Bollywood actor Bipasha Basu is all set to launch self-defense training centres for women in Mumbai, Delhi and Kolkata. One of the biggest fitness enthusiasts from Bollywood, Bipasha has often expressed her desire to train girls in self defence.

A Mid Day report quoted a source as saying, ”The girls will be trained in mixed martial arts and karate. Bipasha will host a special session towards the end of each course.” Confirming the news, Basu says, “The idea of starting this course was because I have always been particular about fitness. The working women of today need to be concerned about their health. These courses will teach them self-defense and keep them fit at the same time.”

Akshay Kumar already runs similar classes in Mumbai where young girls are taught self-defense and martial arts.

Bipasha had revealed her plans to help girls train in self-defense and fitness and said, “

Soon, I will be imparting more knowledge to people who want to get fit. It will be in the digital world because DVDs don’t really matter any more.”

Talking about her routine for a healthy life, Bipasha had earlier revealed, “When I am not working, I wake up at 8 am and get into bed again by 1pm and try to sleep by 12.30 am max. But when I’m working, I sometimes wake up at 4 am and train before I get to work at 7am.”

“I’m actually a very big foodie. But at the same time I believe in moderation and try to eat as many home-cooked meals as possible. I really like to eat out a lot but thankfully I have a partner who only likes eating at home. His good habits do rub off on me a bit. I try to limit eating sweets to only when I’m going out or meeting family, but it’s a constant battle. My home food is basically oats, eggs, juice (breakfast). For lunch its chicken, dal and sabji. And for dinner its dal and sabji again,” she added.
