Bipasha Basu has done a variety of roles in her decade long Bollywood career, but has never done an action role till now. In the international film, Singularity she has the opportunity to carry out one such role.
In the film Bipasha plays a Maratha Warrior who is in love with British Soldier with a backdrop of Anglo-Maratha war in 18th-century colonial India, the film also stars Hollywood heartthrob Josh Hartnett, and is being directed by Oscar Nominated filmmaker Roland Joffe.
On landing the role Basu had this to say, “Any actor would give an arm to work with Joffe and for me it happened so easily. I kind of bumped into him and he just loved my voice and cast me in the lead role, I was in Los Angeles and I just happened to say hello to him because a friend of mine knew him and I was there for a meeting. So for me this role just fell into my lap.”
Bipasha is known for her athletic, figure so an action role seems the ideal choice for the actress, apart from Singularity, she will be seen enacting a action role in Players too, both
of which along with Dum Maaro Dum will be out this year.
2011 seems an ‘action’ packed year for Bips!
