After being tagged as the horror queen of Bollywood, Bipasha Basu plans to take a break from the genre and star in a family drama post the release of her upcoming supernatural thriller Alone.
Bipasha, 36 said she is happy to move out of the genre. "I am finally taking a break from horror films. My next is a family drama. I am really happy that I will not have to answer media that why I always do supernatural movies. The film is very emotional. I am excited about it. As of now, I can't divulge much details about it."
The Raaz star revealed that she was initially hesitant to take up the Bhushan Kumar-directed film as she is tired of answering questions about her preference for the genre. "I initially didn't want to do 'Alone' as the media is always after me for doing horror movies. I was exhausted of answering same questions. But, once I read the script, I just couldn't say no to it. The love story in the film is the reason I said yes to it. I am happy the way Alone has come out. It is one of the finest and slickest horror films ever shot in India. It will help get the genre the credibility it deserves. It is a very scary film. No one should go alone to watch it," she said.
Alone, a remake of a Thai film, is about a pair of conjoined twins (both played by Bipasha), of which one survives. The one who dies later returns to haunt her sister as a ghost.
