After playing versatile roles in her filmy career, Bipasha Basu is all set to play a terrorist in Bunty Walia’s Lamhaa. According to a source, "Bipasha plays Aziza, a sturdy leader of a women’s group in Srinagar. They are the moral police and repress any act that is considered unorthodox by the separatist. As part of her duties, Aziza is taught how to use guns and is also trained in hand-to-hand combat ever since her childhood."
To maintain suspense, the producer of the film was reluctant to reveal Bips’s role. But now the suspense is disclosed and her role came into forefront. When quizzed about her role in the film, Bipasha said, "I play a young girl who has been manipulated by the person, who brings her up. Aziza believes she’s been trained in the right way, but later she undergoes a major transformation in the way she thinks."
However, producer Bunty Walia said, "Bipasha doesn’t play a terrorist. She has been brought up by a separatist leader Haji Baba (Anupam Kher) and follows his ideology.
Sanjay Dutt also plays a pivotal role in the film. At first Bunty thought to arrange a special screening for the CM of Jammu and Kashmir but looking at the turbulence in the state, he has dropped the idea.
