It was reported that Bipasha Basu was mobbed by fans in Ahmedabad while promoting Raaz 3 a few days back and was irritated with the chaos. However, the actress denies such reports.
‘Even I don’t know what happened. I have got a lot of love from everywhere — be it Jaipur, Ahmedabad, and Kolkata. So I don’t know from where this news came, though there was a lot of crowd,’ she said.
‘I was not irritated at all, in fact, I am very happy with the way publicity is happening. There is a lot of love, nothing negative has happened. So I am unaware about where the news cropped up from,’ she added.
Meanwhile, as a promotional tactic for her horror thriller Raaz 3, Bipasha recently distributed lemon and chillies, known to ward off bad omen, to rickshawallahs.
When asked if she is promoting superstition by doing such things, Bipasha, 33, said: ‘See, everyone is superstitious. The higher a person reaches, the more emotional and insecure he is. So everyone is superstitious a bit, like the cat crossing your way, lemon and chillies being put up. All this happens in everyone’s house. So we are not promoting superstition, these are small things everyone believes in.’
Raaz 3 is the third film in the Raaz franchise that began in 2002. The film marks the comeback of director Vikram Bhatt and Bipasha to the Bhatt camp and hits theatres Friday.
