Bipasha eyes Bengali films!


By Hindustan Times

MUMBAI, Feb. 21 -- Bipasha Basu has started taking great interest in Bengali films and is thinking of getting in touch with a few directors from the industry as well.

The actor says, "I would love to work with Prosenjit (Chatterjee). I have to give him a call. I don't know why people in Mumbai think that actors from Bengal don't have the time to work in their own regional industry. That's just mean."

Bipasha who received rave reviews for her performance in Rituparno Ghosh's Sab Charitro Kalponik (2009) says she is awed by the kind of mature and deep Bengali films that have been made recently.

It's not that she keeps a tab on every critically acclaimed Bengali film, but she is awed by director Srijit Mukherji's work.

"I really loved Srijit's latest film. I recently met him when he was in Mumbai, and we exchanged numbers. I would love to work with him because his films define a new kind of cinema. I see lots of films but I was really blown by his Baishe Srabon (2011) and Hemlock Society (2012)," she says.

Bipasha has even asked the filmmaker to create a role that would suit her best. "Recently, he called me to ask if I could act in a music video for him. I was a little busy so I couldn't do it. But I called him back and asked him to think of something I can do later," says Bipasha.

After featuring in films like Raaz 3 (2012) and the soon-to-release Aatma, Bipasha says she is not worried about getting typecast in horror film roles. She, in fact, believes that this means she has been successful at essaying her roles. "Otherwise, there wouldn't have been any talk about typecasting," she says.
