Bipasha Basu, who was last seen in MX Player’s Dangerous in 2020, has been away from Bollywood since 2015. However, she was among the top female stars in the 2000s and fans miss her on the silver screen.
At the time, she acted in several hits including Raaz, No Entry, Phir Hera Pheri, Corporate, Dhoom 2 and Race. Even her dance numbers like Beedi Jalaile, Namak Ishq Ka, Bipasha Bipasha and Billo Rani are still popular with moviegoers.
While Bipasha is currently focusing on her personal life and expecting her first child with hubby Karan Singh Grover, stand-up comedian and writer Sumaira Shaikh recently compared her to Disha Patani.
She took to social media and declared that Bipasha is the ‘Disha Patani of the 2000s’. She tweeted, “Bipasha Basu is early 2000s Disha Patani.”
Check out her message below:

While she must have compared Bipasha and Disha due to their image of hot divas, Reddit users are not happy with her statement at all.
A Reddit user recently shared Sumaira’s tweet on the platform. Other users are now sharing their opinion about it saying that it is “disrespect” for Bipasha who once made it to the top with her hard work and is a much better actress than Disha.
A Reddit user commented on this and wrote, “Lol As if anyone will offer Disha women oriented movies like Corporate, Raaz or Jism. Also Bipasha was THE craze for beedi in Omkara. Dish has never come close.”
Another user commented, “Bipasha was a household name in the horror/thriller space with many hits like Raaz/Jism. Even her songs are iconic, unlike Disha. Unfortunately, she completely squandered her hype and hasn’t even established herself as dancer, even though she can dance well. I feel like she is either not ambitious enough or not getting projects that can elevate her. Anyway, not comparable to Bipasha in any way.”
A third comment read: “Twitter access hai toh kuch bhi likhna hai kya?”
These are the responses:
We wonder how Bipasha and Disha would react to it.
For the inexperienced, Bipasha entered Bollywood with Abbas-Mustan’s 2001 hit Ajnabee and established herself among the top female stars in 2006 after the back-to-back hits. However, after the release of Raaz 3 in 2012, her career went downhill with the failure of her films.
In 2016, she tied the knot with Karan and has since left Bollywood. Well, we hope she returns to film after welcoming her baby.
On the other hand, Disha’s first Hindi movie was MS Dhoni: The Untold Story which was released in 2016. She later acted in Baaghi 2, Bharat, Malang, Radhe, and recently appeared in Ek Villain Returns. Her lineup includes biggies like Yodha and Project K.
