Bipasha gets contact lenses
Leading Bollywood actor Bipasha Basu has finally got herself contact lens - to set right short-sightedness now that she has to host a July 7 event in Lisbon to announce the new Seven Wonders of the World.
"All these years I've avoided hosting any show or any event for the simple reason that I can't read the tele-prompter. I'm short sighted. Now history beckons me. And if I don't correct my vision now, history and my conscience would never forgive me," Bipasha said.
She said she has now corrected her vision.
"I've got myself contact lenses this week at the age of 28! All these years I stubbornly avoided it.
"But now when I was given the great privilege of hosting the event at Lisbon along with the likes of Ben Kingsley and Hillary Swank, I'd be foolish to not correct my eyesight. I can see everything so much clearly now..."
The actress says she is amazed that she has been chosen to host the show but added that it was a great honour for her.
"I don't know what made them choose me, maybe it was my appearance at Cannes last month. But I suddenly got a call from them. I'm deeply honoured and flattered. This is the first time since 200 B.C. that the 7 Wonders are being reconsidered. To be part of this is to be part of history," she said.
Bipasha will sport Armani and Rocky S outfits during the event. "It would be my dear friend Rocky S for the Indian outfit, and that's a saree. Armani will do my Western outfit, and destiny will take care of the rest."
