I am a funny girl with a mad sense of humour: Bipasha Basu

Superstars are remembered only when they die: Bipasha Basu

Bipasha Basu talks about the irony of an actor’s profession, about the constant prying into their personal lives and about her wish to do a situational comedy in this interview. She reveals that she’s a woman with a mad sense of humour. We believe!

After being in the industry for more than a decade, Bipasha Basu says an actor's life is a sad one. She says even superstars fade away after a point and are remembered only when they die.

"An actor's life is very sad. The biggest of superstars in our country fade away after some time and are remembered only when they die. But what to do? It is very vulnerable, very sad, but that is the way it is. Nothing is permanent in their life," Bipasha told IANS on the phone from Mumbai.

A classic example is that of Rajesh Khanna, Bollywood's first superstar. All but forgotten for almost a decade, he emerged briefly in a rather sad TV spot and the next thing we knew was that he was in hospital, came out, went in again and came out for the last time - only to die a few days later. Of course, there was a nationwide outpouring of grief - and this is just the point Bipasha is making.

"Once you achieve success, you just want to work, you don't want to be forgotten. It is an emotion that every actor worldwide, male or female, goes through," said the 33-year-old, who plays an actress whose career is on the downfall in her forthcoming film Raaz 3.

Directed by filmmaker Vikram Bhatt, the movie, a sequel to 2009 film Raaz " The Mystery Continues, also stars Emraan Hashmi and Esha Gupta.

Bipasha Basu says people want to know everything about an actor's life and that is the reason films like The Dirty Picture, "Raaz 3" and Heroine are made.

"Acting is a very enigmatic line. Being a celebrity people always want to know about your personal life - what you are? What you eat? How you live? Where you go? Who are you dating? How you breathe?"

"Raaz 3" is about struggle of an actor's life to attain fame and success. And the actress says that an actor's life makes an interesting proposition for a movie theme.

"It is an interesting profession to make a film on - either the actor's life or an actress'. In today's time everybody wants to be an actor. It is a fascinating profession and people want to know about behind the scenes. And that is the reason there have been so many movies made on the same topic," said Bipasha, who made her acting debut with the 2001 film Ajnabee.

So, are such films actually based on real life incidents?

"These are all fictional and little drawn from reality. Such films are basically different types of storytelling of different directors, which make for very interesting stories," added Bipasha.

An actor's personal life has always made headlines and even the Bengali beauty has not been spared - be it her relationship with "Raaz" co-star Dino Morea, or her romance with actor John Abraham and their break-up.

Though she does not let all that bother her a lot, she says media and people should not forget that actors need some privacy.

"Poeple are always interested to know what you are doing in your personal space. It makes great news for people to discuss over a meal. But they forget we are also humans, who have a personal life, struggles and we too go through good and bad times.

"It is quite harsh at times to expect an actor to be okay with whatever is written about him. Actors and not super humans, they are normal people," said the actress, who has also worked in Tamil, Telugu and Bengali language films.

Known for her performances in films like Corporate and Dhoom 2, Bipasha is game for well-written comedies.

"I am dying to do a comedy. I am a funny girl and blessed with a mad sense of humour. I think I can pull off comedy nicely. I don't like slapstick comedy but, yes, situational comedy works for me," said the actress, who has done comedy films like No Entry and All The Best.

Last seen in Jodi Breakers, Bipasha's future projects include English film Singularity and director Suparn Varma's horror project "Aatma".
