Sexy bips rates among top 100


Bollywood’s most wicked heroine, Bipasha Basu, has panted her way to the top 100 list of sexiest movie scenes in a poll conducted by Britain’s Channel 4...
Thanks to her incessant heavy breathing and sexy acrobatics with John Abraham in Pooja Bhatt’s crime thriller, Jism , the film figures at number 92 in a list topped by Ursula Andress in Dr No .

Basic Instinct, in which Sharon Stone uncrosses her legs during police interrogation, is at number 5.

Channel 4’s review of Pooja Bhatt’s film is less than flattering (“only a vaguely sexy thriller by Western standards”), but it acknowledges Jism for raising the bar on sexual content in Bollywood.

“This remake of Double Indemnity, starring John Abraham and Bipasha Pasu (typo on their part, not ours), has turned the traditional portrayal of women in Bollywood movies on its head. Its heroine is strong, and open about her sexual desires,” the channel’s website says.

“The scenes of passion between the two leads had audiences queuing up to see the film in India, and the movie has already spawned a series of imitators,” it further reads.

Imitators? We are not sure if Bollywood wants to remake Jism , already a reproduction of the 1981 film, Body Heat , which in turn was a copy of Billy Wilder’s 1944 classic Double Indemnity .

Jism , the story of an adulterous Sonia Khanna (Basu), who conspires with lawyer Kabir Lal (John Abraham) to eliminate her husband, is directed by Amit Saxena and was this year’s first hit in Bollywood, which went through a rough patch last year.

The film scored over And God Created Woman (1956), which launched Brigitte Bardot as an international sexy symbol, and Roman Polanski's 1992 thriller, Bitter Moon , starring Hugh Grant.
