The much married tennis star Mahesh Bhupathi is suddenly in the news for his performance off court rather than on. Just weeks after he was all over Raima Sen at a nightclub, buzz is that he is now seeing Lara Dutta. As for the Lara-Dino relationship, nobody really knows why the two broke up. Lara, of course, wasted no time and has moved on to Mahesh Bhupathi. Incidentally, Dino is aware of the new man in Lara’s life and has accepted that his relationship with the actress is over.
A source said, “Lara and Dino, who were dating for a year, called off their relationship almost three months ago. That’s when Lara met Mahesh through a common friend and the two instantly liked each other and started dating. Mahesh’s marriage to Shwetha Jaishankar has been on the rocks for quite sometime now. The tennis star and Lara have been going strong ever since they met. Lara and Mahesh are making sure not to make any public appearances together as their relationship is hush hush right now.”
As expected, Mahesh and Lara denied the news. Mahesh said, “I am a married man and I am not dating anyone.” We sent a text message to Lara, who replied, “Have you guys lost it?” Lara and Dino had started dating after she split with longtime beau Kelly Dorji. Kelly had recently claimed in an interview to a magazine that his former best friend Dino had backstabbed him by lying about his affair with Lara.
