Bipasha not worried about an overkill
By Subhash K. Jha, IANS
Mumbai, Jan 5 In 2004, Bipasha Basu has as many as eight releases, four of them in the next two months!
But she isn't worried about an overkill because all her releases feature her in different moods and roles.
"I'm working very hard. I've just two to three years more in the industry. I want to make the best of them."
Right now she's excited about "Ishq Hai Tumse", which is a Hindu-Muslim love story in the mainstream format.
"I wanted to do everything that the heroine is required to do. I'm not really doing it for a change of image. I get to play a normal girl. No trauma or anxiety here.
"I wasn't sure how I'd fit into such a film. But I've to say it was kind of cute. To my relief, I'm convincing doing the conventional. I play a Muslim girl who's a firebrand woman. It may be a typical role for other heroines, but it wasn't for me. So I took it up as a challenge.
She gets thoughtful. "I was convinced about doing the conventional stuff, so I guess I'll be convincing to the audience. I love to dance, but not on the roads with a hundred chorus dancers. Such absurd trends have to go.
"Music will always be a part of Bollywood. But I like to see the songs and music in the background, unless we're making a musical like 'Devdas'."
Bipasha is all praise for her co-star in "Ishq Hai Tumse" and former boyfriend Dino Morea.
"The comfort level between us very high. Being with Dino is like being with a member of my own family. Yes, the profile of our relationship has changed. Everything in life changes.
"But there's an openness in our friendship that can never change. I guess if the co-star is completely new or very senior one does have a certain uneasiness in the beginning."
She says she would've never taken a career in Hindi films if it wasn't for Dino.
"I've never been ambitious. I came into films because Dino urged me to. Before that I'd get offers and I wouldn't respond. He fired me regularly for my indifference."
Between work, of course, she finds time to holiday.
Barely had she touched down in Mumbai after a Christmas holiday in Rome with soul mate John Abraham than she left for Goa with him to bring in the new year.
"After the cold and expensive Rome we wanted to go some place warm and economical."
