Bipasha going International?? Pankh movie stills Bipasha's Hollywood project is going nowhere.

".....Bipasha’s dream of going international has come to a standstill, at least for now."

But now Bipasha in a British television show?

"During a recent trip to the UK, Bipasha met the organisers of the show who asked her to be a part of the reality programme."

"...Bipasha Basu's presence on the show is to get the asian viewers of UK to watch the show. The organisers thought Bipasha is the perfect person to boost the show's popularity amongst asian viewers."

Even though I've tweeted about a possibility of Bipasha on a desi version of ANTM, here's some 411.

Bipasha to host Indian version of reality show ‘Top Model’
"A huge hit in US, the show that is aired on Zee Café, has gained a lot of popularity in India and has one of the highest TRPs. As per reports, though Bips is yet to give her final nod, buzz has it that she has more of less agreed to present the show."

Bipasha is hunting for a top female Model!
"Who could be a better choice than the sultry and dusky Bipasha Basu to host a show to select the best female model. Shah Rukh’s production house Red Chillies Entertainment is getting ready to produce a reality show."

The dusky babe is all set to host a show for SRK!
"The hunt is on for India’s next supermodel and who else than the sassy Bipasha Basu to host the show. The Indian version of America’s Next Top Model will soon hit the small screen and it’s none other than Shahrukh Khan who is producing it. "

Now, how come SRK and Bips haven't been paired in a film together yet??? Bips guest appearance in the "Phir Milenge Chalte Chalte" song from Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi doesn't count. Of course, all of this is still gossip-news. But just had to share that.

bana_nnie and I have tweeted about the possibility of this happening. She mentioned she's surprised there hasn't been a desi version of ANTM.

We even started to cast who should be the judges, hahaha.

Replace Tyra, add Bips. Tyra is too over-the-top and annoying. Bips is honest, humble, and would be a great host. Love her husky voice.

Need a former model as a judge, why not Sushmita Sen? The former beauty queen and India's first Miss Universe would be an excellent choice. She is honest and could give good criticism.

A photographer! bana_nnie suggested Dabboo Ratani. However, I immediately thought of John Abraham's younger brother, Alan. I think Dabboo will be too busy for this. Alan is great. Check out his work
. He has even photographed some of John's pictures.

Couldn't think of a third judge...but it was just fun casting :)

edited - bana_nnie and I were just tweeting each other about a 3rd judge. I was wondering about a model who could rock the catwalk. She mentioned Mehr Jesica. I'm for her. I like her. S he's Arjun Rampal's wife and former Miss India.

Imagine - ANTM India style
Host - Bipasha Basu
Sushmita Sen
Mehr Jesica
Alan Abraham

That would be awesome!!!

In the meantime, besides Bips' Bengali film, Shob Charitro Kalponik aka Afterword that I'm anxiously waiting for. Watch out for her in Pankh, which has been soooo long in the making.

If you haven't heard about it, the film is about gender confusion. There has been rumors that the film is based on Ashish Channa. She is a female child star who often plays boy roles in films like Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna, Vaastu Shastra, & My Friend Ganesha. Bips plays herself and exists in the main character's mind.

Pankh is finally set to fly — with September 11 seeing an all-India release of the film.

Here are stills from Pankh....
