Do we have any Aqua like borderless themes for GNOME 3 ??

When I say Aqua like i don't mean the whole traffic light buttons and stuff like Mac4Linux, rather a theme with 0px borders and larger window shadows.

Yes, the new Ubuntu Ambiance and Radiance themes are just like that.

Epiphany 3.0

Gwibber 3.1.5

All the windows are borderless, but I have not captured the shadows (yet). I will update my answer with better screen-shots a bit later. Also, it is possible that we will get anti-aliased edges and smooth shadows in Compiz.
