Bipasha Basu’s dating Shahid Kapoor?

Bipasha Basu is glowing these days. Her good friends have been talking about the new mystery man in her life for weeks now, but the dusky actress has so far only admitted to dating “someone new”, refusing to reveal his identity. The secret is out now. TOI has learnt that the screen siren has been dating Shahid Kapoor!

Says a source, “For over a month now, Bipasha has been talking about a very sweet guy in her life. She’s been telling friends that he’s an eligible young man and has been showering her with gifts and some much-needed attention. She’s been gushing to her friends about how “sweet and affectionate” he is. Bips maintains that while they are not serious yet, he’s been wooing her persistently and she’s basking in the warmth of his adoration.”

Considering they’ve never worked together, everyone’s wondering how the two met. Apparently they were introduced by Shahid’s trainer, Abbas. Shahid is as much of a fitness junkie as Bipasha — that was a common bonding subject the first time they met. “Obviously they are only just getting to know each other, so Bips doesn’t want to jinx it by talking openly about Shahid,” says the source.

Both Bipasha and Shahid have recently split from their long-time partners ( John Abraham and Priyanka Chopra, respectively) and don’t want their budding romance to come under the spotlight. A couple of weeks ago, however, Shahid was spotted with hickeys on his neck during a shoot and people on the unit pulled his leg about it. He refused to comment on the mystery lady who ‘marked’ him, but was later spotted out and about with Bips. Adds the source, “On Saturday night, Shahid hosted a small party at his newly-renovated Andheri home. There were about 20 guests, and Bipasha was also present. Shahid had invited only a handful of his close friends, including Siddharth Anand, Karan Johar, Anushka Sharma, Sonam Kapoor, Ayesha Takia and husband Farhan Azmi, Ahmed Khan, so her presence there raised quite a few eyebrows.”

When asked, Bipasha claims she hardly knows Shahid. His spokesperson on the other hand says, “They are friends, just as he is friends with other people in the industry. The news of them dating is untrue.” Ho hum!
