Mumbai, Feb 24 “Jodi Breakers” has a song “Bipasha” composed by Salim-Sulaiman, but actress Bipasha Basu had apprehensions before lending her name to the number.
“It’s a song and it’s a dance number where I have performed. I had apprehension before performing it but (director) Ashwini Chaudhary insisted that I should listen to the song. The composition by Salim-Sulaiman was excellent. I made everyone hear it – friends and family and they said they liked the song and that it will go waste if you don’t perform in it,” Bipasha told IANS.
“I have been very protective about my name. I don’t even lend it to a character… This is the film I am really attached to. So for a nice film I didn’t mind lending my name,” she added.
“Jodi Breakers”, which has released Friday, sees Bipasha romancing Madhavan.
Bipasha, who came out with a fitness DVD sometime back, says being fit is an added bonus.
“I believe I need to be healthy, I need to respect my body. I always preach and push people to love themselves and look good,” she said adding that stress is taking a toll on people in their 30s.
“Stress related diseases are everywhere and the age group has come down to 30… it’s not far when it will reach the 20s. I always believe when you look after yourself, the added bonus is that you look good,” the 33-year-old said.
But at the same time, Bipasha eats well and added: “I am a big eater but I eat healthy. But I work out a lot. I am very blessed that I love to workout. When I go to the gym, I have the biggest smile on my face and people are jealous of me. Everybody is like, ‘What is this? Whenever you come here you look so happy.’ People think I am very motivational.”
