"I gave a horror film expression"
Bollywood beauty Bipasha Basu opened up about why her parents initially disapproved of her now-husband, Karan Singh Grover.
The happy couple has completed four years of marital bliss and they continue to relish in their love for one another.
According to a recent interview with Pinkvilla, the Jism (2003) actress, who is usually private about her personal life, opened up about her marriage.
Speaking about ongoing pregnancy rumours, Bipasha shared her frustration. She said:
“Every time I gain a little weight, they make me pregnant. It is irritating.”
Bipasha Basu added: “I always say I am pregnant but no one believes me.”
Recalling the first moment she saw Karan, Bipasha explained:
“When I first saw him, he was looking handsome. They were discussing costumes on sets and they were talking about not making us wear the kind of pants.
“I had forgotten what pants he was wearing, so I looked under the table. I do such silly things without thinking.”
The actress continued to mention why her parents were against her relationship with Karan Singh Grover. She revealed:
“My mom and dad were really against Karan. They felt like their favourite daughter is finally getting serious with someone who has not had great relationships in past.
“But the turn around was the parents who did not acknowledge him called him their son.”
Bipasha Basu also continued to recall the time when Karan proposed to her on New Year’s Eve. She said:
“We were on a vacation and it was New Year’s Eve, and I was filming fireworks.
“Suddenly I saw Karan was seriously saying something and then a ring popped in the frame and I gave a horror film expression and the phone fell off. I have that proposal on record.”
Recently, Bipasha opened up about how she was harassed by a top producer in Bollywood. She said:
“I was a young girl and I was staying alone. I always had this image of mine which was fierce and of someone who won’t tolerate any bulls***.
“So a lot of people were scared of me anyway. But there was this one time, I remember when I signed a film with a top producer.
“I had come back home and I got a text message from him saying, ‘Missing your smile.’
“I was too young and I felt a little weird. But I ignored it. After a few days, he again sent me the same text.”
On the professional front, Bipasha Basu can be seen alongside her husband Karan Singh Grover in their recent film, Dangerous (2020).
