My man should be as successful as I am: Bipasha Basu

A heartbreak and a dead end to a nine-year-relationship later, Bipasha Basu says that she now knows the kind of man she wants.

“I never had a prototype in mind earlier, but now I do. He should be intelligent, should be able to make me laugh and should be as successful as I am. But I am not looking. I am sure if I look, there are good men in life,” says the actor, riding high on the massive opening of her recent release Raaz 3.

She has talked about her heartbreak following a split with John Abraham in recent interviews, calling herself ‘an abandoned woman’. “I went into a shell after the relationship that I worked so hard on, got over, overnight. I’d stood by my man for 9 years and felt abandoned when it ended. It was painful, I just went into a phase of isolation” she says. She’s also not taken too kindly to filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt’s recent remark that ‘she is not as safe’ as she was ten years ago, alluding to the fact that she’s grown old.

“Ten years ago, I was a debutant and I wasn’t safe at all. There’s nothing called ‘safe’ today. Salman Khan who has a Rs 200 crore film, was low three years back and was doing no films,” she says, adding that the idea of loss of fame has crossed her mind.

“I think that once all this gets over and the fame goes away, what am I gonna feel. I don’t have an answer, but I’d be sad.”
