“I feel you have to look correct and you can’t look cheesy,” said Bipasha Basu…
Actress Bipasha Basu says that donning a bikini for a role is okay if you are fit and confident that you would look good in it. “Wearing a bikini is not a big deal for me. If you are fit, you are going to look good. If it’s a glamorous film, it will add to your glamour,” said Bipasha in an interview. The actress was seen in the two-piece in ‘Dhoom 2’ and ‘Players’. “It is not a big deal for me anymore because the first time when I wore it, I was petrified. During ‘Dhoom 2’ I was getting into fitness. After that I am very critical about the (bikini) body because I am so much into fitness that I feel you have to look correct and you can’t look cheesy. I have worn it in ‘Players’ also in ‘Humshakals’ they wanted us to wear it… I don’t think much about it,” she said. Bipasha is right now waiting to see how her horror drama ‘Creature 3D’, directed by Vikram Bhatt, fares.
Bipasha Basu Gears Up For Her Debut International Film
A four year long wait for Bipasha Basu would finally be over. Her debut international outing, ‘Singularity’, is now gearing up to hit the screens. Surprisingly, the film has now been renamed ‘The Lovers’ and more importantly, it has been given an all new texture and treatment…
“The film went into production way back in 2011 and was a notable film for Bipasha since she was pairing up with Josh Hartnett of ‘Black Hawk Down’, ‘Pearl Harbour’ and ‘Sin City’ fame. Moreover, it was a true-blue international outing for her as Roland Joffe was on board as a director. However, there were quite a few production hassles, as a result of which the film continued to get pushed. Thankfully, everything is sorted now and the film is all set to release, albeit with a new title ‘The Lovers’ and a tweaked narrative,” informs our source.
This was pretty much notable from the two promos that were online. While the promo of ‘Singularity’ was released way back in 2012 and it was rather extensive, the new promo of ‘The Lovers’ was unveiled recently and is crisp, and much more interesting. “It is obvious that there is a marked change in presentation,” the source adds, “Due to its period setting, ‘Singularity’ focused on a fierce battle fought by Josh on the Indian soil, courtesy invasion by the British East India Company. On the other hand ‘The Lovers’ comes across as an altogether different film as it is focused on the love story between Josh and the Indian warrior played by Bipasha Basu. The USP of the film is the fact that it runs back and forth between two time periods with a love story transcending between the era gone by and the current times.” Fortunately for Bipasha, there is a lot more of her on display in ‘The Lovers’ that also prompted her to post the film’s promo on a social media site recently. While she was happy to announce this as her first international film and that too with Josh, one waits to see when does the active promotion begin for ‘The Lovers’. Till then, one can pretty much say that Bipasha would have some busy days ahead, what with promotion of ‘Creature’ and shooting of ‘Alone’ keeping her occupied.
