Vishakha Singh, in association with her partners based in Vienna, has developed the ICONICbot, designed to help celebrities stay in touch with their fans. She met Murali Ramawamy of Sri Thenandal Films, who’s producing Vijay’s upcoming venture, Mersal, recently with a proposition for an App, which was accepted immediately.
“It’s not really an App, but a messenger platform. This Chatbox Al on Facebook messenger lets actors send personalised posters to fans. Say, an actor has a fan page on Facebook... He can interact with fans personally, and the interactions will be private. This is India’s first multi-lingual chat box for the entertainment industry.”
The actress, who’s currently busy with Fukrey 2, says she’s in a happy space. “I have cut down on my acting. I wasn’t happy with the roles I was getting. I have always been interested in business. Here, I am the boss. I have control over what I do,” she smiles.
