Bipasha Basu is upbeat post the release of her latest film Bachna Ae Haseeno. Her pairing with Ranbir Kapoor made her look comparatively mature, but nothing stopped her from carrying out the role with flamboyance.
In a post release interview, Basu tells Businessofcinema.com about the feedback she has been receiving and talks about her forthcoming projects.
Are you happy with the performance of Bachna Ae Haseeno?
Yes of course, the film really went good. The viewers appreciated the role, chemistry, and acting. It feels good that audiences are watching it repeatedly. Boys like the fun in the first half and girls like the movie because of the love emotions and hurt in relationships.
What kind of feedback have you been getting?
After Corporate, this is the next film where I got the best feedback. I am getting compliments wherever I go whether it is a gym or somewhere outside.
I have around three and half thousand missed calls and so many messages from my fans. Their feedback is not only saying good or bad but also explaining the strengths of my role and the film. For me this is just like winning an award.
What was it about this film that made you decide to do it?
I think the narration, and after reading the script, I knew that I wanted to do this film. For a long time I have not seen very good romantic comedies and I have not been a part of a romantic comedy.
There was freshness to the script and characters of the girls, each girl has original characterization, and all the girls have something that every girl can relate to. This film was providing a real flavour and at the same time, it had all the entertainment values that one will look for when one goes to watch a film, I guess that is the reason I decided to do this film.
What was the toughest part?
The toughest part was the second half where I had to play a role, which is very different from my usual self. I am a softhearted girl and I had to play for a girl who is jilted in a relationship. My relatives said they could not believe I also had such side or that I can do it.
Which are your other movies in the pipeline?
I am doing a regional Bengali film. I am also doing an interesting art film called Pankh. Apart from these, there is a romantic thriller called Freeze. So there is a lot more to see in this and the coming year.
