Bipasha Basu refuses to promote her first film Jaane Hoga Kya
Bipasha Basu’s performance in the film Corporate was appreciated and even her bit role in Omkara received an average response. However now that Bipasha is being appreciated and noticed for her performances she has become choosier. Recently the actress offended filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt when she said that she would not do a film like Jism again. Now the sensuous Basu gal has irked another producer Alok Srivastava. Bipasha Basu has refused to promote her very first film which will now see the light of day, Jaane Hoga Kya. This despite the fact that this was the first film that she had signed on and it is this high-handed attitude of Bipasha that has upset producer Alok.
Jaane Hoga Kya will be releasing on August 25 and hence the producer of the film had organized some press conferences to promote the film. Unfortunately Bipasha did not turn up for the event and did not even bother to call up and inform the producer about her absence. Moreover the actress has not been responding to any of the producer’s calls or messages. Producer Alok says “Bipasha has been giving me problems from the start, I was the first producer to sign her on for a film, yet she stayed away from promoting the film and nor did she bother to inform us about her absence.”
However when Producer Alok spoke to Bipasha’s secretary, he was informed that Bips was not interested in promoting this film anymore. Producer Alok further adds “I agree that the film was delayed quite a bit, but Bipasha is brilliant in it and hence has no reason not to promote the film except that she is not confident about her performance in the film.” The film also stars Aftab Shivdasani, Preeti Jhangiani and Rahul Dev. Producer Alok claims that ultimately it is his film that will suffer due to Bipasha’s lack of professionalism.
Recently Salman Khan too was seen promoting his film Shaadi Kar Ke Phas Gaya Yaar which has been stuck for the last five years. And although Salman is a big star right now, he has been a thorough professional and promoted his film adequately. Bipasha recently did Omkara which also stars Kareena and now both Kareena and Bipasha have patched up after a four year long-standing feud. Bips will soon be seen in an Abbas-Mustan film and recently she attended the launch party of Madhur Bhandarkar and Percept Picture Company’s collaborative production house along with beau John Abraham.
