Vikram Bhatt got me into acting: Bipasha Basu
Mumbai: Bipasha Basu, who delivered one of her biggest hits with Vikram Bhatt, gives credit to the director for inspiring her to get into acting.
They teamed up for 2002 ghost movie ‘Raaz’ and now they are working together after a decade in ‘Raaz 3D’.
"‘Raaz’ was a golden jubilee and none of the actors of my age had ever had it. It`s amazing working with Vikram after so many years. It`s very nostalgic because Vikram actually got me interested in acting as I was lost," Bipasha said.
"I didn`t go to college. I dropped out of school and started modelling. I was very young and I was going through that flux where everyone decides what am I going to do. After modelling, I was wondering what to do. I was bored of modelling. That time actually Vikram got me to focus on this profession. So, coming back and working with him after so many years is fabulous," she added.
Bipasha feels the element of horror will be higher in ‘Raaz 3’.
"In `Raaz 3`, we have a very good story, the emotional quotient is very high and the element of horror is very high. Besides, we have it in 3D," the 33-year-old said.
This is Bipasha`s first 3D venture and she said: "Technically the film is very advanced. Shooting from the first day is like a different experience because 3D cameras are different and the way you look at the monitors is different. So, it took me a day to adapt to everything and then I realised how interesting the process is. It`s good to experience to work like that."
If she teamed up with Dino Morea in ‘Raaz’, this time she has Emraan Hashmi as her co-star.
"I have seen his work and he is a tremendous actor. We were pushed into the most difficult roles into the first week in ‘Raaz 3’ and it was only me and Emraan and we were like balls of energy hitting each other. Amazing to see him perform. It was really good."
