No matter what she does and no matter how many critics she has, Bipasha Basu is always confidence personified.
In a recent interview, she claimed she has no problems not being approached for Race 2.
“I heard even Abbas-Mustan are not doing ‘Race 2’. If the original directors are not doing the sequel, who am I? I haven’t been approached for ‘Race 2’. That’s fine. In Bollywood, the heroines are never signed for sequels. It’s a tradition. Just check the sequels. The guys get repeated. The girls don’t. It’s a man’s world,” she explained. Sad, but true!
Currently, she’s shooting for the comedy All The Best with Ajay Devgan and Sanjay Dutt.
“This is the one film I’ll enjoy doing. I had a ball doing ‘No Entry’. Initially I had too many inhibitions about Bollywood. ‘No Entry’ made me drop those inhibitions. I’m sure Rohit Shetty’s ‘All The Best’ will make me more uninhibited. It’s a fun film and I don’t have to always do roles that reflect my personality. Sometimes it’s fun to do a fun film!” she said.
But why don’t we see Bipasha taking on more roles, like so many other actresses?
“I don’t want do any more work than my pace allows me. I don’t want to compete with anybody. I’ve made a niche right from my first film. I’m Bipasha Basu. I don’t think there’s any replacement for that. I enjoy my work.” Cocky…but we like it!
