Here to launch a boutique store of watch brand Sieko, Bipasha was welcomed to the venue by loud cheers from the crowd as she walked in looking smart and pretty in pants and a coat.
"Time is the biggest luxury. I have been working from the age of 15. . . I have been working for a long time, so I love a disciplined life and for that, you need a great time piece.
"A time piece which not just keeps you on time, but looks good and stylish as well. . . Something that just complements you. So, a time piece is definitely important for my life, " Bipasha told IANS.
Asked if she believes in punctuality, a factor which tends to be an issue with most of the celebrities, the "Alone" actress shared: "I am extremely punctual. My team sometimes has to tell me a half an hour late time. . . I have to wait.
"I never changed. In my second film 'Raaz', I used to come half an hour earlier. I used to reach early and sleep in the car outside the studio because they would not even open the gate until then. "
