Bipasha Basu joins cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni in the cheeky new commercial from UK trainer company Reebok. Promoting their new line of shoes, Hexride, the pair are clearly having fun as they set each other challenges whilst competing in a fun run. “I am a fitness freak and I love to indulge in various activities like jogging, running, working out to keep myself fit,” says Bipasha.
Meanwhile, Bipasha looks as though she’s about to strike out in new directions in terms of her career with rumours that she has now given the nod to appearing alongside Phantom actor Billy Zane in the paranormal thriller Chimera. The producers also hope to entice Anil Kapoor to join the cast before filming begins in July and it’s said that the script calls on Bips to get hot in one scene with Billy. “Bipasha has a love-making scene that Indian cinema hasn’t seen her doing before,” explains director Tapan Saha.
Bips is also being enticed to take part in her first Kannada film — Adda — opposite new young star Prem. If she does it, she will be following in the footsteps of Mallika Sherawat who did a sizzling item number in Prem’s earlier movie Preethi Eke Bhoomi Melidhe and stole the movie.
