Shahid has almost stopped talking to her, reportedly thanks to Sania Mirza.

If sources are to be believed, the new woman in Shahid’s life, Sania, asked Shahid to cut off all ties with Vidya. Friends say that Vidya is very hurt at Shahid’s aloofness.

Recently in Delhi, Shahid and Vidya drove to the premiere of their film Kismat Konnection in the same car but hardly exchanged any words.

A source close to Shahid and Vidya says, “They exchanged the customary ‘Hi’, then spoke a little about Kismat Konnection and after that, there was complete silence in the car for over 20 minutes.”

What caused the drift?

Our source reveals, “Recently, Shahid has become very close to Sania. It seems that he doesn’t want to have any rumours of being involved with Vidya anymore.

Both of them were very close earlier. If the friendship had continued, it would have transformed into intense love.”

A few months ago, Shahid and Vidya’s group comprising of Rahila (Aziz Mirza’s daughter), fashion designer Shabina Khan and a few other common friends even tried their best to bring the two of them closer.

The source says, “They used to tease both of them a lot. They even told them that they are best-suited for each other.”

However, Shahid suddenly stopped hanging out with them. “He decided to step back. Apparently, there was something serious happening in his personal life (read Sania Mirza),” the source adds.

Vidya is upset as she had supported Shahid when he had broken-up with his long time girlfriend Kareena Kapoor.
