Buzz from the unit of Sajid Khan’s upcoming film 'Humshakals' is about the director’s proximity to the actress of his film Esha Gupta. Unit hands state that it was apparent that the two are extremely close as they spent a lot of time with each other.
Says a unit source, “They bonded well and it looked more than just a director-actress thing. The two have suddenly found things in common to give them company. Their close friendship raised eyebrows on the sets.” While shooting for the film in England recently, there was buzz that all is not well on the sets between Esha and Bipasha Basu, who is the other leading lady in the film.
Though Bips and Esha had worked earlier in Raaz 3, they apparently hit a rough patch for their second B-Town outing together. The reason for the cold vibes was that Bips was apparently irked that Sajid was favourably inclined towards Esha.
Adds the source, “Though Bipasha had later made it a point to deny it, the truth is far from it.” When Esha was selected for the film, there was speculation that this was the role, which was to be played by Sajid’s ex Jacqueline Fernandez.
After they split, she was out of the film. Some other names were tossed around but eventually Esha bagged the role. And looks like he is her new buddy in B-Town. Says Sajid, “Why only Esha? I am buddies with Tammanah (who also features in his film) and Bipasha as well. It’s always great to work with friends.”
