Bipasha Basu has been in the film industry since a very long time, and she feels that actor’s live a very sad life. She even mentions that after a point superstars fade away and are only remembered again once they are dead.
“An actor’s life is very sad. The biggest of superstars in our country fade away after some time and are remembered only when they die. But what to do? It is very vulnerable, very sad, but that is the way it is. Nothing is permanent in their life,” Bipasha said.
She further added, “Once you achieve success, you just want to work, you don’t want to be forgotten. It is an emotion that every actor worldwide, male or female, goes through.”
She feels that people want to know everything about an actor’s life and that’s the reason why films like ‘The dirty Picture’, ‘Heroine’ and ‘Raaz3′ are made.
“It is an interesting profession to make a film on – either the actor’s life or an actress’. In today’s time everybody wants to be an actor. It is a fascinating profession and people want to know about behind the scenes. And that is the reason there have been so many movies made on the same topic,” said the 33 year old who plays the role of an actress whose career is on the downfall in Raaz3.
So are these films based one hundred percent on reality? she tell us, “These are all fictional and little drawn from reality. Such films are basically different types of storytelling of different directors, which make for very interesting stories.”
She also mentions, people and media shouldn’t forget the fact that actors are human too, and need some private space.
“Poeple are always interested to know what you are doing in your personal space. It makes great news for people to discuss over a meal. But they forget we are also humans, who have a personal life, struggles and we too go through good and bad times.”
“It is quite harsh at times to expect an actor to be okay with whatever is written about him. Actors and not super humans, they are normal people,” said the actress, who has also worked in Tamil, Telugu and Bengali language films.
Bipasha’s future projects include English film ‘Singularity and Suparn Verma’s ‘Aatma’.
