Despite stating that they two are just friends and not in love, both hero Daggubati Rana and heroine Bipasa Basu appearing to be proving their own assertions wrong quite often. Several eyebrows were raised when Rana flew into Mumbai just to accompany Bipasa to a film function. Such is the bond and there are whispers stating that this bond is some thing more than friendship. Bipasa has been living single after she broke up from
Shahid Kapoor. But ever since she got separated, Rana has been keeping her busy, taking her out. Recently it is reported that she insisted on Rana coming down to Mumbai from his native Hyderabad to take her to the Times of India anniversary party on Saturday night. Sources said that Bipasa did not want to go to the party alone as she knew that her former flames Shahid Kapoor and John Abraham would be there. She wanted to proudly present her new found friend ‘Rana’ at the function.
Rana is the grand-son of noted film producer D Rama Naidu who is called Movie Mughal by the Indian film industry. He holds the Guinness World Record for being the producer who has produced more than 100 films in all Indian languages. He also owns a modern film studio in Hyderabad. Rana’s father Suresh Babu is also a film producer.
