Bipasha Basu may not have had a release since Race early this year; however the dusky actress does have a string of interesting films lined up in the next few months. While she is already sizzling on screen with Ranbir Kapoor in the promos of YRF's Bachna Ae Haseeno, she will also be seen in White Feather Art House Films' Pankh later in the year.
However what is most exciting is that Bipasha would be seen making her debut in Bengali films this year with director Rituparno Ghosh's Shob Charitro Kalponik. Bollywood Hungama brings you the various moods and moments of this Bong babe in her first ever Bong film.
Shob Charitro Kalponik is a film that follows the wanderings of a woman's mind. Bipasha shares screen space with noted Bengali actor Prosenjit who plays her husband in the film. Bipasha is seen dressed as a typical Bengali bride in this scene and needless to say looks like a million bucks.
It's a refreshing change to see Bipasha in authentic Bengali sarees, rather than her ultra glamorous look. However, she looks equally sexy and sensuous if not more even in the saree. Bipasha plays Manisha a simple housewife whose ideologies clash with that of her poet husband which leads to frustration and tension in their relationship. What's more, she even gets attracted to her husband's friend in due course of time. A twist in the tale makes her view her husband in different light.
Rituparno Ghosh has worked with some really beautiful actresses of Bollywood, be it Aishwarya Rai (Chokher Bali, Raincoat) Raima Sen (Chokher Bali, Dosar etc.) Soha Ali Khan (Antar Mahal) and even Preity Zinta (The Last Lear). Now that he is directing one of the most beautiful Bong babes ever and that too in a Bengali film it would be interesting to see how he manages to get the best out of Bipasha.
Bipasha is seen in a complete de-glam avatar sans any make-up in this scene from Shob Charitro Kalponik. She is seen holding a book which says 'We help to build your career' Looking at the way her career has grown over the years we don't think she really needs to refer to such books. Wot say Bips!!!
