The actress has done movies like Raaz, Raaz 3 and Aatma in the horror genre and will next be seen in Vikram Bhatt’s Creature 3D.

At the trailer launch of the film, Bipasha said; “Everyone keeps asking me why I do horror films. I don’t know what it is but there is some kind of connect. I feel the genre is not so important the story telling is. In a film like Creature, where I have a fantastic role then why shouldn’t I do it. In real life, I still get scared soon. Nothing has changed on that front.”

“You can call me whatever you want ‘horror queen’, ‘fear goddess’ or anything I am happy with it. I have done lot of supernatural films and all kind of films have that element of fear, horror. Creature is different from ghost, spirit and supernatural films. It has an element of fear,” she added.

India’s first 3D monster thriller film Creature 3D stars Bipasha Basu and Pakistani actor and model Imran Abbas in lead. It is directed by Vikram Bhatt.

“It was very difficult film for me to shoot as I had to imagine the Creature. But Vikram’s guidance helped me a lot. We used to do every shot at least three times due to technical reasons. It was quite an exhausting film for everyone. I have not done a film like this before,” Bipasha said.

Bipasha launched the 3D theatrical trailer of the film on July 16 with T-Series’ Bhushan Kumar, Vikram and his mentor Mahesh Bhatt.

Apart from Bipasha and Vikram, the film doesn’t have any known faces but the actress feels the story will bring audiences.

“There is no pressure as such. It is a very entertaining and thrilling film. We have a Creature which nobody else has. For me the biggest co-star in today’s time is Creature as he is not there in any other film,” Bipasha told reporters.

Creature 3D is produced by Bhushan and Krishan Kumarunder the banner of T-Series and is scheduled to be released on September 12.

On her last release Humshakals, Vashu Bhagnani had openly said he would think twice before working with Bipasha.

However she said; “I respect Vashu Bhagnani and the other producer Fox Star Studios. As with the latter, I have given my biggest hit film Raaz, I have a lot of love for them and I wish them all the best.”

Bipasha was apparently unhappy with her role in the Sajid Khan’s Humshakals. But the 35-year-old actress reveals she does not mind doing movies with multiple stars.

“I have done a lot of films with multiple stars over the years. I have enjoyed the process of doing both multi and solo films equally. The idea is to connect with the film, live with the experience and enjoy it. It is very rare when it is not enjoyable and it is sad when that doesn’t happen,” the 35-year-old said.
