The new BFFs of Bollywood
Sushmita Sen's ex-flames Randeep Hooda and Mudassar Aziz get friendly
It's not often that two ex-boyfriends of a star become buddies, especially when it's years after they've separated from the woman they loved. But the latest friends in tinsel town are an actor and director who have at different times been in a relationship with Sushmita Sen.
Randeep Hooda and filmmaker Mudassar Aziz were involved with Sen. She moved on and understandably, the two ex-flames never crossed paths. In fact, according to sources, Hooda and Aziz couldn't stand the sight of each other.
Last week, however, at a private screening of Hooda's latest film, Sahib Bibi Aur Gangster, Aziz is said to have been bowled over by his performance. The director instantly went up to Hooda and chatted. The two are now friends, we hear. Aziz, we are told, plans to cast Hooda and Sen in his next film.
When contacted, Aziz said, "Randeep pitches his performance in the film wonderfully. Tigmanshu Dhulia (director) has cast him well."
When asked of his plans to cast Hooda in his next film, Aziz said, "He is an actor. I am a director. We aren't supposed to be enemies, are we?"
