In a decade-long career Bipasha Basu has achieved many milestones but the actress says there have been times when she was not a "go-getter" in Bollywood and she blames herself for that.
The 33-year-old actress, who started her cinematic journey with 'Ajnabee' and 'Raaz', says she is no longer content with doing just whatever comes her way.
Why Raaz 3 is special for Bipasha
"I have become more greedy as an actor. There were times when I was not a go getter. Most of the times I have done things that have come to me. I lacked the spirit of going and getting it and I blame myself for that. I know there is a kind of hunger to do some good work. I am just going to try my best," Bipasha said.
Her last two films -- multi-starrer 'Players' and rom-com 'Jodi Breakers' -- did not do well. The actress is now looking forward to make a successful comeback to box office with her supernatural thriller 'Raaz 3'.
The 3D film will see Bipasha portraying the role of an actress who resorts to black magic to stay at the top in Bollywood when career starts to decline.
Asked whether actresses go through such insecurities, Bipasha accepted that realities like this exist.
"It is quite crazy but is stemming from somewhere. There are realities like this existing. It is just sad to see human beings degenerate so much for just wants in life," she says. The industry, which is dominated by male actors, is currently focusing on actresses with films like 'The Dirty Picture' and upcoming 'Heroine' and Bipasha finds it a welcome change.
"Bollywood is very hero centric. They are safe bait and given a chance I would invest in them too because they pull in crowd. I also want to be part of a 100 crore film. Why not? If you want to survive in this business it is best to be safe.
