If Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan can do it, why not Bengali belle Bipasha Basu? Sources claim that the dusky dame will be soon seen for the first time in a Bhojpuri film opposite Manoj Tiwari.
The film is titled Kashi and is reportedly based on the holy city of Varanasi. The film will be directed by Gajendra Singh and will also star Shatrughan Sinha in a pivotal role. Confirming the news, an elated Manoj said that the movie will revolve around the fact that despite witnessing many terror attacks, Varanasi has never lost its spirit. The film is to go on floors in August.
Bipasha Basu was last seen playing the role of a single mother in Suparn Verma's Aatma, which also starred National Award winner Nawazuddin Siddiqui.
