Bipasha Basu to launch her
By Subhash K. Jha,
Mumbai, Nov 22 Bipasha Basu has found herself a new
source of excitement - a website of her own with regular
updates on her life.
Bipasha, who is as excited as she was when she signed her
first film, says: "It will be maintained entirely by me. And it
will have regular, almost daily updates of my life... my ideas,
thoughts, observations, things that I want to share with my
audience. Not that I'll stop being media-friendly. I'm too media
savvy to give up interacting in print. But yes, sometimes I do
feel my words and thoughts don't reach my fans the way they are
meant to. .
"The need to express myself directly... was there within me. It
will have everything about me -- pictures of my family, jottings
from my diary, everything that people wanted to know about me
but didn't know where to look."
Bipasha intends to update the website daily even though
her schedules might come in the way.
"I also intend to invite friends to write columns on my website.
The interactive element will be really high. I'm made out to be
this serious person when in fact I'm a fun person. I want to
share my sense of fun with the people out there. I want to give
them a chance to ask me anything I like."
A unique aspect of Bipasha's website would be an auction
site. "Every month, I'll give away my stuff and the proceeds
will go directly to the Make A Wish foundation, which I've been
associated with for two years."
She's supercharged with the idea and declares her laptop to be
her best friend. "On second thoughts, Susanne (Roshan) is my
best friend. John? He can never be my best friend. He's my
boyfriend. I intend to pore over the laptop between shots. So no
more faffing on the sets.".
