Bollywood actor Sunny Leone, who launched her own mobile app on Wednesday, said her app will ensure the right news about goes public but added that “media will gossip” about her anyway.
“I think media will gossip about me anyway, but through this app what I can do is filter information before going out in the public domain, so they are authentic,” Sunny said.
Asked about which actress should have a mobile app like the one she is launching, Sunny said: “I think Sonam Kapoor would be interesting to watch as she keeps traveling to different countries and exploring. However, I follow all the Bollywood stars on social media.”
“When it comes to actors, I think Ranveer Singh is very interesting, he is crazy, he is fun! He has a good sense of fashion and, at times, he wears whacky outfits too! So that’s gonna be entertaining,” she added.
The actress who launched her new mobile app in collaboration with New York-based start-up escapex said the app is one-stop shop for all her fans who can directly interact with her and meet her. It will open the door for her worldwide fans to her social media handles — be it Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or YouTube.
Sunny is the first ever-Indian celebrity to have such an app — escapex has produced white label apps for artists like Bob Marley, Wyclef Jean, and 35 other celebrities.
Emphasising on the impact of social media on an actors life, Sunny said: “As our shelf life is small, unlike Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, social media is one of the best ways to build up fan followers and one can write one’s own destiny.”
Asked if there were any specifications given while collaborating with the company, she said: “Yes, I will control all the information that will go out to my fans and there should not be any room for internal ranting!”
Being the first ever-Indian celebrity to have a mobile app and entering the e-commerce industry, when asked if she wishes to author another book, Sunny said: “Honestly, I haven’t thought much about it, I might just do that in future. I have so much to achieve.
“Right now, I am content and happy with the fact that I am able to do what I wanted to do. Since I am busy shooting a film called Tera Intezaar directed by Raajeev Walia opposite Arbaaz Khan, I am quite consumed in that.”
