I don’t know why because I had done an entire world tour with Bipasha and we got along well. I was totally civil to her. I had also done a film with Lara called Elaan with her and I was very polite to her throughout the filming.” 

For the unversed, Ameesha had said that she would have never gotten the permission (from her family, especially her grandmother) to do a role similar to what Bipasha Basu had performed in Jism.

And what are you going to say when you come on the show next week?’ And I said ‘nothing. I have nothing to say I’m gonna say no comment. Person has a view. They have a view I have none.’ So he was like, ‘Oh, your typical Polish South Bombay manners’. I said, ‘Yeah, because that’s me’.”
