Bipasha Basu had no problem shooting `Humshakals`: Sajid Khan
Mumbai: Director Sajid Khan says Bipasha Basu is not promoting his upcoming film `Humshakals` as it is not about her.
"I think Bipasha has not promoted many films of her like `Players`, `All The Best`. I think the last film she promoted was `Aatma` because the film was about her," Sajid told reporters.
"She was perfectly fine shooting for `Humshakals`. She is part of four out of the five songs and she has done complete justice to her role," he said.
Bipsaha has said she was disturbed after seeing the "end result of the film".
"In these circumstances I didn`t know how to promote a film with all honesty and that`s why I thought it was better to stay away," Bipasha posted on Twitter.
Actor Ajay Devgn, who collaborated with Sajid on `Himmatwala` remake, had in an earlier interview said he was aware that the film would fail while he was shooting for it. Sajid, however, disagrees with it.
"That`s not true, because a day before the release of the film, we were celebrating in his (Ajay`s) house. If an actor doesn`t believe in the film, the actor doesn`t promote the film. Ajay and I promoted `Himmatwala` for 22 days," Sajid said.
The director said that he started writing `Humshakals` while grappling with the box office failure of `Himmatwala`.
"The idea of `Humshakals` was already in my mind when I was making `Himmatwala`. But I started writing `Humshakals` in the week of the failure of `Himmatwala`. I feel I wrote it vehemently because I wanted to make myself laugh," Sajid said
