Bipasha is seen with her X-boyfriend Dino Morea. Both have made quiet a few public appearance together recently. They were found holding hands backstage at the IIFA. Now a close friend confirms that a reconciliation is on the cards.
Dino Morea and Bipasha Basu surprised everyone when they were spotted together at the launch of Rocky S’s new store in town last Monday. Now there are reports that both, Dino and Bipasha, were inseparable at the recently concluded IIFA awards in Yorkshire.
This raises the inevitable question – are the two working towards reconciliation? Friends close to them have confirmed that the two are working on their relationship to rid themselves of the ‘ex’ tag. That should be soothing for Bipasha, whose relationship with John has been coasting on troubled waters for a while now.
An eye-witness from the recently-concluded International Indian Film Awards (IIFA) says, “Both Dino and Bipasha were seen backstage and they seemed pretty comfortable with each other. All through the show, they were seen holding hands backstage. While there is already a lot of talk about them, after they arrived together at Rocky’s show, the fact that they were together at IIFA has added more fuel to the rumours. They were backstage catching up with each other while the actors were performing and they made no bones about it.”
Another source at IIFA says, “Both Dino and Bipasha have stayed friends even after their break-up a few years ago. It was like two old buddies catching up for Dino and Bipasha and they were extremely comfortable with each other. However, Dino seemed very happy and pretty excited.”
Rumours also suggest that Dino is keen to work with Bipasha and has also asked a couple of corporate houses to work on a subject around them.
Bipasha Basu and Dino Morea dated for more than two years before breaking up in mid-2002. They met when they were modelling and were one of the most talked about couples of Bollywood. Incidentally, Dino was on Bipasha’s side when she first made her debut with Ajnabee. After that, they paired up for one of the biggest hits of 2002 – Vikram Bhatt’s Raaz. They mutually agreed to break up, but have remained friends ever since. Dino went on to date designer Nandita Mahtani and Bipasha is dating John Abraham who made his debut in Jism with her.
They also did Gunaah, Rakht and Ishq Hai Tumse together.
Both Dino and Bipasha were unavailable for comment.
