Bipasha Basu’s Love For Italy And Italians

Bollywood bombshell Bipasha Basu has always had a soft corner for Italy. While she had holidayed there in the past, recently she was there for the shoot of Bachna Ae Haseeno. Bipasha,who is currently shooting for an ad, talks about her Italian eperience, “Rome and Capri are beautiful cities. Last time, I was here on holiday, this time it was for work. Both were trips to remember. I had so much fun we visited the Vatican, Cherry Fountain, the Lion Fountain at Piazza Del Poppolo, the Colloseum in Rome and many other places.”

She says, “I shopped very little. Apart from the fact that Rome is extremely expensive, I have been going easy on what I call my ‘fizul kharcha’.

Apart from that, Bipasha finds the people of Rome very friendly. “The people are wonderful and warm. And they dress impeccably. Italians are very fashionable.”

Bipasha is also a big fan of the Italian cooking, “Nothing beats pizza, pasta and sea food in Italian cuisine. Their fish and shrimps are fantastic. Of course, I had an interesting experience too. I had to go in for a root canal and was extremely apprehensive about doing it in Rome. I didn’t know the doctor there and he didn’t understand a word of English but the operation went off well. He was one of the best dentists of Rome.” Source
