Talking about whether his relationship with Bipasha changed after they parted ways, The Empire star said, “My equation with Bipasha Basu from Raaz to Gunaah had not changed. I don’t think it changed ever. Yes, we were dating when we were shooting Raaz. Then we were not dating during Gunaah. But, I think we were both professional actors and we both wanted to be professional on the sets and in the industry.”
He added, “We did not let our personal relationship come in between our work, we let that stay out of the work we did. I think we both handled everything very professionally.”
Further talking about his equation with Bipasha Basu, Dino Morea said, “My equation with her is still…I mean we both respect each other and we both are still friendly, very friendly. In fact, we don’t talk as much but we talk every now and then and there are those cherished memories which were wonderful. So, the equation is great!”
