Bipasha Basu arrived in London with her husband Karan for the India Pakistan London Fashion Show. She was supposed to be the showstopper for the grand finale curated by London-based designers Lubna and Uzma Rafiq to promote three distinct cultures -British, Indian and Pakistani. Javed Sheikh was also walking the ramp with her and they both had to interact with the media after the show.
But few hours before the show, Bipasha refused to come out of her hotel room or speak to anybody. When her manager who was accompanying her tried to convince her to step out, she abused her and threw her out of the room, and also insulted London-based Gurbani Kaur, the founder and organiser of the show, slamming the door on her face.
Ronita Sharma, who was responsible to bring the Indian beauty to the event said,
“While still in India, Sana told us that Bipasha wanted her husband Karan to fly out to London with her and her stay be extended to five nights. We had already booked rooms at Mayfair but since there were no rooms available after she extended her stay, we shifted her to the Montcalm Hotel, another five-star property which cost us 600 pounds per night. All her requirements were taken care of and an advance fee was paid. Within minutes of landing in London, we handed her two local SIM cards which she literally threw back on my face because it only had a five pound recharge. There were around 20 people watching us, including the chauffeurs. The tantrums got worse once Bipasha reached the hotel.”
Five hours later when Bipasha came out of her room with her husband, she didn’t even meet anyone not even her manager and ran away to explore the streets of London. The show took place without her and the organizers were extremely angry on her unprofessional behavior. They have filed a case against Bipasha and requested the visa and immigration center to ban her for working in the UK in future.
