Bips didn't want to be a Pamela!
Vivacious Bipasha Basu's take on her much-talked about skimpy bikini scene in Dhoom 2 and much more! Read on for juicy details. 'I am not scared of Bipasha'india Updated: Dec 08, 2006 19:38 IST
Like everyone else, vivacious Bipasha Basu is also looking forward to the release of her much-talked-about film Dhoom2.
The Bengali beauty plays a cop in the film and says she enjoyed it to the core. “The timing was fantastic for me because I was getting fit so I guess Adi chose me because I fitted into the physique of the character. It was a sheer delight to be the part of this film,” she evinces.
Being an adventurous person, Bipasha always wanted to be a part of an action flick. “I had forced myself to get comfortable with Bollywood naach gaana because initially I could not identify myself with doing that. But then I understood that the essence of Bollywood is naach gaana and yet with time I can always choose to do different kinds of role,” she explains.So how was it shooting in bikini? “I did my bikini shot in Durban and let me tell you, shooting in a bikini is not easy,” comes the quick confession. She further adds, “It is just not about being conscious but about the fitness level you have to reach. And three days of eating oranges, working out thrice a day and going paranoid, ‘am I fat’.
I did not want to look very oomphy I wanted to look athletic, I do not know what the final result is, but for me I wanted to be a Cameron Diaz, I did not want to be a Pamela Anderson.” The dusky actress also gives due credit to the director for making her bikini look very athletic.
“It is difficult working out so many times a day and not eating when everyone is gorging on food,” she recollects with a smile.
