She is seen as one of the most glamorous girls in B-town -- and true to her image, actress Bipasha Basu prefers performance-oriented roles in commercially entertaining films to off-beat cinema.
"My choice with films has been very quirky. Whenever I have performed in an unsafe space, it has worked well for me. At this point of time, I am in a very greedy phase where I want performance-oriented roles and a very commercially entertaining film," she said.
"I don't want to do a performance-oriented role in an art film. I want people to realise that I am a good actor within the realms of a commercially entertaining film," she added.
Despite coming from a non-film background, the model-turned-actress has made a mark for herself in showbiz and is proud of herself.
Summing up her journey, the 33-year-old said: "I am one of those really lucky actors. I have survived 10 years in this business and am still choosing the things that I want, still a regular household name, still making a lot of money."
If she takes credit for her achievements, she is equally open about owning up to her mistakes.
"There are peaks, there are valleys. I own up to my mistakes and I own my success completely. There is nobody who has helped me out ever. I feel very proud of myself," said the actress, who was recently seen in "Raaz 3", a horror film.
Bipasha has received positive response for "Raaz 3" and says appreciation has come her way after a long time.
Bipasha said: "I am nervous and anxious and excited. Appreciation pouring in is very humbling... I have got some fantastic reviews after a long time. I think it was much required at this point of time for me. It's a good feeling."
