It was recently rumored that Bipasha Basu had demanded a whooping sum of Rs. 1 crore to do an item song in the Tollywood movie ‘Gabbar Singh’, which is the official remake of Salman Khan’s movie ‘Dabangg’. The song she was approached for was the Telugu version of the very popular song ‘Munni Badnaam Hui’.
“I demand exactly what I deserve,” is what Bipasha Basu said when asked if the rumors were true.
“I am not going to get into the nitty-gritty’s, because figures are very loosely quoted in our industry. Sometimes it is highly exaggerated, and at other times, it is quoted as quite low. Finally, the job that we do, if we are paid the amount we ask for, it is because we deserve it. I'm not answerable to anyone about how much I charge for what and why I do it,” she added while talking to TOI.
The actress also said that she was eagerly looking forward for the year 2012 and had is happy with the way 2011 has treated her.
“No regrets this year. But then, I don't like to look back. But what I remember is that this year has gone by very fast, I have traveled a lot, I have made too many friends, and it’s getting difficult to spend time with them all. I had a lot of fun this year. I have laughed a lot... Yes, 2011 has been amazing for me,” she said.
When asked about her 9 year long relationship with her boyfriend John Abraham coming to an end she said, “The relationship was gone way back before that - it's been more than a year now. There's no point in discussing it. Right now, it's just hard work for me.”
So what’s in store for 2012 other than her birthday on January 7th?
“‘Players’, ‘Raaz 3’, one of the most challenging roles of my life, and in April, I want to shoot my second DVD. So, 2012 is all about work for me,” she concluded.
