In an industry that typically sidelines actresses as they age, Bipasha Basu has reinvented herself, going from sex symbol to the queen of Bollywood horror movies, a genre that most mainstream stars avoid. Basu, 36, has found success in several horror films in recent years. Basu’s latest is a remake of the Thai film "Alone," about a woman whose dead twin comes back to haunt her and her husband. She spoke to Reuters about the film, why she does horror, and her worst fear in real life.

On Thursday, the mining and metals company Freeport-McMoRan filed the long-awaited settlement of shareholder claims in Delaware Chancery Court that it overpaid for two affiliates whose 2013 acquisition was tainted by directors' conflict of interest. Freeport agreed to pay $137.5 million, $115 million of which will come from its insurers. That's the third-biggest-ever cash payout in a derivative settlement, behind the record-setting $275 million Activision Blizzard deal last November and the $139 million News Corp settlement in 2013.
