It’s the season of weddings in Bollywood. Anushka and Virat got married in 2017 end. Sonam Kapoor just got married with her beau Anand Ahuja and soon after Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi surprised everyone by getting married away from everyone’s eyes.
Love is in the air and we can’t help but remind of some great love stories of Bollywood which couldn’t see a happy ending. John Abraham and Bipasha Basu’s love story is one such example.
At one point of time, John and Bipasha were one of the most happening Bollywood couples. Fans were just waiting for them to announce the wedding, but soon the shocking news of their breakup arrived.
Both of them moved on their life later. John married Priya Runchal and Bipasha married Karan Singh Grover but their affair is still unforgettable and so is their breakup.
Like their love story, even the breakup made a lot of tongues wagging. While John claimed that it was a mutual decision to break up and everything was amicable, Bipasha had to tell a totally opposite side of the story.
Talking with TOI, Bipasha Basu had told that she was extremely hurt with the breakup and it was not amicable at all. She had said-
“No. It was definitely not amicable. No break-up is ever amicable. Otherwise, no one would break up. There are always reasons. Otherwise, there won’t be any break-ups.”
Further talking about how she handled the breakup, she said-
“I believe everything negative that happens in your life is for a positive reason. If your heart breaks, you know that you are a human being and it happens. But you can’t mope over it. There’s only one life. You better get on ahead and fast. Fast enough not to let your past ever catch up with you.”
In another interview with TOI when she was asked about can exes be good friends, she said-
“Yes, exes can be good friends, but after a certain time. Though no break up is a good break up, time heals everything, including broken friendships. It also depends on the kind of people they are, their mindsets and the reasons for the break ups. But cheating, infidelity and deceit are generally tough to forgive, and in those cases real friendship is not possible. “
Bipasha Basu had also confessed in an interview-
“I felt abandoned. I was living in a *la la land* till then. Now sitting today I feel I was so foolish. During those nine years, I retracted from my work, pushed back opportunities, stood like a rock for the man I loved, did not meet people just to give that extra time to make my relationship work and then I realised that the thing I was working so hard for was gone overnight. It took me months to realise that it’s over and I am abandoned. I went through a lot of pain. I used to howl, went into isolation, it hurt.”
Isn’t that sad?
