With more than 30 films in a ca­reer span­ning over 14-years, Bi­pasha Basu (left) has been through her share of highs and lows, but the ac­tor says there was a time when she felt in­se­cure.

Bi­pasha, 36, who made her de­but in a sup­port­ing role with Ajn­abee (2001), bagged her first lead­ing role in Vikram Bhatt’s Raaz in 2002.

But al­most a decade af­ter her break­through role, there came a phase when she felt jit­tery as an ac­tor.

“I felt fear when Raaz 3 re­leased. That year I was fear­ful. Be­cause I was chang­ing every­thing about my life, get­ting back to work. It was an in­se­cure phase. But I am not a born in­se­cure per­son. So that was the only time I felt a lit­tle scared,” says Bi­pasha.

The Vikram Bhatt-di­rected hor­ror movie was a hit and re­leased af­ter a string of her dull box of­fice out­ings such as Aakrosh (2010), Dum Maaro Dum (2011) and Play­ers (2012).

The ac­tor adds that she over­came the phase with time.

“I am not an over am­bi­tious per­son. I do what I like to do. Life goes on. Once you feel that you’re again back to your own groove, you find it, you get your con­fi­dence back. Since then, things have been good,” she says.

Fol­low­ing Raaz 3, Bi­pasha was seen mostly in hor­ror films such as Crea­ture 3D (2014) and Alone (2015), but she says she feels con­fi­dent about do­ing other gen­res as well.

“I am con­fi­dent with every­thing. You put me in the worst film of 2014 — Humshakals, (ask me to) stand be­hind and not say a di­a­logue, I am still con­fi­dently stand­ing there. I don’t have a lack of con­fi­dence in any genre. I give my 100% to every­thing that I take up,” Bi­pasha says.

I felt fear the year Raaz 3 re­leased. That year I was fear­ful. Be­cause I was chang­ing every­thing about my life,
