Mumbai, March 21 (IANS) Actress Bipasha Basu feels there are not good enough roles for women in Bollywood, and that there is still so much more that women can do in the field.

"We have not done enough. There is so much more to do. We all talk about the Oscars and the Golden Globes. Every actress over there is above 40 years of age. The kind of roles written for women there are just so brilliant. It's not like we will not accept those films here. It is a matter of time," Bipasha said in an interaction here.

Nevertheless, she admits the change in taste is visibly better.

"Now the best thing is that married actresses are being accepted. At one point of time, we were not even supposed to say that 'I have a boyfriend'. Things have changed now," she said.

With newer films being accepted nowadays, Bipasha credits the audience. She feels that different films are being liked today due to the audience's demand.

"It is only because of the people who watch these. The more you watch these films, the more eyeballs they get and the more these films will be made," she said.

After being a part of masala films like "No Entry", "Phir Hera Pheri" and "Dhoom 2", Bipasha seems to have moved on to different genres. The actress feels that a commercial film is a safe bet, but that doesn't stop her from experimenting.

"I have done these films. I can't say that I am the brave one who hasn't. But fortunately or unfortunately, for me, safe does not work. When I want a break, I will do such films again," she said.

Last seen in Vikram Bhatt's "Raaz 3", Bipasha will soon be seen in Suparn Verma's "Aatma" next. The actress said that she doesn't want to be a part of only horror films, but admits it would have been "foolish" let good scripts slip by just because of some similarities.

The actress also revealed that she gets offered many horror films on a weekly basis, but doesn't take up everything.
