No qualms going bold: Bipasha Basu


By Hindustan Times

Actor says she was comfortable shooting for the steamy poster of her latest flick actor Bipasha Basu’s risqué shot in the poster of her latest flick, Raaz 3, has created a lot of buzz.

The steamy shot has raised several eyebrows also because the 33-year-old actor has shot for the bold campaign minus a body double.

Insiders reveal that despite having a bold subject, the producers had their reservations about approaching Bipasha for the shoot given its controversial nature and had considered using a body double and later morphing Bipasha’s face onto the model’s body. However, Bipasha insisted on shooting for the poster herself and decided to go all out for the poster unapologetically.

Bipasha confirms the same. “When I learnt about the concept, I decided to do it. I had no qualms. It’s my movie and I should be shooting for the poster. I understand that it was required to show the film’s theme in the right light. I have always been comfortable in my skin and never been conscious of my body. It was the right decision,” she says.

The promos of the 3D horror film, directed by Vikram Bhatt and that also features actors Emraan Hashmi and Esha Gupta, was released alongside the theatrical release of Jism 2.
