The dusky beauty of the industry is on her high these days. She has been much acclaimed for the projects she had been associated with recently. In a couple of days she is reportedly flying to Goa and is going to spend a lot of time there in the state. Before the winter sets in, she has to shoot for a fitness video on the emerald beaches of Goa.
Post video she has a shoot for the remix of the much famous song of yester years, Dum maro Dum for the film in the same name of Rohan Sippy.
There are two obligations that Bips has to complete in the exotic state of Goa. Once she is done with the fitness video shoot we can see the sultry diva rejoicing to the tunes of the evergreen song of the bygone days.
Initially there were some issues related to the copyright of the song. This beautiful track was composed by the veteran R.D. Burman, fondly called Pancham Da. The original copyrights of the song were with Dev Anand who was the maker of Hare Rama Hare Krishna in which the song appeared. But now as the issues have been sorted out, the contemporary music director Pritam has taken the responsibility of this classic song’s new version composition.
Even Bips has confirmed the news implicitly. She says, “I can’t talk about it right now. But when it happens, it will happen. Give it another two weeks.”
Seems like the Bengal babe is intended to take on serious roles now. We saw her in Lamha in a poignant role. The film was on the most touching and burning issue of India – Kashmir. Now she has taken up Dum Maro Dum of Rohan Sippy that deals with the issue of drugs. Her next release Aakrosh is also an issue based film. The film is about one of the most grave issues these days honor killings.
Not only she is interested to be a part of issue based films but she has message for her co stars and colleagues also, “Don’t charge any money for working in such films. It’s the only way to make issue-based films commercially viable,” she says.
The bombshell actress is not sure how the audience would react to the films she is associated with. She says, “The social issue, honor killings, is treated like a thriller. Even Lamhaa was treated like a thriller. But how many people went to see it?”
Well Bipasha we don’t know about the fate of the film but surely you are on the right track. In the Hindi film industry where the heroines have few scenes and lines and nothing so concrete to do, you are fortunate enough to bag roles that have some substance in it. We wish all of your films do wonders at box office.
