Director Sajid Khan’s ‘Humshakals’ is all set to hit the theaters. However, one of its mega stars, Bipasha Basu, has been notably missing from all the promotional events of the film. She along with Tamannah and Esha are the three leading ladies of this complete entertainer and comedy film. At first, the film crew said that Bipasha cannot attend promotions because of ill health and she will join the team once she is feeling better. However, in a promotional event in New Delhi, Sajid Khan commented that only Bipasha can say why she is not promoting the film. “Bipasha won’t be joining for promotions and we are extremely sorry for that. But that’s okay. The reasons for not joining us in the promotions are best known to her. And that’s a fact,” he said.
The actress at last broke her silence. In an open letter, she wrote, “This is to put an end to all the discussions around my absence for Humshakals promotions. I take full responsibility of getting into a film only on the basis of trust. But after dubbing for my character in the film, as I had professionally committed to do so I’m extremely disturbed by the end result of the same.”
It is rumored that Bipasha felt sidelined by her junior co artists Esha and Tamannah. She is being paid more than either of them and also has a meatier role. However, Bipasha wishes the best for all her co stars in her letter. In fact, she thanks everyone from the Fox Studios to the technicians, but the name of Sajid Khan is notably missing from the list.
In her letter, Bipasha writes, “In these circumstances I didn’t know how to promote a film with all honesty and that’s why I thought it was better to stay away. I am confident that the film will be true to its genre and will be a full entertainer because of the people involved. I wish fox star studios who I have had my biggest hit with Raaz 3 and Vashu ji who is a fantastic producer all the best. Wish all my co stars Saif, Riteish, Tamannaah, Esha and the technicians best of luck. Sometimes, certain journeys cannot be completed and this is one of them – no one to be blamed, combination of things that made me disrupt my journey.”
