Has Bipasha Basu forgotten Kareena Kapoor?
The Players actor has a lot to say about her other Ajnabee co-stars, but nothing about Bebo. Or has it all been said already?
If you thought female actors can’t be just friends with the male actors, think again. Bipasha Basu has revealed that her favourite co-actors are Bobby Deol and Akshay Kumar. She starred with both of them in her debut film, the Abbas Mustan flick Ajnabee. “Both Bobby and Akshay are going to be my favourites because I didn’t know what I was doing in Ajnabee and (it was due to) the kind of support they gave me, including the directors, that I decided to be an actor,” she said at an event in Kolkata recently. We are just surprised that she didn’t mention the fourth lead actor of Ajnabee – Kareena Kapoor. It was Kareena who taught her a lot about relationships. Remember how the two had fought during the making of Ajnabee? Bebo had even allegedly called Bips a “kaali billi” (black cat). Since then, Bipasha hasbeen far more careful about how she treats her fellow B-towners and who she takes pangas with. Even when she and Katrina Kaif shared cold vibes during the shoot of Race because of the fight between their boyfriends John Abraham and Salman Khan, Bips kept her cool and did not let it affect her work. In fact, she has only positive things to say about her other female co-stars – Deepika Padukone and Minissha Lamba (Bachna Ae Haseeno), and more recently, Sonam Kapoor (Players). So how come she’s forgotten the one actor who made it all possible? Not even a teeny weeny thank you. Tsk tsk.
