"I have become the face of fear. I don't mind being a trend setter. Horror is a genre of entertainment and if it has the producers and the audience, then why not," she said at the launch of the first look of the film held here Monday evening.
Talking about the horror films which she has been a part of, the actress clarified that all of them had been different in their own way.
"Each and everyone of them has had very different roles," the actress said.
Basu added that it was the script and screenplay of the film which attracted her to take it up.
"While I was listening to the narration, I thought the film would be fabulous. The script and screenplay attracted me," she said.
Talking about the genre of horror, Basu feels that it is at its nascent stage at the moment and has a lot of potential.
"I feel that horror is at the nascent stage at the moment. We can do so many different things with horror as a genre," she said.
Directed by Suparn Verma, the film stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui opposite Bipasha Basu.
