Actress Bipasha Basu is gearing up for the release of her movie ‘Jodi Breakers’. The actress is very excited about the movie and said that her character in the movie was pretty similar to her in real life.
“It's the kind of character I have never done before -- a very contemporary and modern girl who at the same time is quirky, funny and loves to live life. It's a very real space. I can totally identify with my character. It is the first time I could be myself on the big screen,” she said to a tabloid in an interview.
It was Bipasha Basu who had recommended actor Madhavan for the male lead in the movie.
“It was a gut feeling. I am glad I suggested his name though I did not know what my working equation with him would be like. I just knew that he would pull it off really well. He had his own share of doubts,” she said.
Bipasha Basu is so impressed by Madhavan that she had recently said that she was looking for a younger version of Madhavan for herself.
“I am not looking out for anyone. I talk a lot and that's my problem. I want a life partner who has exactly the same qualities as Madhavan. He is good at his job and is a great husband and father. He also encourages his passions like skiing, golfing and he is a very confident man. He has a great sense of humor and so I decided that I also want to find a Madhavan who is a little younger and fitter. In fact, I have told Madhavan to find someone for me,” said Bipasha Basu with a smile.
The actress is currently busy shooting for ‘Raaz 3’. The actress is pairing up with director Vikram Bhatt, in whose movie she had made her debut.
“It feels amazing because it was Vikram Bhatt who got me into acting. I got my first break in ‘Ajnabee’ which was directed by Abbas-Mustan but at that point of time I was like a little child faffing around as I was bored of modeling. ‘Raaz’ actually made me like acting. I have done three films with Vikram and he is a dear friend of mine. We are shooting Raaz 3 in 3D and the kind of work that we are doing is stupendous. The role is extremely challenging for me. It's a very tough role. When we started shooting I requested Mahesh Bhatt and Vikram to start with lighter scenes but they told me that there is nothing light in the film. I must say this film has challenged me to a level I have never felt challenged before,” she said.
This is the first time that the actress is working in a 3D movie and she said that the experience was very different and interesting.
“It is a completely different experience because 3D cameras are different from normal cameras. The camera angles are different and the way you take a shot is a little different. It took me a day to adapt to everything and then I realized how interesting the process is. Technically, it is a unique experience,” she said.
The movie ‘Jodi Breakers’ is a romantic comedy and is directed by Ashwini Chaudhary and produced by Prasar Vision Pvt, Ltd.
Other than R Madhavan and Bipasha Basu in main leads, the movie also features Omi Vaidya, Milind Soman, Dipanita Sharma, Mrinalini Sharma and Helen.
The movie is slated for February 24, 2012 release.
