From a model to a popular Bollywood star, Bipasha Basu's journey hasn't been one without her share of ups and downs. But she has taken every experience in her stride and says she has emerged as an evolved person.
"Today, I am a refined actor, lived a little more life, have seen a lot, handle situations, not just a relationship, career-wise I have fallen down, come up again. I have had my run of relationship crisis, staying away from my parents for a long time, loans to pay at times I didn't know how to pay," Bipasha told an Oye! 104.8 FM radio channel host.
The 33-year-old made her Bollywood debut in 2001 with "Ajnabee". She was dating Dino Moreo that time, but parted ways with him in 2002. Then she became romantically involved with her "Raaz" co-star John Abraham, whom she dated for around eight years.
Professionally, her career picked up with films like "No Entry", "Dhoom", "Corporate" and "Bachna Ae Haseeno". Her latest release "Raaz 3" received a good opening, and Bipasha is happy the way life has shaped up for her.
"From 1997 to 2012, I've lived a wholesome life, moved from one room to one BHK (bedroom, hall, kitchen) to two BHK sharing with a friend. Then bought a car, but didn't know how to drive and also couldn't afford a driver.
"Finally, my friends ended up driving, so I realised there was no point of buying a car. I had a very broken life, yes sometimes broken down, sometimes very strong, so I feel I am a very evolved human being right now," she added.
For now, Bipasha awaits the launch of her second fitness DVD, and her debut international project "Singularity", will hit the screens early next year.
