Bipasha Basu celebrates her 29th birthday today. As per reports, the Bong beauty is on a Goan holiday with beau John Abraham and had to call off her Kenyan safari holiday earlier due to some tension in the African nation.
Year 2008 will be a year to watch out for Bipasha who goes for an image makeover by going completely traditional for Rituparno Ghosh' next film Sab Choritra Kalponik, in which she plays a Bengali NRI. Sab Charitra Kalponik also happens to be Bipasha's maiden Bengali venture.
Next on the cards is Rituparno Ghosh's Draupadi, Pankh and Sir Ben Kingsley historic epic Taj Mahal, which stars Aishwarya Rai as Mumtaaz Mahal.
Looks like the actress, who was voted as the Sexiest Asian by Britain's Eastern Eye magazine, now wants to move beyond her sex-siren image and do some meanigful roles. But the actress denies she is going in for an image change.
"As an actor you have to do different roles and these roles demand you to sport different looks," she said. "I'm not trying to break any stereotype."
Recently, there have also been rumours that Bipasha might get engaged to John Abraham, her boyfriend of five years, some time in January as their parents want them to get married now.
