Not long ago we had heard that director Sajid Khan was bonding with Esha Gupta, who stars in the director’s film 'Humshakals'. But now the grapevine has it that the filmmaker has trained his sights on actress Tamannaah Bhatia, who, incidentally, stars in the same film.

Sources say that Khan has been openly expressing his fondness for Tamannaah; it is also being said that the two have grown close and have started spending more time together.
“Their equation looks like it is more than just a director-actress fling. The two have suddenly found things in common and this has brought them close. Their proximity has now raised eyebrows of many people on the film sets,” says a source.
The source adds that this development has irked the film’s other actresses: namely, Bipasha Basu and Esha Gupta. Adds the source, “With Sajid and Tamanna growing close, often her scenes are shot before anyone else’s. This means that often Bipasha Basu and Esha Gupta are made to wait for their scnes. Moreover, Tamannaah approaches Sajid directly for every other thing.”
When contacted, Sajid Khan chose to laugh it off. He replied, “This is utter rubbish. I only take shots according to my shot division and as per my DOP (Director of Photography)’s lighting.”
