Bipasha Basu does not mind being known for her sexy looks and seductive husky voice but the actor says she is done being just eye candy and wants to do meatier roles.The 33-year-old said that from now on, she wants to star in films which will earn her respect as an actor. She says, “I know I look good. The regular adjectives that come my way — sexy, hot, dusky, Bong bombshell... I love them. It is going to stay with me. But I am done looking pretty. Now, I want meaty roles. I want to do entertaining films, where a woman gets the respect of being an actor.”

“All my colleagues are trying to move away from that. After all how long can you be eye candy? I love my reputation and know that I am considered to be eye candy. But then what? I want to move a little bit deeper,” Bipasha adds.

The actor has starred in commercial films like No Entry, Phir Hera Pheri, Dhoom:2 and Race as well as off-beat films like Corporate, Omkara, Shob Charitro Kalponik.
