Mumbai Mirror exposes the mix-up between Shahid and her ‘ex’ Vidya

A message from an unknown number triggered a tragedy of errors between Shahid and former ‘friend’ Vidya

By Vickey Lalwani (MUMBAI MIRROR; January 08, 2010)

// // // The last time they were seen together was during Kismat Konnection. Shahid Kapoor and Vidya Balan were reportedly seeing each other during that phase, but some crossed connections and several misunderstandings later, they weren’t even on talking terms.

Much water has flowed under the bridge since. But when Vishal Bhardwaj happened to see some promos of Kaminey some days ago, he decided to send a congratulatory message to Shahid. The text he sent to Shahid read: ‘You’re looking damn good in Kaminey. I just saw you again. VB.”

Vishal, who messaged from his new number that Shahid didn’t have, hadn’t the slightest inkling he’d reopen a painful old wound. Shahid was stunned when he read the message because VB was the nickname he had given to Vidya Balan in happier days.

So convinced was he that it could only be Vidya, that instead of calling the number the message came from, he dialed her mobile number that was still saved on his phone.

Now it was Vidya’s turn to be stunned when she saw Shahid’s number flashing.

They hadn’t spoken in months and Shahid had made every possible effort to make sure their paths didn’t cross after they decided to go their separate ways.

She took the call, not knowing how to react to the situation. Shahid apparently demanded to know why she was messaging him if she had liked the film and didn’t bother to call. Vidya, who had found her voice by now, told him that she certainly hadn’t sent him any message.

A perplexed Shahid didn’t know what to say. If he’s still wondering how that mix-up happened, we hope this will clear the mystery.


A total rumour for sure! Why would Vishal Bharadwaj congratulate Shahid for Kaminey few days back when the film has released months ago? The VB angle was nicely thought of but we can see  that it’s nothing but another gossip story!
