With more than 30 films in a career spanning over 14-years, Bipasha Basu has been through her share of highs and lows, but the actress says there was a time in when she became insecure.
Bipasha, 36, who made her debut in a supporting role in 2001 film 'Ajnabee', bagged her first leading role in Vikram Bhatt's 'Raaz' in 2002.

But almost a decade after her breakthrough through role, there came a phase when she felt fearful as an actress.
"I felt fear the year 'Raaz 3' released. That year I was fearful. Because I was changing everything about my life, getting back to work. It was an insecure phase of my life. I am not a born insecure person. So that was the only time I felt a little fear," Bipasha told PTI.
The Vikram Bhatt-directed hit horror movie was released after a string of her dull box office outings with films like 'Aakrosh', 'Dum Maaro Dum' and 'Players'.
The 'No Entry' star said she overcame the phase with time.
"I am not an over ambitious person. I do what I like to do. Life goes on. Once you feel that you're again back to your own groove, you find it, you get your confidence back. Since then it has been good," she said.
Following 'Raaz 3', Bipasha was seen mostly in horror films like 'Creature 3D' and 'Alone' but the actress says she is confident even in other genres.
"I am confident with everything. You put me in the worst film of the year 'Humshakals' also, stand behind and not say a dialogue, I am still confidently standing there. I don't have a lack of confidence in any genre. I give 100 per cent participation in anything I do," she added.
Bipasha will be next seen hosting and starring in her maiden TV serial 'Darr Sabko Lagta Hai' which starts from October 31 on channel &tv (And TV).
