John Abraham and Bipasha Basu will reportedly appear in a number of scenes together in new movie Race 2.
The former couple are said to have avoided each other since the breakdown of their relationship earlier this year, Mumbai Mirror claims.
“The two have been cast in Abbas-Mustan’s Race 2, have been asked to do two scenes together, and both of them have agreed.”
The first installment in the Race series featured Basu alongside Saif Ali Khan, Katrina Kaif, Anil Kapoor and Akshaye Khanna.
“I have nothing to say about it. I share a very good rapport with the filmmakers and so, I would do whatever they want me to do for the film. I have nothing more to say about it,” explained Basu.
John Abraham has been upset at the rumours saying he is ‘Playboy’!
“You think I am linked-up? I don’t think so. I don’t even like to have such an image. I am concerned about the person in me as I am a stable guy” John told Mumbai Mirror.
“Honestly, I’ve been very conservative and I like long and stable relationships. I like the idea of marriage. So link-ups don’t really help my case.
“I think women find stable men much more attractive and I hope that’s the reason why women find me attractive.”
However, he added that speculation about his personal life no longer bothers him.
“Sometimes it’s done for publicity or publicity towards the film but I don’t react to it anymore. It does affect me but I just decide to be responsible when I speak and make sure that my words are not misconstrued,” he reasoned.
“When I read something that I haven’t even said, I take it with a pinch of salt.”

The pair separated after a ten year relationship.
Speaking to The Times of India, Bips said: “I am getting lots of attention, and I must say I’m loving it all the way. Most of my co-stars are men, and yes, I’m getting a lot of attention from them.”
The actress explained that the industry has seen her in a different light.
“Yes, people are seeing me in a different way. It’s different when you are single in this industry. As an actress, it makes a difference too. Your synergy levels with your co-stars are completely different. If people know that you’re in a relationship, that too with a man from the same industry, they keep a safe distance.”
Speaking about the end of her relationship with Abraham, the actress said: “It was definitely not amicable. No break-up is ever amicable. Otherwise, no one would break up.”

Abraham added: “I am happy that now I have time for myself and my ailing parents. They are not keeping well and I am devoting all my time to them.”
The pair were together for 10 years and split earlier this year!
Akshay Kumar and John Abraham recently shot a risky stunt for the title track of their forthcoming film, Desi Boyz, directed by Rohit Dhawan.
Rohit Dhawan wanted this particular shot in the title song of the film in which Akshay and John climb down from a moving chopper. However, he was worried for his actors because of the risk involved. Akshay heard about this and immediately wanted to do the shot as he loves action. John too loves action and wanted to give it a try.
The helicopter scene required them to do the stunt without a harness, as both of them had to wear whites in the scene and a harness would have been visible in the close-up shots. Despite it being a very risky shot where the actors had to step out of the chopper mid –air with no strapping, both the actors were quite convinced about the shot and insisted on going ahead with it.
