Players different from the original movie: Bipasha


By Hindustan Times

Bipasha Basu, who will next be seen in Players, the official remake of The Italian Job, said the film is different from the 2003 Hollywood movie.

"The directors Abbas-Mastan have shot the film in a very Indian way. As compared to the female lead in The Italian Job,my character has lot more space in Players," the 32-year-old actress said.

"Also while the Hollywood hit captured that time, Players reflects the present age, and the change in look and feel is apparent and important," she added.

The Bong bombshell, who was here to promote the film, said, "I am here in my favorite city at this time of the year and happy to soak in the Christmas-New Year celebrations in Kolkata."

Talking about her role in Hollywood movie Singularity, Bipasha said, "It is a period film. I am happy the way my character shaped up and now wait for it's release in next year. I am proud to be part of such a project by a director like Ronald Joffe."

"My other upcoming release Jodi Breakers has also shaped up really well where I am paired opposite an actor of R Madhavan's caliber," she said.

Asked if she has heard about the marriage plans of any ex-friend, Bipasha said, "Nobody close to me has confirmed to any marriage plan. If there is anything such I will congratulate them." About her future marriage plans, she said, "Why don't you find a handsome match for me?" Bipasha cut short a question referring to her recent separation from John Abraham.

Players, also starring Abhishek Bachchan, Bobby Deol, Neil Nitin Mukesh and Sonam Kapoor, releases on January 6.
