Girls Don’t Have Good Roles In Bollywood Movies
She may have been a part of the film industry for 12 years but Bipasha Basu feels that there are hardly any scripts that offer meaty roles to the heroines. Except Vidya Balan, as Bipasha Basu points out.
She doesn’t understand the tendency as to why they never provide an actress a role which can boast of great caliber. However, she kept Vidya Balan as an exception here. “With an exception of Vidya Balan, I don’t know if any actress or any of my contemporaries who can boast of great films they have done. It could be a Rs 100 crore film but I don’t know what content there is for a girl to do,” said Bipasha who is promoting her upcoming horror film Aatma these days.
Speaking on the subject of her upcoming film Aatma opposite Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Bipasha said, “I think each of us are talented but we don’t have projects to showcase our talent. So if a horror film is giving me that platform, why should I not take up the project? We write really bad roles for women.”
Bipasha, who recently was titled as the horror film specialist says she has been getting too many horror film offers lately. “I get an offer of ten horror films per week. May be I should become a horror specialist. I need to do something new soon.”
