“I am a kind of person who is completely into workouts. I believe in being healthy and it’s not about just looking good. I always feel that being healthy is the key reason for me. That’s the reason I am so much into fitness”, Says Bipasha.
Bipasha reveals her health and beauty regime. “I drink 10 glasses of water a day. Apply sunscreen with a high SPF every time I step out in the sun. Eat small meals, around six times a day at regular intervals. Involve the proper food items in my diet judiciously which are highly nutritious. Exercising 4 times a week at minimum for an hour a day and minimum 7-8 hours of sleep a day definitely makes one look fit and beautiful.” she signs off.
The Most Bizarre Thing That Happened To Bipasha!Bipasha Basu suffered for three long hours when she a tiny piece of gravel went right inside her ear.
She confirms saying, “We were doing a heavy duty action scene when this gravel went right inside my ear. I had to be taken to Leelavati hospital, where it had to be sucked out.”“It wasn’t on the surface. It went right in and I couldn’t move because there was the danger that it would go in deeper and pierce the eardrums. First I tried to shake it out. Then when that didn’t work I decided to let a doctor do the needful,” she added.
“The producer and director tried everything. We finally headed towards Leelavati. It was John (Abraham) who got an old ENT specialist friend of his to check me out. The sweet doctor was at another hospital but drove down to Leelavati. At 4.30 p m, he finally put me out of my misery,” Bipasha said.
“Who would think such a thing would happen? Normally during an action scene you protect your knees, head etc. But ear? It went straight in with a thud.
“I wasn’t moving, I was so petrified the gravel would go deeper into my ear. My parents were petrified. The minute the doctor said it could be taken out I was okay. It was the most bizarre thing that ever happened to me,” the she said.
Gone are the days of the fair skinned and light eyed Poonam Dhillon played a Kashmiri girl. Now Bengali siren Bipasha Basu is all set to break this existing stereotype.
“When you think of a Kashmiri girl in our movies, what comes to mind is a fair-skinned, light-eyed girl. But I want to disprove that myth. The pre-conceived notions have to be overcome,” Bipasha told IANS.
Infact she has even asked her producers to invite a born-and-bred Kashmiri girl to Mumbai so that she can study her body language, speech patterns and mannerisms, for her role.
“I’ve never done a film like this before. The role requires me to be someone else altogether. I’ve to change my entire personality. And for this I needed help. I wanted to play the character the way girls really are today in Kashmir. Very basic.
“I’ve done a bit role in another authentic film - Prakash Jha’s ‘Apaharan’. For that matter, Madhur Bhandarkar’s ‘Corporate’ was very real and so is Rituparno Ghosh’s ‘Sab Charitra Kalpanik’. But ‘Lamha’ is something else.”
“I think I’m going to be more keen on getting it right than the director. Going to Kashmir and getting to know the local way of life was difficult. All said and done it’s still not entirely safe in Kashmir.
Bipasha Basu On Being Sexy and Sexiest!
Bipasha Basu has been voted to most Sexiest Asian and she is definitely elated. However some journalist had taunted her for taking that tag too seriously and she responded saying,
Yes and I’m proud of it. I read a journalist taunting me about how serious I tried to sound about being chosen the sexiest woman in Asia. I’d just like see how she’d react if she got the same title. I’m sure any man or woman would be flattered being called the sexiest. I don’t see why I’ve to justify myself for being happy about being called sexy. I feel elated about it. You can’t take it away.
And on being asked how does she define ’sexy’.
It’s defined differently from person to person. Those who know me know I’m a very down-to-earth girl with no pretensions to being a diva. For me being sexy is an amalgamation of many factors. Definitely a good physique and a Perfect-10 for health. A good face helps. But confidence, poise and intelligence are musts. Just a body won’t do.
Bipasha: Appreciation for my role in BAH came as a lovely surprise
Bipasha Basu has proved all her critics wrong as she shared sparkling chemistry with new hottie Ranbir Kapoor. However the leggy lass definitely was surprised with her performance, which overshadowed her other co-stars.
She says, “I really did not know what the response to my part would be, but yes the appreciation has come as a lovely surprise. I did the role because the film was a cute romantic and I could relate to my character Radhika.”
“It’s sad that women get tagged as old when they are in their late 20s! People actually made me feel as old as Mr Bachchan. But it’s a good sign that audiences have liked the chemistry between Ranbir and me, which has put an end to all speculations.”
