In her upcoming movie Pankh, Bipasha Basu appears as a famous actress in the dreams of new star Maradona Rebello. She also apparently appears in a sexy item number. In the movie, Maradona plays the role of Jerry, a confused young man who as a child artiste had always been dressed as a little girl. Bipasha helps him to understand himself through his dreams.
Bipasha, who appears to be working increasingly in sophisticated and seductive slightly older women roles, has recently commented on how Ranbir Kapoor — her co-star in Bachna Ae Haseeno — and Imraan Khan are her favourite current actors. “I adore Imran Khan. I think he’s going to be a huge star,” she says. “He and Ranbir are my current favourites. In fact, I told Ranbir how much I like Imran. He didn’t mind at all. Ranbir and I are friends after Bachna Ae Haseeno.”
Bipasha also recently laid to rest any suggestions that there was any animosity between her and Katrina Kaif, her co-star in the second of her two big hits this year, Race. “We were both working for the same film, not at cross-purposes. We were both liked in Race. Though people would like to believe otherwise, there was no negativity or animosity between us. There was no dramatic tension on the sets. We’re both too sensible for that. There was just no scope for one-to-one interaction.”
The A-list actress will also soon be seen with Neil Nitin Mukesh in Freeze, and next on the list should be Rahul Dholakia’s eagerly anticipated movie about the Kashmiri independence cause Lamha, which may also star Sanjay Dutt.
