Bipasha does not mind being called ‘horror queen’
Actress Bipasha Basu, who has acted in a number of horror and supernatural films, says she has a special connect with the genre
Mumbai: Actress Bipasha Basu, who has acted in a number of horror and supernatural films, says she has a special connect with the genre and does not mind being slotted for choosing such projects.
Bipasha has done films like ‘Raaz’, ‘Raaz 3′ and ‘Aatma’ in the horror genre and will next be seen in Vikram Bhatt’s ‘Creature’.
“Everyone keeps asking me why I do horror films. I don’t know what it is but there is some kind of connect. I feel the genre is not so important the story telling is. In a film like ‘Creature’, where I have a fantastic role then why shouldn’t I do it. In real life, I still get scared soon… nothing has changed on that front,” Bipasha told reporters here at the trailer launch of the film.
“You can call me whatever you want ‘horror queen’, ‘fear goddess’ or anything I am happy with it. I have done lot of supernatural films and all kind of films have that element of fear, horror. ‘Creature’ is different from ghost, spirit and supernatural films… it has an element of fear,” Bipasha said.
‘Creature 3D’ is India’s first 3D monster thriller film directed by Vikram Bhatt and stars Bipasha and Pakistani actor Imran Abbas in lead roles.
“It was very difficult film for me to shoot as I had to imagine the ‘Creature’. But Vikram’s guidance helped me a lot. We used to do every shot at least three times due to technical reasons. It was quite an exhausting film for everyone. I have not done a film like this before,” she said.
T-Series’ Bhushan Kumar with Vikram, his mentor Mahesh Bhatt along with Bipasha launched the 3D theatrical trailer of the movie last night.
