Vishakha and the Mersal connection
The actress has developed a chat bot designed to help celebrities stay in touch with their fans, and the makers of Vijay's Mersal have taken to the idea
Vishakha Singh, in association with her partners based in Vienna, has developed the ICONICbot, designed to help celebrities stay in touch with their fans real time. She met Murali Ramawamy of Sri Thenandal Films, who's producing Vijay's upcoming venture, Mersal, recently. And they liked her idea.
"It's not an App, but a messenger platform. This Chatbox AI 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," says Vishakha.
The actress, who's currently busy with Fukrey 2, says she's in a happy space right now. "I have cut down a lot on my acting assignments. I wasn't happy with the roles I was getting. I have always been interested in business ventures. Here, I am the boss. I have control over what I do, unlike films," she smiles.
