Mumbai Feb 14 Bipasha Basu is known for her bold roles in “Jism”, “Raaz” and “Race”. But when it comes to locking lips on big screen, the actress isn’t comfortable.
“I am scared of kissing on screen. Yes, on-screen kissing nerves me to death and I had a really very uncomfortable experience in ‘Jodi Breakers’ with R. Madhavan who is a friend,” Bipasha told IANS.
“I had to kiss him, it was important for the film, so there was no convincing that was required. I knew I would do it but the process is not easy.
“Even for ‘Raaz 3′, it’s not going to be easy but don’t scare me from now. When it comes to it, we shall see,” she added.
The Bipasha-Madhavan starrer romantic comedy “Jodi Breakers” is coming out Feb 24.
But Bipasha won’t mind kissing — for her role.
“I am not dumb because I seek films and kissing is the integral part of sex, romance, passion whatever expression you are trying to show. We watch English films all the time and we watch Hindi films where these things have become regular.
“I as an individual find it tough to do. I will do it as it’s my work, but I will be very uncomfortable,” the 33-year-old said.
Director Ashwini Chaudhary’s “Jodi Breakers” will see Bipasha-Madhavan’s for the first time. The actress says their onscreen chemistry has got some rave reviews.
“I love Madhavan as an actor… Response that me and Maddy have received as a couple has been stupendous.
“Anyone who had a doubt on us, they come back saying we have a very unusual chemistry going on. And when you see the film, you want them to be together. I like our chemistry on screen. Besides we think alike.”
This is Bipasha’s first romantic comedy.
“It has good content. Like the West comes out with a lot of romcom and they are like really bad one – worse than the other.
“Sometimes we tend to ape them in our romcom but what is nice is that this has a story which has a proper thought in it.”
She feels apart from the content, the concept of the film is also unusual.
“It’s a unique film. It’s an unusual concept and unusual profession. Lot of couples are unhappy and they just don’t know how to separate. I believe if they are not happy in a relationship, it is better to get separated and find a new life rather than die in a marriage. So, what ‘Jodi Breakers’ are doing is that they don’t believe in breaking happy couples,” she said.
However, in real life, Bipasha, who separated from long-time boyfriend John Abraham last year, says her hands are too full to worry about others.
“I am a firm believer in love. But I am neither a jodi breaker not a jodi maker. I don’t advice anybody anything. I am dealing with myself and there is too much to deal with,” she said.
