Bipasha says she always motivates everyone around her to stay healthy and exercise. She started working out seriously six years ago, and says she wants to share her experience and that's why she made the DVD. She says she's been working hard at it. "Films, fitness and fashion are my passions," she says, "this is the first time that I will be doing something professional for the latter two. The focus is on health, and it has a scientific approach."

"It is very compact, targeting people who are busy, who don’t like to go to the gym or don’t have time,” says the actress.

“It is entirely my baby, from the script to shooting it, the camera angles and lighting. But I did have fitness expert Deanne Pandey on board when the initial groundwork was done. He is my dear friend,” she adds.

Watching Bipasha playing a fitness guru is incentive enough, but the video has some more stardust sprinkled all over. It has Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, John Abraham, M.S. Dhoni, Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgan and Ranbir Kapoor too
sharing their fitness tips.

What's more, the DVD has a song called Baby Love Yourself directed by Soham Shah. Well, burning those extra calories just got even more sexy. Buy Now >>

Bipasha Speaks:

The entire concept of the workout was thought up by Bipasha herself as, she says, she wants to sell something she believes in.

It's been a lot of hard work and effort for me. I love working out but sometimes I can't pull out one hour of exercising. The video is for those who are too shy to go to the gym or can't afford it or like working mothers who are struggling with time. It's not some Bollywood actress's pastime. It is my baby and completely my effort. Everything from the creatives to choosing the right pictures, post-production, marketing and script has been mine. It's a brand initiative. The DVD won't be just a one-step video. I will be getting involved in the entire brand of fitness -- from fashion to food. I have several plans. Love yourself' is my philosophy in life, hence the brand's name. It is not a narcissist attitude (to use her initials) because I truly believe that we all must love ourselves before we set out to achieve anything, whether it’s a work goal or a relationship, and the first step here is to get fit, as everyone wants to look good.
Tell me about the fitness video.

It gives you a 25-minute workout and has a beginners level for 30 days and advanced level for 30 days. People should do the workout that helps in fat loss and muscle toning six times a week. It will take about three days to understand the form. Since I can't monitor people personally, the workouts differs from individual to individual, but it's important that they also follow a balanced and moderate diet with vitamins, minerals, carbs and proteins. You can't have fried stuff and expect miracles in 30 days. I will also be having the launch of the video website soon.

You have been working on this for the last few months?

The beginners level took some time as I had to do with others. It took me eight months of research and trying the workouts on different people to see the results. I want to thank people who encouraged me when I shared the idea with them, and then made this video possible. When I told John, he was blown away by the concept. My friend Deanne Pandey, a fitness expert was also a big help. Rocky S has done my music video and so, many friends have contributed free of cost. Big stars like Mr Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh, Priyanka, John, Dhoni, Akshay, Ajay and Ranbir Kapoor have endorsed the video.

There's a song in the video too!

Yes. It's called Baby Love Yourself and has been directed by Soham Shah. It's a philosophy I have been following for the last six years. I love the 5 F's in my life -- films, fitness, fashion, family and friends but the emphasis is on loving
yourself. I am releasing it a week before Valentine's Day because it's about loving yourself and on that day we love others but we tend to lose focus on ourselves. After the release of my first one, I plan to have new ones with updated techniques maybe coming every six months.

Is it affordable?

Yes, because I am looking at the masses and classes. It's a bilingual -- Hindi and English as I want people at the grass root level to get it. The DVD is cost effective and if someone can't afford it they can buy the VCD. I will also be launching my own fitness line. Outfits for working out can be very fashionable, sexy and be the right gear. The BB Love Yourself line will launched in March. People are confused about what is thin and being fit -- it's about being fit and being able to a million things in a day without fainting.
