Bipasha Basu Has Great Taste

11 Jul

Quick, where did you put your effigy making materials?

The Indian media is in a tizzy all over again – this time over a kiss between Bipasha Basu and soccer sensation Ronaldo Cristiano.  There’s no word yet if any religious/moral/cultural sensibilities have been hurt so far but let’s give them time. Maybe the pain is muted because the un-Indian kissing didn’t actually take place on Indian soil.

The Times of India delved deep into its fangirl self to report that Cristiano ‘scored’ with Basu who was ‘awestruck’ by him.  With a heading like that, I was naturally agog to read what else the normally dignified Basu had apparently spilled. Obviously, the story that followed was a disappointment.

It seems Basu was in Lisbon for the Seven Wonders gig to introduce the Taj Mahal and, in between hobnobbing with the likes of Hillary Swank and getting career advice from Ben Kingsley, met Cristiano… who’s a Bollywood fan.

“Ronaldo said he loved Bollywood films. But I laughed, thinking he was just being sweet. However, he surprised me by taking out his cellphone and playing the song Tujhse Naraaz Nahi Zindagi from Masoom. He loves this song,” laughs Bips. “He then introduced me to his mother, who is a big Bollywood fan, and she swore that Ronaldo was a Bollywood deewana!”

Personally speaking, that sounds like a much better story to me than two people going out to a nightclub in a beautiful city and getting caught in a “liplock” that could have occurred in a multitude of circumstances. Seriously, who cares?

Maybe Gemma Atkinson and John Abraham – and Cristiano if he minds being called a “22 year old boy” – but not me.

    Here is one interesting link for you:
    This is from the NOTW Scroll down and you will find the Cristiano Ronaldo article. So probably he’s not really happy about his life with Gemma. (Although I don’t believe a word of the Bips-Ronaldo link) And I don’t even believe NOTW for that matter. Oh well.

    For what it’s worth I find Gemma Atkinson way hotter than Bipasha.

    It does not matter whether the kiss happened on Indian soil or not….just wait for a day and am pretty sure those self proclaimed keepers of indian morality will come out burning effigies!!!…..and then an enquiry commission would be set up to probe why Bipasha was sent to Lisbon!!!….:)

    Thank God there are people who dont care…

    Whether they kissed or made out is not our problem… And even if they did do all the things in the book that the moral brigade so detest, it still is NOT a problem…

    Actually its the mind-numbingly poor choice of words that reporters use. For example: instead of “said” its “blushed”. For one, you can’t blush words – but given that the reporter was trying to bring a supreme “edge” to the writing, it still puts all the quotes in a different context.

    I think Bips is the Bollystar most unlikely to be a moron – she has an unruffled grace that I really like and if she was boggled by Ronaldo it just means that she is a soccer fan (which most Bongs are god bless them).

    Hmmm.. six comments, all from the male of the species. Coincidink? :mrgreen:

    Amit – glad you liked it 😀

    Pike – well, I share your feeling re: NOTW but the Gemma rumors seem to be all over the place. God, how can people just a couple of years younger make me feel like a senior citizen?

    Gaurav – lmao! I see you know the drill!

    Ankur – coz it’s always fun and we can always be thankful that we’re not them. 🙂

    Jason – couldn’t agree more!

    Aspi – yup, and I think the TOI is a little more inclined that way than other folk coz i think they share entertainment reporters with sister publications like filmfare and that kind of reporting has its own style which sounds bizarre when placed in a normal newspaper. Agree with you on Bips being least likely to turn out a moron. I don’t care for a number of her film choices but she’s always impressed me outside of them.

    Coincidink? No! I know of a girl who broke up with her forever love because he thought Bips was hot. Who knows why women don’t want to touch Bips. But we can all have fun thinking about them and stereotyping gender harmlessly enough.

    Indeed,excellent pic!

    Coralina – lol, is that right? 😀 well he’s still pretty yummy.

    I expected Bipasha to become like Shilpa…. but everything calmed down in a flash !! 🙂

    Malteser – there’s something about British pin ups: they just give off the skank vibe en masse more than any other group I know. Or maybe their skanks just get better publicity. At least Gemma’s not Jodie Marsh or something.

    Gomathy – i know! I’m shocked! Bips needs to change her publicist! 😀
