Been there, done that. A Love affair gone sour. Now what? Broken relations cannot be fixed. And this holds true for celebrities too. A past love affair of a star couple might not have worked out but they want to move like a true blue professional.
They get face to face, deliver dialogues and look into the eyes of their counterparts, not out of their emotional feelings for each other, but because they are bound by their duty.
Now, take Esha Deol and Aftab Shivdasani's case that is now a thing of the past. In fact Esha's first film Koi Mere Dil Se Pooche was with Aftab (five years ago) and that's when they fell in love. And now five years later, they had to face each other on the sets of Ankahee. So what is it like?
"We are very professional and well-behaved on the sets. After I broke off with Aftab, I met him after five long years on the sets of Ankahee. I find him a very mature person now. When we met, we talked about work and nothing else because both of us understand that we are here to just achieve our acting assignments," says Esha.
There have been more such bitter relations. In fact those who failed in love, feel that if they have to work with their ex-lover, they will not refuse to work only because they happened to exchange few romantic moments in the past.On asking Vivek Oberai what would he do if he is offered to work with Aishwarya again, he says, "I will not oppose acting with Aishwarya. It's not my call to decide who will be the cast of the film. But if I am in the lead role in, I have no problem whosoever is coming opposite me because I am a thorough professional."
Similarly, Upen and Amrita may not meet each other for a cup of coffee but if they are cast together, they will do it happily. "In the film industry we have to forget out past and move on because we have to work for the present. If we will not do so, it will be difficult to produce a film because in every film there are stars who may not get well in personal life," says Upen.
