Bollywood actor John Abraham seems to be least inclined to work with former girlfriend Bipasha Basu.

John Abraham has been associated with a Mumbai Marathon event for a few years. Reports suggest that Bipasha Basu is likely to attend the event this year. John Abraham, however, seems least interested in even sharing a podium with his ex.

An English daily reports that John Abraham reacted sharply when asked if he was open to working with Bipasha Basu, considering they would share the podium soon for the marathon event. John Abraham said, "I haven't thought about working with her and it's not even on my mind."

John Abraham and Bipasha Basu officially split early last year.


Never cheated on Bipasha Basu: John Abraham
For a long time, John Abraham has been in the news for several things — his production house, the success of Vicky Donor, cheating allegations by ex-girlfriend Bipasha Basu and his current relationship with Priya Runchal. I know that break-ups stir up a lot of emotions and I can empathise with that. I come from a family where credibility and honesty have always mattered. Cheating and dishonesty, in any form, is not in my DNA.
Your reaction on the allegations in your earlier relationship…
I know that break-ups stir up a lot of emotions and I can empathise with that. I come from a family where credibility and honesty have always mattered. Cheating and dishonesty, in any form, is not in my DNA. It is unfortunate if my silence is mistaken as acceptance for things said about me. I have always maintained a dignified silence because that is how I am raised. I have a clear conscience. FULL STORY

John AbrahamJohn opens up about split with Bips
Though John Abraham was reluctant to talk about his break-up in public, he has finally revealed why he broke up with Bips. While Bipasha Basu didn't hesitate to talk about her relationship post break-up, John was reluctant to talk about it. The actor recently revealed in a show that his eight-year long relationship with Bipasha hit the rocks because both of them were 'headstrong people'.
John reportedly said, "After being in a relationship for eight years you want to try out everything to make it work. And when it still isn't working out, it's still not easy to break up instantly as you have some really fond memories with the person. Bipasha was a very strong person and that's what I loved about her. As a girlfriend she was a caring and nice person. She was very homely unlike the image created by people." READ ON

Why John-Bipasha broke up?
After John appeared solo on Koffee with Karan making his singledom quite evident, Bipasha went on record saying she's single for the first time in 17 years. From Bipasha's insecurities to John's refusal for marriage, reasons for the couple's split are many.
Bipasha had reportedly given John the authority to come out in open about their break-up if he wanted to. "It was very obvious when John walked in solo on the sets of Koffee with Karan that they were done. But he decided to keep shut, only opening up to few of his close friends." FULL COVERAGE

Bipasha BasuBipasha Basu and John Abraham may claim to have moved on after their split last year, but the tension between the two seems far from over. After Bipasha commented that 40-year-old John is “old” and should now get married, he says that he has no time to dwell on her remarks. “I have been very busy with my work… honestly, I absolutely have no idea about what she has said about me. So, I would rather not dwell on it at all. It’s been four and a half years since I stopped getting a newspaper at home, so I don’t read what people say about me in interviews.” FULL STORY
