Fans are always ready to do anything to have an interaction with their favorite stars. It's going to be a treat for the fans of actor Romit Raj who is seen as Varun in Sony TV's popular show Adaalat, to interact with him for a cause.
Romit has initiated a fan interaction session in which his fans will have to pay an amount to interact with him on Skype and the collected funds will go to the charity firm with which he is actively associated with. TellyBuzz spoke to Romit to know more about this noble cause.
When asked Romit about how did he come up with this idea, he says, "I just felt that today because of the digitalization and technology, everything is reaching to the consumers at home. Technology is fast paced nowadays so we get everything at our home very conveniently. So, I thought that if I will get an opportunity to talk with my favorite star online then it will be a qualitative opportunity for me and I don't mind paying a price for it. So, I felt that being in this industry from past 10 years and already being connected with everyone through Twitter and Facebook, why not involve everyone for a good cause? I have been associated with Vipassana and Muskaan foundation from the past few years. I thought that we can use this platform to raise funds for this charity and support people for their education."
So how do fans get to interact with Romit, "I have already created a Gmail account which is: firstname.lastname@example.org. I thought to involve my fans for a good cause as well so, they can write to me at this email id and I will exchange Skype login names with them and give them time. I will come online on Skype for 5-10 mins. On the specified time, my fans can have an interaction with me. The money will be forwarded to Muskaan Foundation or Vipassana Foundation. I feel that one should not tell people when doing a charity. I have never talked about the charity. I have done over the years and I won't do it further also. I want to let people know that it's a one way of raising money for charity rather than making money. Fans will have to pay 1000 Rs. /5 minutes to have an interaction with me," says Romit.
On being asked Romit about how will he manage to do this along with his busy shoot schedules, he says, "Generally I don't shoot on Sundays or if I will get a week day off then I will check the number of people enrolling to have a chat with me and I will mail them accordingly."
Romit has been associated with the charity organizations earlier as well and says, "It's always better not to say about the charities a person is involving in it. The only reason that people got to know that I have adopted a girl child 6 years back and I am support an NGO Muskaan is to encourage people that it's never too early to adopt a child. If we want to make a difference then today is the right day to start. Whatever I am today is all because of the people who have helped me. So, we should help other people as well. We should make this place a better place to live, do good work and support each other."
"I have already formed my E-mail account and I already have my Skype account which is functional. My staff will interact with the fans and get all the things arranged. I will come online on Skype on the designated time to have an interaction with them," concludes Romit.
