String of consecutive releases (mid 2002-2004) Bipasha Basu then went on to star in the romcom Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai which was only a mediocre outing after which she went on to be a part of many forgettable flicks like Chor Machaaye Shor , Gunaah and also made a unfruitful detour to Telugu cinema with Mahesh Babu’s action entertainer Takkari Donga, all in the year 2002. She got some respite in the year 2003 when she was cast in Pooja Bhatt’s erotic thriller Jism , where she portrayed a cunning wife of a millionaire who plots her own husband’s death. John Abraham and Bipasha shared a good onscreen chemistry and the movie panned out to be a hit among the critics and movie goers simultaneously, thus ensuring her some quality breathing space with her second character with negative shades and she was touted to be the backbone of the movie.
