Bipasha BasuI am adaptable because I have a very Indian face: Bipasha Basu

Bipasha Basu says that she has a western persona attached to her image because of her modelling background.

"But I think I am adaptable because I have a very Indian face," Bipasha told reporters in Mumbai on Friday.




The sizzling Jism actress also rued the trend of making actresses in their late 20s feel "old".

"I agree that Bollywood is a male-centric industry. But, I expect the media to be intelligent. If heroes who are over 40 are paired opposite much younger heroines, it is not talked about," Bipasha said.

"But if I am romantically paired against heroes two to three years younger than me, a big issue is made out of it. It is really unfortunate," she said responding to questions on being cast opposite Ranbir Kapoor in Bachna Ae Haseeno and Neil Nitin Mukesh in Freeze .

Asked about co-stars on 'Bachna Ae Haseeno' newcomers Ranbir and Deepika Padukone , Bipasha said they were groomed well before facing the camera.

"Ranbir has even worked as an assistant director. Compared to them, I have learnt everything while on the job," she added.

According to her, she is liked as a personality even off-screen. "In a male-dominated industry, what more can I ask for?" she said.

Regarding milestones in her career, Bipasha said her second film Raaz was special because after it the industry has not seen a golden jubilee till date.

"Present-day film business depends on how well or bad a film does in its opening week," she added.

On being appointed as the brand ambassador of Sugar Free Gold, Bipasha said, "Fitness is about 50 percent diet and 50 percent exercise. Sugar constitutes for the extra calories in our diet, which has no nutritive value except for just empty calories. Hence when it comes to endorsing Sugar Free Gold - a sugar substitute, it comes very naturally to me as I myself use the product."

Under the agreement, Bipasha will feature across all Sugar Free Gold communication, including advertisement on TV, outdoor, print, radio and other media.
