Bipasha Basu has maintained that she doesn’t want to do anything with the promotion of Humshakals. This was also one of the reasons why she kept away from the promotions of the movie in every form including in the popular TV show, ‘Comedy Nights with Kapil’. There were allegations that Bipasha’s role was reduced and was paid less than co-actresses like Tamanna and Esha Gupta. The actress however decided to clear the air with her statement on Twitter-
“This is to put an end to all the discussions around my absence for Humshakals promotions. I take full responsibility of getting into a film only on the basis of trust. But after dubbing for my character in the film, as I had professionally committed to do so I’m extremely disturbed by the end result of the same.
In these circumstances I didn’t know how to promote a film with all honesty and that’s why I thought it was better to stay away. I am confident that the film will be true to its genre and will be a full entertainer because of the people involved. I wish fox star studios who I have had my biggest hit with Raaz 3 and Vashu ji who is a fantastic producer all the best. Wish all my co stars Saif, Riteish, Tamannah, Esha and the technicians best of luck. Sometimes, certain journeys cannot be completed and this is one of them – no one to be blamed, combination of things that made me disrupt my journey”
