Bipasha Basu: Not a conscious strategy to just do ‘Queen of Horror’ films


Bipasha Basu is known as Bollywood’s ‘Queen of Horror’, and the actress says it’s not a pre-planned move.

She said she will be glad if she can get credibility to the genre with her work.

 “As long as it’s a compliment which I believe it is, I take it all humbly and happily. Horror is a hugely recognised genre in cinema and if I can bring any credibility to that genre in India, I would be more than honoured to do it,” Bipasha said in a statement.

The actress, who will soon get married to her “Alone” co-star Karan Singh Grover, added: “It’s not a conscious strategy to just do horror films but I enjoy doing them. I think the opportunity of storytelling is quite varied in a horror film. Supernatural has this strange appeal to the audience which in turn makes the movies work at the box office.”

Bipasha has done varied films like “Jism”, “Bachna Ae Haseeno” and “Dhoom 2”, but her act in horror movies like “Raaz”, “Darna Zaroori Hai”, “Raaz 3: The Third Dimension”, “Aatma” and “Alone” made a mark.

She met Karan while shooting for “Alone”, which will beam on Zee Cinema channel on April 8. The actress said: “It was an amazing experience and it was a pleasure working with Karan.”.

The duo will tie the knot on April 30.
