KEEPING MUM: Mahesh Bhupati and Lara Dutta

MEENA IYER Times News Network (BOMBAY TIMES; November 16, 2009)

For a few months now, rumours have been flying fast and furiously that tennis ace Mahesh Bhupati is reportedly ‘good friends’ with Bollywood beauty and ex-Miss Universe Lara Dutta. But when she was promoting her film Blue, Lara categorically said that she was single. However, B-town continues to buzz about how Mahesh and Lara are more than just good friends. At a hairdressing salon in Bandra, whose owner is a friend of Lara’s, there was actually buzz recently that the two are going to get hitched. Which really, from BT’s point of view, is not a bad idea at all. But Lara and Mahesh continue to deny their personal equation on any level. Meanwhile, Shvetha Jaishankar-Bhupati, former Femina Miss India International 98 and a runner-up at the Miss International pageant in Tokyo, had issued a statement in October saying, “Mahesh and I have shared a life together and as we part ways, I wish him all best for his future.” Shvetha, an extennis champion, was also partners with Mahesh in running his celebrity management company and is actively involved in the social cause which deals with children’s education projects. She hasn’t reacted to the stories about Mahesh and Lara. Why should she? If they’ve parted ways, and if Lara is in the scheme of things in Mahesh’s life now, also if both Lara and Mahesh are cool about their relationship, we don’t see how it matters who’s doing what!
