The dusky beauty Bipasha Basu is the talk of the town at this point in time thanks to the stupendous success of her latest film ‘Raaz 3’, which was directed by Vikram Bhatt. The actress was having a low time in the industry but she has bounced back stronger than ever and she is happy because she has done it all herself.
The 33-year-old fitness enthusiast has claimed that her box office popularity does not depend on working with megastars like Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan or Aamir Khan.
She told Mid Day: “I never belonged to any camp nor worked with any Khan in the 12 years of my acting career. So it is a big achievement that a film that was completely resting on my shoulders has managed to rake in Rs 40 crore in its first week. ”
Bipasha showed annoyance at how critics focus on her appearance rather than acting skills. The actress insisted that one can always look glamorous if she wants.
“I think you can always look glamorous. However, I am tired of being given tags that I am sexy or that people find me hot. I wanted to showcase my acting skills and I think I have fairly managed to do it,” she said.
After watching ‘Raaz 3’, many out there are curious whether if Bipasha will also be seen in ‘Raaz 4’.
When Bips was asked about it, she said she doesn’t know anything about the fourth instalment of the movie as of yet but she certainly wants to be the first scream queen of the Bollywood industry.
She told Hindustan Times: “I’d love to be India’s first scream queen! Yes. I want to get into the space of Nicole Kidman and Sarah Michelle Gellar in Bollywood.
Basu added: “I don’t know about Raaz 4, but Vishesh Films, [director] Vikram Bhatt and I are working towards building brand Bipasha. The Bhatts are the best people to take my acting career forward.”
