TellyBuzz spoke to Gautam to know more about this idea of launching a website through which he will stay connected with the fans.
Gautam's motive to launch a website is to stay connected to his fans and let them know about his work. Talking about the same he said, "It's a website that will be presenting my professional work as well as connect me with my admirers. Everything will come under one roof. It's going to be a social hub where I'll be showcasing my work, interacting with my admirers. It's going to come under one roof where you can go on Twitter, Facebook as well and the main motive of this website is to bring me closer to my admirers so that we can know each other better. They can leave a message for me on the website to which I will respond directly to them."
We queried Gautam as who will be handling his accounts. He replied, "My Facebook and Twitter account will come under this website itself. I have seen 35 fake accounts of mine on Facebook. The idea of all this is to make the admirers connect to the right person and not to the fake ones. I will be handling all by myself. I will be taking out time to do it. Everything happens because of the love and support you get from the admirers. So, now I will be connecting myself to them directly."
Fans will be expecting instant revert from Gautam. So when we asked Gautam whether he will be able to reply to all of them or not, this is what Gautam said, "I will try my best to reply to everyone. I have thought of making a post informing them that I'll be online at this particular time so that they can come at that particular time to interact with me. The basic idea is connect with them as much as it will be possible and to know each other better. It's because of their liking and support, we all actors are here so it's better to connect with all of them."
Joining a social networking site has never been easy for actors as their accounts tend to get hacked easily. We quizzed Gautam about the security measures he has taken to keep his accounts safe and secured. He said, "My Facebook account will be verified. So, there will be no problem of hacking. One cannot hack a verified account."
Gautam will be soon flying to UK for his shoots and he is quite excited to meet his fans from abroad where his show is riding high and is quite successful. Telling us more about the same he said, "I will be going to London on 17th. I have to finish so many episodes right now to go there and that track will be telecasted little later. So, we have to finish coming episodes and we are trying our level best to finish it all soon. This show is loved by the UK audiences. We have got lots of warmth and support from them. I am excited to meet all of them and interact with them face to face like I did in October. I won't be able to do a city tour but after my shoots or maybe I will stay there for a few days and I will be interacting with them as much as possible. I am quite excited about it."
Giving a message to his fans regarding the launch of his website, Gautam concluded, "Just see the website and interact with me because it's basically because of you all that I have created this website so that we can know each other better."
