Shahid Kapoor, a good actor, has been in the news of late, not because of his acting prowess, but his romantic linkages. He has no doubt the chocolate-faced-boy-next-door look.
The entire media went gaga over his romance with Kareena Kapoor. There were also rumours that they had secretly married. After their hugely successful film Jab We Met, they suddenly parted ways.
The reason, we were told, was that Kareena went on to the sets of Kismat Konnection to say sweet nothings to Shahid, but was shocked to see Vidya Balan coming out of Shahid’s vanity van, with a smug look. Then Kareena straightaway went into the arms of Saif Ali Khan.
Later, the rumour mills were agog that something really serious had been happening between Shahid and Vidya, as they stayed in Toronto for 60 days shooting for Kismat Konnection. The film released and vanished without a trace.
Now, on the sets of Paathshala, a surprise guest, the tennis queen Sania Mirza, arrived and she and Shahid had been reported to be closeted for long periods between takes and talking with no end at all. The couple had also been spotted at a few eateries and water-holes in Mumbai.
