Bipasha Basu is known to be extremely close to her family. The actress, who has a 55-day upcoming shoot schedule coming up in Ooty, apparently wants her family to pay her a visit to rescue her from the clutches of loneliness in the Nilgiri hills.
A source says, “Bips has a long schedule coming up without any break. Just thinking about missing her family has already made her homesick. She will be shooting non-stop without her friends and family for company. She has asked them to visit her in Ooty one by one.”
During her stay in Mumbai, the actress is known to fly down to Kolkata quite often to see her family.
The source adds, “She has also packed a lot of books and DVDs to take with her to pass time.”
Says Bipasha, “I am stocking up on scripts and my favourite TV series and movies for the next 60 days. It is the longest outdoor schedule I have ever had.”
Not without my gym
A fitness freak, Bipasha has also asked the makers of the film to recreate a portable mini gym for her in Ooty. Apparently she does not want to give her exercise regime a miss.
