Bipasha airs her hurt

Dusky beauty Bipasha Basu finally speaks up! It was speculated since long that the Bong babe’s relation with filmmaker Sajid Khan had soured and hence the actress gave a complete miss to her upcoming film ‘Humshakals’ promotional events.

And now at a time when the makers and the stars of the film are leaving no stones unturned in promoting the film just before its release this Friday, actress BipashaBasu took to Twitter talking about her absence from the promotional events, putting rest to all the rumours!

In her post the actress said that she was not satisfied with the end result and hence has decided to stay away from the movie. Bipasha would be seen sharing her screen space with Esha Gupta and Tamannaah Bhatia.

But the buzz is that the senior actress felt sidelined opposite her juniors Tamannaah and Esha Gupta, leading to her fallout with the promotions.

In one of her earlier misses, the film’s cast had said that Bipasha was unwell and hence couldn’t be a part of the promotion. But later, during the promotions of ‘Humshakals’ in New Delhi director Sajid told reporters that Bipasha’s absence from the film’s promotions were ‘best known to her’. Earlier this week we had reported Tamannaah too confirming the news saying that Bipasha was out of the promotional events!

And now, just two days after Sajid’s statement to the media, Bipasha posted on Twitter on Wednesday, “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.”

The note doesn’t mention anything about her director Sajid Khan. Bipasha further wrote: “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, Tamannah, 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.”

News is that apparently, Bipasha was also said to be promised an exclusive promo along with Saif Ali Khan but it never materialised.

In her following post on Twitter, Bipasha Basu wrote, “I can never be against a film.”

‘Humshakals’  is comedy film directed by Sajid Khan. The film features Saif Ali Khan, Riteish Deshmukh and Ram Kapoor in triple roles besides Tamannaah, Bipasha Basu and Esha Gupta. The film would hit the theatres this Friday.
