Actress Bipasha Basu, who decided to refrain from promoting ‘Humshakals’ prior to its release, says she won`t work with Sajid Khan, the film`s director, ever again.
Bipasha, who was seen as one of the six key characters in the comic film which wasn`t received well, has nothing against the film`s co-producers Vashu Bhagnani and Fox Star Studios. But she is glad she took a stand against promoting ‘Humshakals’ when it was required.
She had said she was “extremely disturbed by the end result” of the film and “didn`t know how to promote the film with all honesty”.
Asked if she will work with Sajid again, Bipasha said here in an interaction: “No, I will never work with him.”
“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.
“I was six minutes into it and I don`t know what I was doing in it,” she said of the movie, which also stars Saif Ali Khan, Ram Kapoor, Riteish Deshmukh, Tamannaah Bhatia and Esha Gupta.
