Sexy siren Bipasha Basu has men going gaga behind her. But what turns on this Bengali beauty? "I love men, who can cook. I would like my man to cook for me", says the actress. We hope John, for your sake, you know how to handle the kitchen. Seems like even the way to a woman's heart is through her stomach.
Currently waiting for her next release Corporate, Bipasha says, "I am very close to this character because I have come from the family where there is no son and every daughter was given that freedom. For me, it was a little difficult because I was a topper in school. My father thought I'll become an engineer an architect or a doctor because I was a science student but I became an actress. Initially, he was little skeptical about it. But when I started doing well, my parents gave me go ahead. It feels great that being a woman you are allowed to do anything you want. There is no pressure that you have crossed 25 and you have to get married."
Bipasha calls her parents as one of the most romantic couples in the world. "I have grown up seeing my father and my mother. They are an ideal romantic couple till date. They are so much into each other that my father still cooks for my mother and vice versa."
When asked about her new look she says, "This is for Abbas Mastaan's untitled film. This film requires a different look so I chopped it from Sapna Bhavani (of Mad-O-Wot). But I did trim in London again because my hair grows real fast. I am talking about short hair and suddenly it becomes so long that I had to cut it again. It's a sign of being a Bengali. Good health and good skin. I am working out every day. Everyday is so hectic but I am enjoying my work so it's always been fun", she concludes.
