NEW BUZZ

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Ac­tor Bi­pasha Basu is sur­prised that peo­ple are talk­ing about the can­cel­la­tion of her web se­ries, The Client, now. She says it got shelved years ago.

Last month, there were re­ports that the Ro­han Sippy se­ries, which was ru­moured to be in­spired from Amer­i­can TV show, Scan­dal, has been shelved be­cause it went over the bud­get. Bi­pasha says, “It was a big project and it was shot on a mas­sive scale. But as far as I know, they went over bud­get with the pi­lot episode, and that’s why they had to call the project off. I’m sur­prised that peo­ple are crack­ing this and talk­ing about it now, when it hap­pened a few years ago.”

The 39-year-old ad­mits that she was gut­ted that the se­ries didn’t take off but has learned to not be both­ered by th­ese things. “Of course, you do feel bad that it didn’t take off, but th­ese things are not in your hands.” The ac­tor, who last starred in the film, Alone (2015), adds, “We have so many films that get stuck in a limbo. Look at what has hap­pened with Shoo­jit Sir­car’s film, Shoebite, with Mr. [Amitabh] Bachchan; it has still not re­leased. So, yes you do get up­set, but then you be­come used to it. Now, it doesn’t af­fect me that much.”
