Ac­tor Bi­pasha Basu, who has been spot­ted nu­mer­ous times with ac­tor Karan Singh Grover, says that she does not let link-up ru­mours make any dif­fer­ence to her equa­tion with Karan. The two were seen to­gether in their film Alone (2015), af­ter which there were re­ports of them dat­ing, and have of­ten been clicked on hol­i­days to­gether. “As I said, I have grown a thick skin over the years. Many things have been dis­cussed about me, but that doesn’t

re­ally stop me from liv­ing my per­sonal life. I was fool­ish when I was younger, but you learn with time. First, I should know what I’m do­ing, only then can I tell the world what I am do­ing, if I need to and I re­ally have to,” she says.

The ac­tor has been a part of the industry for over a decade and says she has never re­ally felt the pres­sure of be­ing a celebrity. “It all de­pends on the kind of per­son you are, your take on life and your ex­pec­ta­tions on what life should be like. I never re­ally car­ried the bag­gage of be­ing a celebrity,” she says, adding, “I live my life as just any other girl. I don’t think there are too many down­sides,” she says.

Bi­pasha says she has evolved as a per­son. “I have achieved so much in­de­pen­dence as a woman in this industry and some of it at a very early age. The kind of money I make, I can use for so many causes, for my fam­ily, and to pro­vide a lux­u­ri­ous life for my­self,” she says.

I didn’t want to judge a mu­si­cal or dance re­al­ity show,” she says. Mean­while, the ac­tor will also be work­ing on a web se­ries soon and says that the dig­i­tal medium is evolv­ing at a fast speed. “The big­gest names are a part of web se­ries. It’s just a mat­ter of time... within a year it’s go­ing to start evolv­ing as there is no cen­sor­ship on the in­ter­net. You have the free­dom of ex­pres­sion about what you want to write as a di­rec­tor and as an ac­tor. I’m re­ally happy that I’m tak­ing the step for­ward. It’s an ex­tremely ex­cit­ing se­ries that we are writ­ing. I know for a fact that peo­ple are go­ing to get hooked to it,” says Bi­pasha.
