It was re­cently re­ported that Bi­pasha Basu Singh Grover (above), who was sup­posed to make an ap­pear­ance at an event in Pune, re­fused to do so, leav­ing the or­gan­is­ers in the lurch. How­ever, her spokesper­son says there is more to this story, and that the ac­tor is miffed with th­ese ru­mours.

A source says, “Bi­pasha had con­firmed her pres­ence at a Dahi Handi event in Pune, and even trav­elled there to ful­fil her com­mit­ment. But when she reached the venue, she re­alised that there were no se­cu­rity per­son­nel, and no bar­ri­cad­ing was done. The stage didn’t have a back­stage en­trance. Bi­pasha was asked to walk through the crowd, with­out any proper se­cu­rity. When she saw this, she re­fused to be part of the event as she was con­cerned about her safety.”

When con­tacted, the ac­tor’s spokesper­son con­firmed the news, and said, “The event was badly or­gan­ised, and Bi­pasha didn’t want to jeop­ar­dise her safety. Be­ing a thor­ough pro­fes­sional, she asked her team to re­turn the fee to the or­gan­is­ers that same night.”
