Shahid and Priyanka to sizzle 'break ke baad'?

Shahid and Priyanka to sizzle 'break ke baad'?

Joginder Tuteja, Glamsham Editorial
Looks like the adage of 'life coming back full circle' indeed holds true for Shahid Kapoor. He enjoyed a huge rom-com success in the form of JAB WE MET soon after he broke up with Kareena Kapoor. Now that is hoping for another smash success to bring him back in the reckoning in a big way, his pairing with Priyanka Chopra (another ex-girlfriend) could well prove lucky in TERE MERI KAHAANI.

"Isn't it a strange coincidence," quips an insider, "From one break up to another, Shahid is going through an eventful innings. What is all the more surprising is that his chemistry with the women he has been in love pretty much reflects on screen as well. He did JAB WE MET with Kareena when they were together and the results were there to be seen. On the other hand even though they were into a 'kabhi haan kabhi naa' relationship status during the beginning of TERI MERI KAHAANI, together Shahid and Priyanka are glowing on screen. Now this is what chemistry is all about."
Though Shahid and Priyanka never went on record about their togetherness, they have been in news ever since the making of KAMINEY. Sparks flew on screen during that film as well even though it was an action thriller. Their romance is said to have fizzled away over a period of time and for the last few months, Shahid has been enjoying his single status.

"In fact his birthday in Goa was pretty much an announcement of his bachelorhood, what with a bevy of beauties being invited for an extended bash. However all of this happened after he had finished shooting for TERI MERI KAHAANI. Looking at the promos of the film, it is clear that he shared great tuning with Priyanka during making of the film at the least," a film buff adds.

Well, going by some 'thanda' response that his pairing fetched in MAUSAM (Sonam Kapoor), CHANCE PE DANCE (Genelia D'Souza), DIL BOLE HADIPPA (Rani Mukerji) and KISMAT KONNECTION (Vidya Balan), one can well hope that it would be back to hot-n-sizzling all over again for Shahid and Priyanka, albeit 'break ke baad'!

Shahid Kapoor helps Nargis Fakhri

Shahid Kapoor helps Nargis Fakhri

It's easy to make friends in Bollywood. But retaining those friendships is what seems a lot more challenging. Especially if it's between an actor and an actress.

Shahid Kapoor however seems to least care about rumours of him dating newbie Nargis Fakhri. Probably why he did not think twice before tending to the lady who needed some help after a long night of partying. Eyewitnesses confirm that they saw the actress throwing up in Kapoor's car, right outside his house.

Friend indeed

Says a source, "Shahid and Nargis have been hanging out with the same set of friends. They have been spotted partying a few times in the city, but this was probably one of the nights where they went a little overboard and Nargis started to feel a little unwell. Shahid however, the gentleman he is, did everything possible to make her feel comfortable."

Adds the source, "To some extent Shahid has become oblivious to the girls he gets linked up with. He really hit it off with Nargis ever since their stage performance at one of the award functions and he isn't going to stop talking to her just because there have been rumours about them dating."

Interestingly, Nargis has recently been quoted denying her relationship with Shahid. Says the source, "This isn't the first time Shahid has helped a female friend out. He has always been around even when Priyanka needed him. He's a dependable guy, at least when it comes to friends." Well, we wonder if that's what helps him score with the lovely ladies!
