The rumors of a relationship between Shahid Kapoor and Bipasha Basu have been doing rounds for quite some time now. But apparently, all isn’t well in the paradise as Shahid Kapoor is not ready to take his relationship to a next level with Bipasha Basu.
The reason behind Shahid Kapoor’s hesitancy seems to be that he is still nursing wounds from his last break-up with Priyanka Chopra.
"Bipasha and Shahid really like each other and they wanted to take it a step ahead. But he is still not ready to get into a full-fledged relationship at this point," a source told Mid Day.
"His friendship with Priyanka was very tumultuous. There was a lot of passion, but the many break-ups they went through took a toll on him. He is yet to get into that space where he could completely commit to someone," the source added.
The source also dismissed the fact that the reason behind turbulence in the relationship was the closeness between Bipasha Basu and Rana Daggubatti.
"Apparently, Bipasha confided in a friend recently that Rana was a close friend and Shahid needs some more time from her," said the source.
Shahid Kapoor and Bipasha Basu were introduced by their common fitness trainer. The pair connected immediately.
