In a column he’s written today, Mahesh Bhatt speaks about shooting an emotional scene in Raaz 3, where Bipasha Basu continued weeping – long after the director had said “Cut!” According to Mahesh, this happens when “truth and fantasy collide, suddenly and unexpectedly, and the actor touches the nerve which perhaps they have been trying not to touch for so long.” Here’s what he said in his BT columm:

“Vikram Bhatt, the director, calls ‘Cut’. But Bipasha, the real woman, does not stop crying. She is beyond caring, far beyond any semblance of shame, or reality. She just weeps and weeps. The unit falls silent, unsure of what to do next. It is rare this moment, and actors seldom go there.”

According to Mahesh, Bipasha had become the woman who had burnt all bridges and needed to sink or swim. He believes Raaz 3 helped her heal, as it allowed her to tap into her reserves of pain and use that emotion to develop her character. Now, Mahesh believes that Bipasha has reached a new point in life where everyone will see that she is back.
