There were rumours around the corner that dusky beauty and former-famous actress, BipashaBasu was irritated with director Sajid Khan and didn’t appreciate the fact that he gave more importance to newbies Esha Gupta and Tamannaah Bhatia. She even missed the launch of the movie, just to show how miffed she was with everyone’s actions around her. Now finally, she busted the silence and opened up about her journey with the Humshakals and her sour relationship with the director. She expressed her dissatisfaction with the outcome of the movie and said she was not happy with the end result and hence has decided to stay away from the movie or its promotions.
Bipasha is playing a prominent role in this Sajid Khan’s film, has been royally missing from all the promotional events. The Bengali actress, who is one of the three leading ladies in this year’s laugh riot, took to Twitter to express her displeasure.
The star cast of the film had mentioned earlier that BipashaBasu was unwell and would join them later in the promotions, but during the event at Delhi recently, Sajid Khan told the media that Bipasha’s absence from the film’s promotional events were ‘best known to her’.
And two days later the actress finally expressed and took to twitter saying, “This is to put an end to all the discussions around my absence for ‘Humshakals’ promotions. I take full responsibility of getting into a film only on the basis of trust. But after dubbing for my character in the film, as I had professionally committed to do so, I’m extremely disturbed by the end result of the same.”
This tweet doesn’t mention anything about director Sajid Khan and his supposed favouritism. Bipasha didn’t talk about her juniors Tamannaah and Esha Gupta, whose presence made her feel sidelined. It is heard that the actress not only accepted a higher pay than Esha and Tammanah but a meatier role as well. She was said to be promised an exclusive promo along with Saif Ali Khan, which for mysterious reasons, never happened.
She further tweeted, “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. I am confident that the film will be true to its genre and will be a full entertainer because of the people involved. I wish fox star studios who I have had my biggest hit with Raaz 3 and Vashuji who is a fantastic producer all the best. Wish all my co-stars Saif, Riteish, Tamannah, Esha and the technicians best of luck. Sometimes, certain journeys cannot be completed and this is one of them – no one to be blamed, combination of things that made me disrupt my journey.”
Humshakals being an awaited film and probably the only one Bipasha Basu had in her kitty, it is sad that the actress took her hands off this laugh riot. We would want to see more of this beauty, but not at the cost of her respect.
