Bips to play double role again
While people tackle their obsession for white skin by slapping on fairness creams, Bipasha Basu
has willingly decided to play an African in Ajay
Devgan’s All The Best. Earlier, she was signed on only to play Ajay’s wife, but she bagged the second role last Friday.
The producers are not willing to compromise on Bipasha’s African makeover and have hired veteran make-up artists from Hollywood to give her the right look. Explaining Ajay’s decision to cast Bipasha in the second role, our source said, “Ajay was looking for a dusky girl to play an African. Mallika Sherawat and Tabu were approached to play that role, but things didn’t work out. Several other girls auditioned, but no one fit the bill.”
Then Bipasha, who earlier had a double role in Dhoom 2, solved the dilemma with a clever suggestion. Our source added, “She said she could play the African’s role too. Sanjay Dutt plays the African girl’s boyfriend in the film.”
However, co-producer Kumar Mangat said, “The final decision regarding that role will be taken in a couple of days.”
All The Best is directed by Rohit Shetty and co-stars Fardeen Khan and Mugdha Godse.
