Bipasha Basu, was born on January 7, 1979
She is a Bollywood actress and a Supermodel. She is the winner of the Ford Supermodel of the World contest and now works in mainstream Bollywood films. Her first name means "Deep, dark desire." She is continually listed as one of Asia's sexiest women, along with fellow stars Mallika Sherawat and Aishwarya Rai.
Bipasha is the second of three daughters in her family. Her family consists of her mother, her father, her elder sister Bidisha, and her younger sister Bijoyeta. She was born in New Delhi. Later her family moved to Kolkata where she studied for a business degree. In an interview, she said that she had come into modelling and acting "quite by accident". She had planned to learn chartered accountancy or study medicine. She said that she dropped the idea of doing medical studies because she fainted when attempting to dissect rats. As a child she was considered ugly because of her dark skin.
Basu dated Dino Morea before dumping him for her successful Jism co-star John Abraham. Abraham and Basu are now rumoured to be engaged Even though Basu is a practicing Hindu and Abraham a Christian, both families have accepted the couple. Basu has stated in an interview that even though she was raised a Hindu, she believes that "God is everywhere, in every religion" and a fact everyone must accept. She also stated that all religious groups deserve respect.
Basu has been romantically linked with Vivek Oberoi and Abhishek Bachchan, who are both, coincidentally, former and current beaus of Aishwarya Rai.
Bipasha won the Ford Supermodel of the World contest at the age of seventeen; she was also named Tulips Miss Super Vivacious. She worked as a model before she was signed for her first film.
Of late, many Indian models have turned from modeling to acting; Bipasha has been one of the most successful model-turned-actresses.
Bipasha's debut film Ajnabee (2001) was fairly successful and she was soon signed for other movies. She attracted attention with her roles in Raaz (2002) and Jism (2003). Jism featured more mature content than had previously been customary in Bollywood; it was a success and Bipasha was afterwards marketed as a sex symbol. In 2005, she had a boundary-pushing role in the successful film No Entry. She later appeared in the 2006 film Phir Hera Pheri, which did well at the box office. Basu was the female lead in Corporate, she received much acclaim for her performance.
Dhoom 2 is her latest release with Yash Raj Films, which was a huge hit overseas and in India.
She has also appeared in music videos, such as Tu Kab Ye Janegi... for Sonu Nigam’s album, Kismat and in Jay Sean's Stolen.
