I almost feel like Amitabh Bachchan: Bipasha BasuAugust 14th, 2008 - 9:48 am ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Aug 14 (IANS) Bollywood actress Bipasha Basu is miffed at being tagged as the seniormost actor in “Bachna Ae Haseeno”, which is releasing Friday, and says she has started feeling someone as old as legendary Amitabh Bachchan. She co-stars with Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone, who are just one film old. Minissha Lamba and Karan Kapoor are also in the movie.
“People have been calling me the seniormost actor in the film. I almost feel like Amitabh Bachchan now. The others in the film are extremely good actors and not at all inexperienced,” Bipasha told IANS.
“They have a lot of experience and have absolute clarity in their mind on what they want to do. They are very spontaneous and we even get together very well in that way,” added Bipasha who was seen in this year’s first big hit “Race”.
Bipasha was here with her co-stars and director Siddharth Anand to promote the film that traces the journey of a young boy from the age of 18 to 30.
In the film, Bipasha plays an aspiring actress who travels to Mumbai from Ranchi to fulfil her dreams but ends up working with Shiamak Davar’s dance troupe.
“The character in the film is just like me. Radhika works and keeps her relationship going simultaneously. The role is very contemporary. She is an effortless dresser. She wears shorts and vests and uses all kinds of funky bags and accessories.”
The dusky beauty says she enjoyed shooting for the film.
“I was completely pampered on the sets and have finally made two great friends in Ranbir and Siddharth. I have not spent enough time with the girls though.”
“Bachna Ae Haseeno” has been extensively shot abroad at locations like Venice, Switzerland, Sydney and 15 towns of Italy.
Bipasha enjoyed her Italy stint the most.
She said: “I got a lot of compliments in Italy for the clothes I was wearing. Italian men only know how to romance. They are impeccably dressed with styled hair and they only want to marry you.”
Her forthcoming movies include Bengali film “Shob Charitro Kalponik” Sanjay Gupta’s “Pankh” and Jeh Surti’s “Freeze”. All are schedule to hit the screens this year.
