Sometimes ideology stands as a barrier in love and something similar happened to lovebirds Bipasha Basu and John Abraham. They missed the company of each other at the IIFA event held in Colombo. The Tamilian issue has separated the two hearts. John who is a Malyalee strongly respects the sentiments of the South Indian and decided to quit the event whereas Bips has no choice but to attend as she has to promote her film, ‘Lamhaa’ at the event.
Says a source close to John and Bipasha, “Bipasha proceeded to Colombo at the last minute without John. This was the first time she attended theis annual jamboree without John and no, she wasn’t sulking over the matter.Bipasha had no choice but to attend because she had to represent her film Lamhaa in Colombo.”
Till the last minute Bipasha tried to influence John to accompany her but keeping in note the Tamilian sentiments, he opted out. Says a mutual friend of the couple, “John is very clear about being politically correct. He is a Malyalee and feels very strongly about South Indian issues. So even if it meant not spending quality time with Bipasha John decided to forego the pleasure trip.”
However, John brushed out the report saying, “I had work in Mumbai so I didn’t go. I’m completely immersed in pre-production work for Nishikant Kamat’s film.I can’t think of anything else at the moment.”
John might be politically correct but his sweetheart missed him a lot. Dressed in a golden short dress, she said, "I miss John. He is one person, whose company I miss the most here, not anyone else’s".
