Bengali Babe Bipasha To Play A Kashmiri Girl!


Gone are the days of the fair skinned and light eyed Poonam Dhillon played a Kashmiri girl. Now Bengali siren Bipasha Basu is all set to break this existing stereotype.“When you think of a Kashmiri girl in our movies, what comes to mind is a fair-skinned, light-eyed girl. But I want to disprove that myth. The pre-conceived notions have to be overcome,” Bipasha told IANS.Infact she has even asked her producers to invite a born-and-bred Kashmiri girl to Mumbai so that she can study her body language, speech patterns and mannerisms, for her role.“I’ve never done a film like this before. The role requires me to be someone else altogether. I’ve to change my entire personality. And for this I needed help. I wanted to play the character the way girls really are today in Kashmir. Very basic.“I’ve done a bit role in another authentic film - Prakash Jha’s ‘Apaharan’. For that matter, Madhur Bhandarkar’s ‘Corporate’ was very real and so is Rituparno Ghosh’s ‘Sab Charitra Kalpanik’. But ‘Lamha’ is something else.”“I think I’m going to be more keen on getting it right than the director. Going to Kashmir and getting to know the local way of life was difficult. All said and done it’s still not entirely safe in Kashmir.Indeed… this is where she can compromise on her professionalism!
