sood) brother, Sabbir, essayed by Bajpai. John`s Manya Surve masterminds the execution of the brother of his biggest rival Dawood and declares war. Incidentally, John and Bips will be seen shaking a leg in the song, along with Tusshar Kapoor,” added the source.
A source further says, "Ekta Kapoor has managed a coup for her next production Shootout at Wadala, which is currently on floors. John is her leading man, while Kangana Ranaut stars opposite him. Bipasha is the latest addition to the film, and she will have one scene in the film which leads to an item song."
When asked for a confirmation, Ekta laughs, "Aap ko pata chal gaya!" She refused to divulge anything further. Our source adds, "Whether John and Bips will have any scenes together is still being kept a secret, but the fact that they are ready to be in the same movie is a new beginning."
Well, John and Bips is following Shahid-Kareena, Anushka-Ranveer, Salman-Katrina's footsteps.
