This Friday’s release Players has Bipasha Basu playing a con woman and an automobile expert. How closely could she relate to her role?
Going by the description of her role in Players, Bipasha Basu plays Riya, who, besides being a full-time con artist, is also an automobile expert and knows her way around automobile engines like the back of her dainty hands.
The irony is that in real life, Bipasha Basu can’t drive, can’t even park or reverse a car.
“I’ve never got my way around cars. I’m not good with machines and gizmos. I can hardly reverse a car or park it without scratching the sides,” Bipasha Basu said while talking about her comfort (or lack of it) with automobiles.
So while the director duo Abbas-Mustan showed Bipasha Basu as an automobile expert in Players, they didn’t make her drive any car. Rather, Sonam Kapoor was given the role of a dare-devil driver who can not just park the car at an amazing speed and slickness, but also flip the finger while doing so.
By the way, for those who don’t know, Bipasha Basu can’t also swim in deep pools. Show her a shallow pool and she’s game for a dip. But deep pools are a strict no-no.
