Bipasha Basu is known for her ultra-glamorous and sexy image. However one doesn't usually find her indulging in any lip-locks. After rejecting the 'proposal' in number of other recent films of hers, she decided to just let go of her self-imposed rule in RAAZ 3. Reason behind that was not any convincing by the Bhatts but the fact that she feared audience backlash, considering the fact her co-star was Emraan Hashmi.
"There was no way she could have avoided kissing in the film. Emraan's loyal audience expects him to kiss in each of his films. Period. He was anyways going ahead with Esha Gupta. However if he would have missed out getting intimate with Emraan, there would have been an audience backlash and loss would entirely have been Bipasha's," informs our well-placed source connected to the film.
Earlier this year she did make a slight exception for JODI BREAKERS but her kiss with Madhavan was a mere peck. However when it came to RAAZ 3, there was no question whatsoever of any such inhibitions.
When contacted, Bipasha took it rather lightly while confirming her inhibition around on-screen kissing. She said, "I was in fact laughing with Emraan the other day that due to his image, there was no scope of any discussion whatsoever around a kiss being dropped. If I would have done that, I am sure audience would have hit me. Sometimes you have to just play along with audience expectations."
Well, one just hopes that audience expectations are pretty much satiated when this Vikram Bhatt directed film releases all over this Friday with paid previews a night before.
