The latest romantic rumour doing the rounds of Bollywood is: are Shahid Kapoor and Vidya Balan a couple?
The film industry would like nothing better than a romance between them. But reports of the handsome Shahid and pretty Vidya being seen together were dismissed by him as, “We had just gone out for lunch. I go with other friends too.”
“Vidya is my co-star and we are good friends. But this isn’t your Bollywood kind of good friend. I mean, she’s a nice girl, a fantastic co-star and one of the many friends I have,” said Shahid playing safe. “Incidentally, Sania Mirza is also a friend and we meet, but there’s no romance. I guess I’m an easy target because I’m single.”
Now, the two stars are coming together in Aziz Mirza’s Kismet Konnection.
“I’m scared of saying anything,” Vidya Balan said, “We worked together for 60 days in Toronto and I’m fond of Shahid, but just as a friend.” Reacting to comparisons between them and Shah Rukh Khan and Juhi Chawla, who were regulars in Mirza’s earlier films like Yes Boss and Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman, Vidya said, “I, too, would like to have an onscreen pairing with Shahid like Juhi had with Shah Rukh, and hopefully people will say the same thing about us a few years down the line.”
Kismet Konnection, not surprisingly, is about love and finding one’s soul mate.
