Actor and fitness fanatic Bipasha Basu will begin shooting her first solo fitness DVD tomorrow. She says, “We have wrapped up rehearsals and pre-production. We will complete the shooting in one straight schedule by May 30.”
Two years ago, Bipasha had released the fitness DVD titled Love Yourself, along with Deanne Pandey, her fitness buddy of 17 years. Ask her why she decided to go solo this time around and she says, “After exercising and working out for the last few years, I have developed an affinity to health and fitness. The minute I enter the gym, I am jumping and laughing around. It acts as my stress buster and I want to share my endurance and stamina secrets and help make exercise fun for people.”
She plans to continue coming out with a series of fitness DVDs. “There is another one planned with Deanne this year,” she adds.
The actor has been burning the midnight oil writing a script for the exercise video. She says, “I am directing the video and have started enjoying writing for this project. I will also do the interviews and dubs for the package myself.”
Would she also consider doing a fitness TV show? Bipasha says, “We have been in talks for five years with different production houses, but I haven’t found someone with the same sync yet. However, I am open to new ideas.”
The actor, who has been practising her workouts at a suburban studio since the last fortnight, plans to release the video around the same time as her forthcoming horror film, Raaz 3. She says, “After a gig in Singapore, I leave for London for Singularity’s schedule. So I won’t be able to complete the DVD’s editing till I return.”
