Seems John Abraham is not over Bipasha Basu! When John went on a talk show with Simi Garewal, he reminisced about his days with Bipasha Basu and how much he missed her but what went on air was an edited version of what he had said.
Incidentally, John had shot for the episode earlier this year and wanted to make some changes in the Bipasha section of the show. The first time he shot for the show, he spoke about the later half of the relationship and why thing shad gone sour between the two.
Later, John wanted to re-shoot the sequence and let Bipasha know that he deeply cared for her and missed her deeply.
However, even the new version of the sequence was edited and major chunks left out. A close source to John told Mid-Day, "John said a lot of things about how much Bipasha meant to his life. He spoke about the times Bipasha stood by him and held his hand when he was a nobody in the film industry. All of this was missing when the chat show was finally aired on television. John was sad that these portions were left out in the final edit of the show since he thought Simi's show would be the best platform to let Bipasha and the world know how much and how deeply he still cared for her."
Simi confirmed the news and told the tabloid, "John wanted the entire segment on Bipasha to be re-recorded. My first response was to refuse. To re-shoot a segment and then synchronise it with the rest of the footage required Herculian amounts of my editing skills. If it was another star I'd have said no. But John is a very dear and trusted friend. And besides he wanted to say something important. So I agreed."
She confirmed that John was filled with nostalgia and admiration for Bips. "What I found truly touching was the amount of respect he still had for the relationship. You see, the very fact that he wanted to say what he had to say about Bipasha all over again, proves how important those words on her were to him."
Explaining why a major chunk was left out, Simi told Mid-Day, "I could incorporate only 12 minutes of what he had to say. So, large portions where he spoke about how much he valued her and how she supported him when she was a star he just a struggler, got left out. Do I regret it? I don't know. One has to be ruthless while editing interviews."
Sources have confirmed that he is missing Bipasha a great deal and speculations are rife that he wants her back in his life.
"John never thought that Bipasha would leave him simply because he refused to get married. He had said 'no' to marriage a number of times earlier as well. But this time around, Bipasha gave him an ultimatum. John was stunned. Since their break up, John has been making a frantic attempt to portray himself as a Casanova, but the truth is John isn't seeing anyone right now. He is waiting for Bipasha to come back to him."
