Bipasha Basu Ready for Her Television Debut
The Bong Bombshell, Bipasha Basu had remained a hot favourite of Bollywood. Her last film was Aatma and she played the role of a terrified mother fighting supernatural forces. Now, her career is going to follow the illustrious path carved by other Bollywood megastars like Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan. Bips will soon be seen on the small screen of television.
Rumours regarding the television debut of the dusky diva surfaced four years ago, but nothing came of it at that time. However, this time it is confirmed. Bipasha is ready to launch her career in television. She will be appearing in the Indian counterpart of the popular show America’s Next Top Model. This show used to be anchored by the famous model Tyra Banks. The Indian version is going to be hosted by Bipasha. In addition to hosting, she also plays a part in the team who will be grooming and instructing the budding models.
A lot of excitement is building up both around the show and its glamorous anchor. According to a source, “Bipasha will be the mentor and will be part of the grooming and motivation sessions for the aspiring models. She will be part of the entire show and auditions of the models have already started.” It is being said that Bipasha will guide the contestants. She will give them valuable grooming tips as well as help with their cat walking skills. It now remains to be seen whether Bipasha manages to enjoy the wild success that has come to other stars like Amitabh Bachchan and Salman Khan during their career on the small screen.
“The shooting is likely to begin in August and will continue for about three months,” the source added.
While Bipasha remains a hot star of the silver screen, she has branched off in a number of directions in recent times. She recently launched her own fitness DVD which is wildly successful. She is now waiting for the release of her English film, Singularity. In the meantime, Bipasha is also busy with her shooting of Bollywood film, Creature. Her television program will now have to be accommodated into this routine.
The new reality show hosted by Bipasha will definitely attract a lot of attention, because of the beautiful anchor as well as the glamorous concept. It just remains to wish the diva best of luck in her chosen show.
