Bipasha Basu Quotes:

  • I don’t think I’ve done any profound work yet… People ask me, ‘How would you want to be remembered?’ I tell them I don’t want to be remembered! I’m not here to become a Madhubala or receive a Lifetime Achievement Award. I’m not that kind of a person. And I’m not brash about it; it’s just the way I am.
  • I keep my distance from politics. Lots of money has been offered to me for campaigning over the years, and I have always refused. I used to be very politically aware and very opinionated, but I don’t want to involve myself.
  • When things have gone really wrong in my life, I’ve cried like a child. I have really, really cried. I cry it out. Two-three days I cry, and then I’m like, enough, time to deal with reality and figure a way out. This is the way I have dealt with everything.
  • I am a positive person. I am not cynical. If you are born in this world, no matter who you are, negative things will happen. If you aren’t positive as a person, you’ll be very unhappy. It’s extremely important to be positive, to laugh, to be happy, to accept life as it comes.
  • It was Vikram Bhatt and ‘Raaz’ that got me interested in the medium of cinema. Before that, I was like any other youngster dabbling with various things – modelling, films – without a definite direction or focus. Now that I’m working with all of them, life has come full circle for me.
  • You’re born single, you die single, but why not being in a relationship is some special ‘single’ status, I don’t understand. Life is less stress being single, I have to admit.
  • I believe everything negative that happens in your life is for a positive reason. If your heart breaks, you know that you are a human being and it happens. But you can’t mope over it. There’s only one life. You better get on ahead and fast. Fast enough not to let your past ever catch up with you.
  • Nothing can save something that is not meant to be, no matter how hard you try.
  • I have blind trust in people. Even if that ends up hurting me, I won’t change. I will go on trusting people because that’s the only way I know to love someone.
  • I can’t let the baggage of my private life get into work. Artists are more fragile than normal people. But I know that I am a role model for zillions of people, so no matter how deep you are hurting, you need to come out strong.
  • I want to tell women that you need to love yourself and make yourself a priority. It’s only when you are happy yourself, can you make everyone else around you happy. I am still a dreamer and still believe in fairy tales, but there is only that much one should give another person. You need to keep something for yourself.
  • I am so enriched because so much has happened in my life. The way I can express myself is because of the life I have led. It’s only when you experience life can you emote it.
  • Films with female protagonists don’t attract many eyeballs. Most of them are perceived as feminist films. If Bollywood starts giving women major roles in entertaining movies, then the audience, too, will open up to the idea of watching commercial films in which the actresses do more than just play the role of the hero’s love interest.
  • I do a film if it interests me, has a connect with the audience and some entertainment value. The rest doesn’t matter.
  • I enjoy the TV series ‘Dexter,’ where there’s a reason for every kill. Quentin Tarantino is a favorite, and a ‘Kill Bill’ action-packed movie would be up my street. I’d love to be India’s first scream queen!
  • I’m really bad at taking compliments, but whenever I get them, I tell myself, ‘Way to go, girl’ and move on.
  • I know I look good. The regular adjectives that come my way – sexy, hot, dusky, bong bombshell… I love them.
  • It is said that anyone who does commercial cinema is not acting, and anyone who does an art film is acting. I don’t believe it. I feel whenever you are doing a film, you are acting. So you need to be applauded for that. I won’t do art house cinemas. I want to make commercial films. I want my films to make money.
  • You can’t decide whom to fall in love with. It just happens.
  • I want to do entertaining films, where a woman gets the respect of being an actor.
  • You don’t have to do offbeat films to prove that you can act. I have done it but only to prove myself that I can fit convincingly into every kind of films. I want to do the 100 crore film where the hero does all the work, and I get to relax.
  • I am very proud of my role in ‘Singularity.’ It pushed me into the territory of period romance. It was a very emotional and challenging role.
  • Yes, exes can be good friends, but after a certain time. Though no break-up is a good break-up, time heals everything, including broken friendships. It also depends on the kind of people they are, their mindsets and the reasons for the break ups.
  • Kissing onscreen is the worst thing in the world. I’m OK with lovemaking scenes, but I hate kissing.
  • I was a lady gunda in school. Everyone was scared of me, and I was really short and round.
