Bipasha Basu's 'jodi' with Madhavan is indeed looking good in JODI BREAKERS and while the 'unconventional pairing' has been hailed so far on the basis of promos, one also can't ignore the fact that she is one of the very few actresses in the top rung who hasn't been paired with the top three Khans (Aamir, Salman and Shahrukh) so far.

''Except for NOENTRY where Salman Khan played her friend, she has never shared screen space with him. Even with Shahrukh Khan, she only did a blink-and-you-would-miss appearance in RAB NE BANA DI JODI for the song 'Phir Milenge Chalte Chalte'. As for Aamir Khan, the two have never been seen together in a film. Call it a coincidence but somehow there was never a project conceived where the makers could imagine Bipasha along with a Khan,'' says a source.

Still, it is quite apparent that the tag of being 'an outsider' did hurt Bipasha as each of her contemporaries did see some good push in their career as they worked with the Khans. While Kareena Kapoor could well hold the record of doing the maximum 'Khan films', Katrina Kaif is working with each of them as well while Priyanka Chopra has been fortunate in this regard too. On the other hand Bipasha has managed to make a place in the list of top actresses in Bollywood despite no 'Khan film' in her kitty.

''If you look at the way Bipasha has conducted herself in the industry, she has pretty much managed a no compromise stance,' says a friend of the actress, 'While she has seen quite a few ups and downs in her personal life as well as professional career, one thing that she strongly believes in is her inherent self confidence and the correct attitude. She is a survivor. If she has managed that so far with her head high, she would do that in future as well.''
