Vidya not romancing with Vivek

Bollywood actress Vidya Balan has refused any romancing link with Vivek Oberoi. Vivek has not done any movie since the disastrous Mission Istanbul last year.

But Vidya, who’s been linked to almost every actor that she has worked with from Sanjay Dutt and John Abraham to Shahid Kapoor, is not having any of this.

Bollywood is half times too many for people to fall in love or get hooked onto each other. But Vidya is not buying.

Vidya is working with Vivek, so Vidya’s anxious to nip the romance rumour in the bud. “I have met Vivek some one-and-a-half times only,” said Vidya.

At the same time, the actress claimed that she’s not in love with him. “It’s just a rumour,” the actress added.
