Bipasha Basu gives credit for the huge popularity of her item song 'Beedi' in 'Omkara' to playback singer Sunidhi Chauhan.

"I'm flattered to see everyone else performing to my 'Beedi' song. I've been watching 'Bigg Boss', and I'm delighted to see the female contestants almost invariably requesting my 'Beedi' number and dancing to it like crazy.

Sunidhi is a goddess. Her singing is so powerful. She added another dimension to my dancing," Bipasha told IANS.
As a rule Bipasha is still petrified of singing and dancing. "'Dhoom 2' may look like a fun film to do. But it was a challenge. Singing and dancing are challenging for me. I do enjoy it more now than I did earlier. But, I'm still nervous about it."

Bipasha is looking forward to her new film. "I'm working opposite Saif Ali Khan in 'Race' for the first time. It has lots of stars in it. And I'm one of them. I've accepted the fact that I'm the queen of multi-starrers.

"From now on I'll only be doing multi-starrers," she joked. "I've made an impact, no matter how big the cast. Whether it's 'Omkara' or 'Dhoom 2', I've been noticed and talked about."

She's very happy with the progress she has made. "I'm getting there, I know that. I may be taking baby steps but every role should add something to my character."
