|Talk about the dichotomy between reel and real. Bipasha Basu who humbly admits to being a scaredy cat has signed a new spooky flick titled Aatma.
For an actress who once admitted to sleeping with lights on, the lead role in a horror movie isn’t exactly a walk in the park, yet Bipasha Basu has given nod to the fourth horror flick of her career. Raaz in 2002 was a milestone at the very start of her acting career, even though the 2004 flick Rakht was a damp squib.
Presently working in Raaz 3 with Emraan Hashmi, Bipasha Basu concedes that even her friends are surprised that she ends up signing horror flicks despite unable to herself watch one without covering her eyes with her hands.
In Aatma, her fourth horror film, Bipasha Basu plays a woman who encounters a spirit. The film, directed by Suparn Verma and produced by Kumar Mangat, will reportedly have a mind-boggling twist in the climax, and that’s the reason why only Bipasha, Suparn Verma and Kumar Mangat have the full script with them; the rest of the crew has been given the script sans the final ten pages.
“That's from the pre-climax onwards, because the major suspense which brings a twist in the tale. When you see the film, you'll be spooked out just as I was when I heard the script,” Bipasha Basu is quoted as saying in a media report.
To lend realism to the film, Aatma is being shot on the 21st floor of an Andheri building.
