It's well-known that Mallika Sherawat and Bipasha Basu were anything but friendly when they bumped into each other at an awards function, recently. We bring to you the reason behind this cold war between the two Bollywood beauties.
Bipasha Basu, who made a fantastic start with 'Jism', hasn't been signed on for its sequel 'Jism 2'. It's Mallika Sherawat who has been offered the role of playing the sultry damsel in the sequel. Bipasha Basu, it is heard, quoted a huge price and the Bhatt camp wasn't too eager to entertain her much. This is where and how the rift between these two ladies came about.
However, a source close to Bipasha says, "Bipasha will never mix her personal life with her professional one. She wouldn't be bitter to somebody just because they have bagged a role in a movie. In fact, Bipasha has been cordial with Mallika Sherawat whenever she has met her."
Another birdie tells us, "They both have their beginnings with the Bhatt camp. There's bound to be a sense of competition. Also, there were fierce rumours about Mallika Sherawat and John Abraham having an affair while on a world tour. Bipasha is bound to be wary and not too fond of Mallika, it's only natural. Also, Mallika may not like Bipasha for exactly the same reasons."
