It’s the season for making friends in Bollywood. And the latest BFFs in town seem to be Sonam Kapoor and Bipasha Basu. But unlike their contemporaries who seem to be friends for the sake of being friends, these two actually share a common interest — fitness.

The actors, it seems, bonded for the first time on the sets of Players. And while the film didn’t do too well, it did a lot for the leading ladies’ friendship. “Ever since Players, both of them have been very fond of each other. Sonam, especially, has always been impressed with Bipasha’s level of fitness. Whenever they get time, they exchange notes on fitness and fashion,” says an industry insider.

Now, the two actors might take their common interest a step further. “The two are now planning to work out together whenever their shooting schedules permit. Sonam looks up to Bipasha, since the latter is a hardcore fitness enthusiast. The two of them get along like a house on fire,” says a source close to Bipasha.

Not surprisingly, the actors have expressed their mutual admiration even in twitterverse. Sonam wrote about Bips: “You are an inspiration! Love your attitude Bips… wish I could channel that positivity! (sic)” To which, Bips responded: “U r adorable! Believe and it happens! (sic)”

Sonam and Bips’s equation, of course, was evident earlier, during the promotion of Players, when Sonam claimed they shared a “talkative” equation. “We can’t keep our mouths shut. We just want to talk about ourselves,” Sonam had said.
