Mumbai: Bipasha Basu, who has posed in itsy-bitsy clothes for a bold poster of `Raaz 3`, says she had no reason to hire a body double for the shoot as she is comfortable with her toned body.
"I have always been comfortable in my skin and never been conscious of my body," Bipasha said in a press statement.
According to insiders, producers were reluctant to approach Bipasha for the shoot, given its controversial nature and had considered using a body double, and later morphing the actress`s face onto the model`s body.
However, Bipasha insisted on shooting for it herself.
"When I learnt about the concept (of the poster), I decided to do it. I had no qualms. It`s my movie and I should be shooting for the poster. I understand that it was required to show the film`s theme in the right light, so it was the right decision," she added.
The poster of the horror film features Bipasha in black shorts and a black bikini top. She exudes confidence with her newly toned, washboard stomach.
"Raaz 3" is directed by Vikram Bhatt, presented by Fox Star Studios and produced by Vishesh Films. It also features Emraan Hashmi and Esha Gupta.
The film`s trailer is scheduled to release alongside `Jism 2`.
