India, it seems, has got its own Jennifer Lopez. Actor Neha Dhupia recently revealed that she too got an offer to get her butt insured. “I did get the offer from the same American company that insured Jennifer Lopez’s butt,” she confirms. However, the 31-year-old actor remained tight-lipped on whether she has accepted the offer.
Dhupia, who plans to launch her line of lingerie and shoes online, says, “I’ve always felt that shoppers are extremely shy when it comes to buying lingerie. So I wanted to give them an option of picking up stuff without inhibition. I always buy shoes and lingerie on my trips abroad but everyone can’t do that. For some buying online from the comfort of their home is a better option.”
On being asked why she chose the online space to showcase her designs, Dhupia says, “E-commerce interests me as it has a lot of scope. So I decided to venture into that space.”
Dhupia, who was in the Capital recently for the launch of a book titled Mahavastu Handbook, also spoke about her inclination towards vaastu shastra. “I didn’t believe in such things earlier, but I would want to explore it now,” she adds.
The But Connect
Actor John Abraham, who flashed his butt in yellow boxers for the movie Dostana (2008), had got an offer to insure his derriere from the same company for Rs 10 crore. It’s a common trend in the West. However, in India it was actor Rajinikant who started the trend by reportedly getting his voice insured.
