I am happy & at peace with myself : Bipasha Basu

Bong beauty Bipasha Basu, whose film ‘Creature 3D’ released yesterday, would now be seen in her first Hollywood venture on the big screen. What’s more, the dusky actress, who sports a no make-up look as a Maratha warrior Tulaja Naik in the film, says that she has been appreciated for her looks in ‘The Lovers’. The movie is directed by Roland Joffe and is a time travel romantic adventure saga, which was earlier titled ‘Singularity’.

Talking about the film in a recent interview, the actress said, “It’s called ‘The Lovers’ now. It will be coming in a few months. I am really looking forward to it. It’s one of my most challenging roles in recent times. People tell me I look my best in ‘The Lovers’ I am advised to do the no make-up look more often.”

The actress further revealed that she believes looking good is all about being in good health and being happy. “I think looking good has to do with looking after your health and being in a happy space. I am happy at peace with myself. Everything around me is peaceful and under control. You know, my greatest stress used to be my younger sister’s career. By god’s grace she’s doing well for herself. She’s a journalist. That’s a load off my back. Nothing gives me more happiness than to see my family well settled,” Bipasha said.

When asked about what kept her strong as a person even during tough times, the actress said that life is the best teacher. Sharing her thoughts, the actress said, “It’s really very simple. When the Tsunami strikes, you have no choice but to try to swim to safety across the choppy waves. One has to protect oneself from the dark forces when they hit you. You never know when they will hit you. It’s life. The hard times are bound to come. Nothing prepares you for them.”
