Mumbai, April 14 (IANS) Dusky and doe-eyed glamour girl Bipasha Basu, who got a makeover in Madhur Bhandarkar's 'Corporate', is trying to create a balance between commercial and art house cinema by doing unusual films like 'Pankh'.

'I believe that I do have the intelligence to understand that I need to keep the balance between commercial entertainer and art-house and only then can I command different audiences,' Bipasha told IANS.Bipashu Basu

'It is interesting for an actor to think about audience interest, but then I would not do a film like 'Pankh'.'

In director Shudipto Chattopadhyay's 'Pankh', Bipasha plays an imaginary character.

'I play an alter ego. I am an imaginary character - the protagonist in the film is a boy called Maradona; he has done a fabulous job,' said Bipasha who was recently seen in 'Race'.

'It is about a boy who goes through gender confusion. He is a child artiste but plays a female child artiste and is very popular. Then he grows up and wants to be launched as a hero but there is a kind of confusion in his mind.

'The boy's family is poor and they want to make it big. The pressure of parents and ridicule make it a very sad situation for him. Eventually he creates this imaginary character he is in love with. And that imaginary character happens to be an actress as well. It is quite a crazy role and many would say why Bipasha has done it, but I like it so I do it.'

Bipasha is also doing Rituparno Ghosh's Bengali film 'Shab Choritro Kalpanik' where she plays Prasenjit Chatterjee's wife who falls in love with her husband after his death.
