Bipasha: Love is my biggest priority right now

R madhavan and Bipasha BasuBipasha Basu and costar R Madhavan joined music composers Salim-Sulaiman and actor Omi Vaidya to launch thier film's music at West Inn in Goregaon, a western Mumbai suburb.

While playback singers Shafqat Amanat Ali, Shradh Pandit, Benny Dayal and Shilpa Rao sang songs from the film, other members of the film's cast -- Dipannita Sharma, Milind Soman and Mrinalini Sharma -- joined in with an impromptu jig.

But it was only when Bipasha Basu -- looking sensuous in a light-coloured sari -- walked in to the tune of her song titled Bipasha -- when things took a turn for the better.

When asked what true love means to her, newly-single Bipasha promptly said it means everything. "Love is my biggest priority right now. And it is not only looking for a partner, but love for and from everyone right from family members to friends and co-stars," she said with a smile.

"I am single now and enjoying all the attention," she added. 

Since her split with longtime beau John Abraham last year, the actress has been linked with several costars including Rana Daggubati and Hollywood actor Josh Hartnett.

When asked who would be her ideal man like, she said, "He just has to be like Madhavan. He is a fabulous actor, a good human being and a great friend. He is into adventure sports, he likes to travel, he loves eating good food, has a great taste in movies and music; he just is the right person."

Madhavan returned the compliment. He said, "I thought of Bipasha as this exotically beautiful actress who carried the superstar persona throughout. I was relieved to find that she was so kind at heart and friendly. We got along so well."
