Bipasha Basu: I am fine with 'horror queen' tag
After doing back-to-back supernatural films, Bipasha Basu says she has no qualms about people calling her the 'horror queen' of Bollywood
After doing back-to-back supernatural films, Bipasha Basu says she has no qualms about people calling her the 'horror queen' of Bollywood.
Bipasha, 35, who was last seen in 'Creature 3D', said the genre grabs maximum eyeballs.
"I don't know how to react to this. Off late, I have done many horror and supernatural films. I want to do films which excite me and entertain the audience. That's how I look at it.
"There was no plan that I want to be a horror queen. Yes, it's a genre which get many eyeballs and it's very entertaining to watch at the theater. I am fine if you call me horror queen as long you are watching my film and getting entertained," Bipasha told reporters here.
The actress will be next seen in 'Alone', which is an adaptation of a Thai film. The film stars TV actor Karan Singh Grover opposite her.
Bipasha said she does not mind getting typecast in Bollywood as she feels all the leading actors are doing similar roles.
"This film business is all about typecasting. Talk about the biggest actors in they all seem to be doing same kind of films. Everyone is typecast and if people want to see you in a particular way you cannot take them away from that," she said.
In the film's poster, Bipasha could be seen in a bold avatar and the actress said steamy scenes are part of the script.
"It is an interesting role and I get to play two different roles. It's a passionate love story and revolves around a man, woman and ghost. You will see a lot of passion in this film. It's a boldest film I have ever done till now.
And all these boldness are part of the story," she said.
The film is directed by Bhushan Patel, who earlier helmed '1920: Evil Returns' and 'Ragini MMS 2'.
