Bipasha Basu cheerfully walked the green carpet at IIFA while his boyfriend John Abraham was nursing his injured foot in Mumbai.
The actress says that she did not miss his absence.
“Why should I miss John? I am not missing him,” Bipasha said.
“Why would anyone miss anyone for two days? Even if he was here, I wouldn`t have been able to give him enough time because I had to rehearse for my performance and he is happy taking care of his foot in Mumbai. I guess he is the one missing out on all the fun here,” she added.
While shooting for a cricket match for David Dhawan’s ‘Hook Ya Crook’, John had recently injured his foot and is now bound for a month and this is the reason he could not make it to IIFA.

Sensual Bollywood actress and former Ford supermodel (1996), Bipasha Basu, will co-host an international event at which the New 7 Wonders of the World will be declared in Lisbon, Portugal on July 7, 2007. No one, including Bipasha, is quiet sure why she has been picked up for the rare honor but Bipasha is thrilled that she will be rubbing shoulders with other international celebrity co-hosts such as Hilary Swank and Ben Kingsley. Bipasha has already started preparing for the event that will boast performances by Jennifer Lopez, Dulce Pontes, Chaka Khan and other luminaries, in the presence of Astronaut Neil Armstrong and many world celebrities including Frederico Mayor, the president of the New 7 Wonders panel of experts and former Director General of UNESCO. The event will boast of one of the largest stage and back stage areas in the world, with more than 600 specialists from 10 countries working as a team to make the show a grand success. Millions of Indians have campaigned for the inclusion of the Taj Mahal in the list of New 7 Wonders of the World. Ace composer A R Rahman created a special song for the campaign encouraging millions around the world to cast their vote for the Taj Mahal. Bipasha is the winner of the Ford Supermodel of the World (contest) and now works in mainstream Bollywood films. Her first name means “Deep, dark desire.” Bipasha is continually listed as one of Asia’s sexiest women, along with fellow stars Mallika Sherawat and Aishwarya Rai.Bipasha has steadily climbed the ladder of success ever since she entered Bollywood with Ajnabee in 2001. However, it was the film Jism (2003), with present boyfriend John Abraham, that catapulted her to stardom. She played the seductive Sonia Khanna to the hilt using her supermodel curves, mesmerizing eyes and dusky skin tone to devastating effect. The image of Bipasha, emerging from the ocean in Pondicherry in the film, left an indelible impression on the minds of her fans. With every movie since then Bipasha has reinvented herself as the actress and proved she can do diverse roles and electrify her fans with her sensuality. Her ‘Bidi Jalai Le’ role in Omkara (2006) is a recent example. In 2005, Bipasha had a boundary-pushing role in the successful film No Entry. She later appeared in the 2006 film Phir Hera Pheri, which did well at the box office. Bipasha was the female lead in Corporate, she received much acclaim for her performance.Dhoom 2 is her latest release with Yash Raj Films, which was a huge hit overseas and in India.Bipasha has also appeared in music videos, such as Tu Kab Ye Janegi… for Sonu Nigam’s album, Kismat and in Jay Sean’s Stolen.Responding to her forthcoming assignment in Bombay Times, Bips jokes that she earlier hesitated from hosting shows because of her short sightedness and inability to read the tele prompter. “History beckons me,” she says joyfully, “I have been given the honor of hosting the official declaration ceremony for the New 7 Wonder of the World in Lisbon on July 7. So I’ve got myself contact lenses…I’d be foolish not to correct my eyesight. I can see everything so clearly now!” Bipasha is aware that this is not only a unique honor for her but also for Bollywood and for India and she is not sparing any effort to make the best impression. Bipasha’s wardrobe for the event will comprise an Indian outfit – probably a saree – designed by Rocky S and a Western outfit designed by Armani. “To be part of this event is to be part of history,” Bipasha says, “And I wouldn’t miss it for anything in the world.”
The break up of lovebirds John Abraham and Bipasha Basu is not official yet. Rumors and news reports in media say that Bipasha is waiting for John to return from Hyderabad, where he is currently shooting on the sets of Nagesh Kukunoor’s Ashayein, to settle matters once and for all. She has apparently given herself and John a time frame within which all matters must be resolved. According to the Mumbai Mirror, she has been confiding in and leaning on the newly free shoulders of Saif Ali Khan who is now keen to date her. According to the sources, Saif and Bipasha became good friends during the shoot of the film Race and she has been seeking his support in her difficult time. The source told Mumbai Mirror, “Saif and Bipasha do make a good pair. Saif is extremely keen on dating Bips. But she is yet to reciprocate her feelings. Saif is still unsure about which way the relationship will head.” Meanwhile, Bips was seen in the IIFA final gala event with Dino Morea who has been saying that they may get back together.
Bips is not too pleased with what Dino Morea has been saying because she wants to take her time to deal with her present situation.
Bipasha Basu tells us that John Abraham isn’t her bestfriend. But why? She replies, “As for John, he can never be my best friend…he’s my boyfriend.” On first thought it’s her laptop and second thoughts Suzanne Roshan is her best friend. She is launching her own website. “It will be maintained entirely by me. And it will have regular, almost daily updates of my life, my ideas, thoughts, observation and basically things that I want to share with my audience,” she reveals. Its interactive element will be very high. People will have chance to ask to her anything they like. Every month she will auction away her personal stuffs and proceeds go directly to the ‘Make A Wish Foundation’, which she have been associated with for 2 years.
