Actor Bipasha Basu Singh Grover states that if she gets substantial roles then she is ready to work minus remuneration. She also says she never thought she would get badly stereotyped in the horror genre.

Bipasha Basu Singh Grover is craving for good content and won’t mind being part of interesting narratives irrespective of the remuneration. And, for the love of the art, the actor shares that she won’t take up an offer unless it creatively enthuses her.

Bipasha Basu Singh Grover will be seen next in the Aadat that also stars hubby Karan Singh Grover.

“If they give me good content, I won’t think about the remuneration. But those kind of roles have not come to me yet. I want people to come to me with great content and then I’ll say, I don’t care about the money,” she continues, “I think half of them probably avoid me because they think I charge a bomb (laughs). But that’s clearly not the reality.”

The actor, who will be seen next in the thriller, Aadat, that also stars hubby Karan Singh Grover, blames it on the “short-sightedness” of the show business that actors like her are not getting the kind of work they would like to do.

“I’m still offered horror films. Come on, all my life I did not do just that… I understand that horror films are a multi-dollar business worldwide. And I definitely picked up strong stories with great characters in this genre and tried to promote that genre and it did well. But I didn’t know that I was going to be stereotyped into it. Everyone forgot what other films I have done,” says the Bollywood star.

Bipasha thanks her loyal fans, who have been supportive throughout, the reason why she has been able to stay afloat. “But one thing is clear, being just a love interest is something that I don’t fancy anymore. I don’t want to be there in two or three scenes. I’ve done that in my life already, and I don’t want to do it again,” she points out.

Not ready to compromise on substantial work, she has not signed any other film after Aadat. For her, waiting is more satisfying than opting for a mediocre project.

On stereotypes, she says, “For somebody, who has come into the business now when content has become better and if the work he or she is associated with does well then he or she will get repeated. Again, it’s short-sightedness. There is no dearth of talent, it’s just that somebody has to see it. I can do any of these roles. But, well, I don’t go to parties. It’s very important to be a part of the trade now more than ever, to have a social life. Karan and I sleep early and wake up early. We don’t get any kicks by going to parties, neither do we belong to any gang,” she adds.
