Bipasha Basu

She sheds her glamour for Priyadarshan’s Aakrosh, a film based on honour killings

Bipasha Basu

Why did you choose this script?

The subject was very interesting and working with Priyadarshan was the attraction.

It’s a serious subject.

Yes, it’s based on honour killings, an issue that needs to be addressed.

Will such a film work?

You know, these honour killings are happening in big cities like Delhi too and awareness is required. I think audiences are intelligent and as for me, I enjoyed being part of this.

Priyadarshan is now known for comedy.

He has done Virasat too, but sometimes there are constraints that get you into doing stereotypical things both as an actor or a director.

Any highlights while shooting?

The shooting itself. Priyan sir is very quick and you have to be on high alert at all times. Working with friends like Ajay (Devgan), Akshaye (Khanna) was Paresh Rawal was really comfortable.

How has it turned out?
