After spending more than a decade
in the industry, Bipasha Basu feels that an actor's life is
Bipasha, 34, who started her career with a negative
character in 2001 hit Ajnabee, says she now wants to do
"It is true that hunger and fierceness to do some good
work is little more than before in my life. Whatever I am
going to do would be an honest reflection of my true self; my
performance won't be corrupt.
"Acting is a brutal profession but I would maintain my
own dignity and pride. An actor's life is never easy. It is
always a Friday that decides how she is going to do in months
to come," Bipasha told PTI.
Bipasha was last seen in Vikram Bhatt's Raaz. Her evil
character in the film was received well and opened doors
for many new projects. But Bipasha says she is not on a
signing spree after the success of the film.
"For the last seven years I have been doing three films
at maximum in a year. It is going to be the same in future as
well. I want to do good work. Also, the kind of balance that I
have struck in my life is for the keeps," she says.
Bipasha feels that she performs better when she steps out
of her comfort zone.
"I have come to realise that whenever I step into unsafe
zones, I perform better. The kind of films that I have done in
the recent past or am doing now are some risky steps.
"These kind of roles can leave a very strong image about
you. However, this is a risk worth taking. Also, I am sure
audience too has matured enough to understand the difference
between reel and real life."
Bipasha will be seen next in Vikram's another 3D film
Creature and Nawazuddin Siddiqui starrer Aatma.
