Queen of horror

Bipasha-BasuBipasha Basu hates to be known as the ‘face of horror genre’, but at the same time she is glad that she has been able to make it popular in Bollywood.

Bipasha hopes that her upcoming supernatural thriller Aatma opposite Nawazuddin Siddiqui, directed by Suparn Verma, will strike a chord with the audience.

Bipasha stressed how horror as a genre hasn’t been properly explored in Bollywood.

Having starred in films such as Raaz, Rakht, Raaz 3 and the latest Aatma, the actor enjoys working in these films. “Horror films evoke a certain kind of emotion in the audience. As viewers, you will have an expression coupled with excitement. One can be scared, choked with emotion, can cry or laugh, but one can never fall asleep in between while watching a crisp horror film,” Bipasha said.

“Raaz 3 managed to gross Rs.94 crore, which is huge money for a film made on a modest budget. The film was enjoyed by both the masses and the classes, which goes on to prove that the audience is looking forward to watching films in this genre,” she added.

Aatma is about Maya’s relationship with her abusive husband, who tries to take her five-year-old daughter to the other world after his death. Nawazuddin’s presence has made a major difference in increasing the depth of the film. “Both of us belong to different schools of acting and coming together for Aatma was a whole new experience,” Bipasha said.
