It was recently reported that Bipasha Basu Singh Grover, who was supposed to make an appearance at an event in Pune, refused to do so, leaving the organisers in the lurch. However, her spokesperson says there is more to this story, and that the actor is miffed with these rumours.
A source says, “Bipasha had confirmed her presence at a Dahi Handi event in Pune, and even travelled there to fulfil her commitment. But when she reached the venue, she realised that there were no security personnel, and no barricading was done. The stage didn’t have a backstage entrance.
Bipasha was asked to walk through the crowd, without any proper security. When she saw this, she refused to be part of the event as she was concerned about her safety.”
When contacted, the actor’s spokesperson confirmed the news, and said, “The event was badly organised, and Bipasha didn’t want to jeopardise her safety. Being a thorough professional, she asked her team to return the fee to the organisers that same night.”
