Popular Bollywood actress Bipasha Basu, who will be seen in horror movie Aatma, Monday said she's more afraid of the supernatural than getting into an image trap.

 "Stereotypes don't scare me much, but yes, supernatural would scare the hell out of me," said Bipasha, who is in the city to promote Aatma.

Stating that she has been adventurous about choosing roles, Bipasha said her bold avatar in 2003 movie Jism was a trendsetter.

 "There was a point of time in 2003, when none of the leading ladies would ever want to do an adult film. That's when I did Jism, and then there was a trend of bold, negative roles for women... So I have never been afraid of any kind of typecasting," she said.

 The 33-year-old actress, who has starred in a few horror movies, wants to more such films.

"In 13 years of my career, I have acted in four horror movies and I wish to do more", she said.

With Bipasha, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Doyel Dhawan in the lead, the Suparn Verma directed Aatma is set for a March 22 release.
