MUMBAI: Actor Bipasha Basu, who has featured in horror films like Raaz and Alone, says productions in the genre need to be encouraged. “I don’t like to follow the norm — the typical way of doing things. I’ve never done it and I like to be a little unpredictable. But the only predictability in my case has been that I am still supporting and encouraging a genre [horror] which still hasn’t got its due respect.”

Horror is a genre which is still experimental but very exciting so I am supporting what she I am good at, Bipasha said regarding her horror TV show Darr Sabko Lagta Hai.

Why did she choose horror to begin her journey on television? “I didn’t want to do the predictable dance and music reality shows that although are also fun to see. I think this (horror) is right up my alley, it’s my home turf… and it’s a genre which needs promotion,” she added.

Bipasha will be playing herself in the show and her part has been directed by Go Goa Gone directors Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK. About Darr Sabko Lagta Hai, she said: “It has a very modern and contemporary take on horror. It’s not something that you’ve seen — the style of shooting, the directors who have been roped in to make these short films… everything is very new-age.”

About her shift from films to TV, she said, “TV is a very big medium. From Shah Rukh Khan to Amitabh Bachchan to Salman Khan, everybody is on television. So why should the actresses lag behind?”.
