Famous for: Bipasha Basu is best known for her acting career (as major female Bollywood star), despite the fact that she was a quite successful model prior to her film career.
No matter how heroine-oriented my roles are, everyone just sees the glamour. After all that effort, all people see is that I look attractive…
An unforgettable experience happened on December 15, 1996 when I won the Supermodel contest while still in high school. I was just seventeen years old then. Winning that competition was the turning point of my life. That’s how I got into modeling and later started acting.
I have visited Paris only once. I wasn’t romantically attached at the time. But the love I received in Paris is something I will never forget. It’s a place every woman should visit, while she’s young.
Once you enter films, your private life becomes a joke.
Bipasha means “Dark Deep Desire” (it is also the name of a river).
In 1996 Basu was the winner of the Ford’s Godrej Cinthol Supermodel contest which marked the beginning of her modeling career.
In 2001 Basu made her film debut in Abbas Mustan’s film Ajnabee (Bipasha won the Filmfare Best Female Debut Award for her performance).
The UK magazine Eastern Eye named Basu the “Most Attractive Woman in Asia” in 2005 and 2007.
Basu in one sentence – Bipasha is a gorgeous and intelligent woman with a charming personality.
Always remember that true beauty comes from within.
