Harman Baweja may have disappeared from the Bollywood radars of late but all eyes were on the actor at a recent awards ceremony in Canada.
The event that was attended by industry bigwigs saw Harman sharing a warm embrace with his rumoured ex Priyanka Chopra. Post their break-up a few years ago, it was the first time that the two were seen in such close proximity.
A source says, “During the awards ceremony both PC and Harman came face to face and unlike other estranged couples, they hugged each other warmly. This was probably the first time they were under the same roof after working together in What’s Your Rashee?”
Rumours go that while the actor’s sister Roweena and Priyanka continue to remain friends, Harman and she had not spoken in a long time.
“The hug sent across a message that all is well between the two and that they have buried the hatchet. Both of them have clearly moved on in life,” adds the source.
Trade expert and editor of Box Office India, Vajir Singh says, “Harman has a lot of talent which has remained untapped so far. He just needs one film
(in his favour) and tables will turn. He is good-looking, dances well and is a decent actor. However, his choice of films has not gone in his favour. The break will help him.”
Missing in action?
One of the most promising newcomers a few years ago, Harman suffered an early career setback when his debut film Love Story 2050 opposite PC sank without a trace. Bad press followed along with two more flop projects. Another film It’s My Life has been stuck since the past couple of years and he has another project with Shilpa Shetty’s home production that will be releasing sometime this year.
A source says, “Strangely, Harman has shunned the shutterbugs. Over the past few months, he has been linked to Bipasha Basu and there are rumours that the two are dating. Despite being an industry child, it has been a rather rough ride for him.”
