When Aman Parekh wanted to wish his mother on her 62nd birthday, he reached out to actor Rajesh Kumar (aka Rosesh Sarabhai from the TV show Sarabhai vs Sarabhai) to convey the message. Kumar shot a video message in his character’s signature drawl, and packed a quirky poem before mailing it to her. That the sexagenarian has been a huge fan of the show, and particularly of Rajesh’s character, it is a memory she will cherish forever. Aman managed to make his mother’s special day extra special through Celebyte, an online platform that connects fans to their favourite celebrities and provides fans to engage with their idols over text video message or video call for a price, ofcourse. A part of media and entertainment tech startup Armsprime Media, founded by Saurabh Kushwah, Sanjay Tripathy and Aditya Save, Celebyte.com is one of the fastest-growing online platforms that connect fans to celebrities. The platform already has over 2250+ celebrities that include Saina Nehwal, Salim Merchant, Robin Uthappa, Sandip Soparrkar, Sharman Joshi, Jay Bhanushali, Shakti Kapoor, Minissha Lamba among others. Fans can connect and get access to their favourite celebrities through video calls and chat or request video messages for their near and dear ones for special occasions or even as a regular day surprise. “We are trying to disrupt the digital gifting space by making gifting a personalised experience. Fans want access and celebrities want to monetise their interactions. We try to cater to both while ensuring the experience is seamless,” says Sanjay Tripathy, Co-founder and CEO of Armsprime Media.
