Despite speculations about the length of her role in Roland Joffe’s Singularity, Bipasha Basu couldn’t care less. Currently, the actor is upbeat about joining her co-actor in the movie, Josh Hartnett, in London next month for the last leg of the film’s shoot.
“Around three weeks of filming is yet to be finished, though my portions will be done in one week. I am going to London after attending IIFA in Singapore, where I’m performing dance acts choreographed by Prabhu Deva,” says Bipasha.
Based on the first Anglo-Maratha war that took place in 1775-82, the film will see Bipasha playing Maratha warrior Tulaja Naik. Josh plays a British officer who falls in love with her. The earlier portions of the film were shot in Orcha district of Madhya Pradesh and Queensland in Australia before it ran into financial trouble.
“Because the financers traded hands, there was a bit of an issue in January, but now everything is back on track. The film will have a big studio release in winter,” says Bipasha.
The actor is also unperturbed by reports on the length of her role in the film. “I don’t have to worry about brickbats on the length of my role. It’s a fabulous, well-etched out character,” she says.
The actor also clarifies she doesn’t have the time or inclination to stay abroad hunting for work. “My agents have told me that if you want people to know that you are interested in Hollywood, you need to be present for big parties to network and do studio rounds. That is tough for me. I can only spare ten days.”
