Bipasha Basu, who previously refrained from promoting her comedy film Humshakals before its release, says she will never work with filmmaker Sajid Khan again. Sajid Khan has directed Humshakals.
Bipasha, who was seen as one of the 6 main characters in Humshakals which wasn’t received well, has nothing against the co-producers Vashu Bhagnani and Fox Star Studios. But she is glad she took a stand against promoting Humshakals when it was required.
She says she was extremely disturbed by the outcome of the film and didn’t know how to promote the film with all honesty.
When asked if she will work with Sajid Khan again in the future, she replied; “No, I will never work with him.”
Mentioning no issue with Vashu, she said “I have nothing against Vashu-ji and Fox Star Studios. They have put in so much money and I respect that. I love Vashu-ji, it’s just that I didn’t want to come to a podium and lie and look like a fool. I am the worst liar in the world. So I took a stand.”
Bipasha says such situations are rare.
“I have been in this industry for way too long. I have worked with many people and nobody has said anything against me. It’s rare that you make such a mistake; it’s one of those films. I did this film on the basis of trust. Anyone who has seen the film will understand why I didn’t promote it,” she added.
“I was six minutes into it and I don’t know what I was doing in it,” she said.
Humshakals also stars Saif Ali Khan, Ram Kapoor, Riteish Deshmukh, Tamannaah Bhatia and Esha Gupta as key characters.
