Much like actor Anil Kapoor, the sultry Bipasha Basu will soon star in a new TV mini series, The Client. The actress, who was last seen with Karan Singh Grover in Alone, will reportedly essay a fierce and competitive character in the show.
As reported by DNA, filmmaker Rohan Sippy's mini series is a rip-off of the international show, Scandal. Bipasha will enact the role of Olivia Pope, originally brought alive by Kerry Washington in Scandal. Produced by Eros Now, The Client will be a 12 part series. Shooting will commence in October.

It's a web series (based on the Netflix model) on the lines of Scandal where Bipasha plays a top-notch political fixer - a powerful go-getter, who is in Delhi. She's a woman in the dirty, murky world of men, intrigue and politics and is at the top of her game. Bips' character is sharp, sexy and highly intelligent, someone who will do anything to make things happen at the highest echelons of power. Bipasha will be styled in formal suits and sexy dresses (similar to Olivia Pope)
Apart from Bipasha Basu, several other prominent faces from TV and Bollywood are likely to be roped in as well.
