Actor handpicks Bipasha Basu as the brand ambassador of his celebrity cricket team
Move over Kangna, Sonakshi and even Zarine! Bipasha Basu is Salman Khan's new girl in town. The actor has roped in Bips as the brand
ambassador for brother Sohail Khan's Mumbai team for a celebrity cricket tournament.
The announcement is significant since Bipasha and Salman had been known to share cold vibes until last year. Our source says, `It is a
known fact that Salman and John Abraham were not exactly on the best of terms.
No one knows what irked Salman but rumours suggest that they had issues during a world tour that they did many years back. Since
Bipasha was dating John around that time, she was automatically blacklisted from the Salman Khan camp.`
However during an overseas awards ceremony last year, Bips was seen partying with Salman and his group, indicating that after John's break
up, Salman and the actress were friends again. `The olive branch extended by Bipasha has not gone unnoticed by Salman, ` adds the
Sallu is known to give 'special recommendations' for his close friends and allies in the industry. The source points out, `It is all the more
surprising as Bipasha has picked ahead of Salman's favourite women Kangna Ranaut, Sonakshi Sinha and Zarine Khan.`
Meanwhile, we hear that Bips will also feature on Salman's reality show Bigg Boss. The actress will launch her fitness DVD on the show and
will also be shown engaging in a tete-a-tete with Sallu. Bipasha will also enter the Bigg Boss house and share fitness tips with the
housemates. She will also conduct a fitness based task and the winner will receive a special gift from the actress.
