VIDYA Balan is no stranger to linkups and is often linked with her co-stars. But such rumours have left her embarrassed on more occasions than one.
Take the case of Shahid Kapur. Tongues started wagging during the shooting of Kismet Konnection but post the film's release, Shahid not only refused to acknowledge their relationship, he even started giving Vidya a wide berth, leaving her red-faced.
And now, the same treatment is being meted out to her by John Abraham. Her chemistry with John during the filming of Salaam-E-Ishq was so good that his girlfriend, Bipasha Basu, forbid John from ever working with Vidya again. And it now turns out that diktat still holds.
A li'l birdie told us that John was again offered a film with Vidya but he backed out at the last minute, apparently because he does want trouble in his paradise.
And what's worse for Vidya, after John, the film's director approached Bobby Deol, but even he refused to sign on the dotted line.
We wonder if that is because Bollywood's wives and girlfriends can't bear their men working with her or because the actors themselves are scared of Vidya stealing their thunder on screen, now that she has established herself with films such as Paa and Ishqiya.
