Bipasha Basu

Short Bio

Had it not been for a dissected rat, our film industry may never have had the sexy seductress lovingly known as Bips. The story goes that Bipasha always wanted to be a doctor and studied science till the 12th standard. However, after passing out while dissecting a rat, she changed her mind and decided to become a chartered accountant. Fortunately, for us, a chance meeting with Mehr Jessia in 1996 made her take part in the Godrej Cinthol Supermodel Contest. She won the contest, became a model and, soon after, entered the Hindi film industry.

In 1999, when Bipasha was still scorching up the ramps, she began dating fellow model Dino Morea. In 2001, she entered Bollywood playing the sexy Sonia in 'Ajnabee', and went on to win the Filmfare Best Female Debut award for it. Meanwhile, Dino and Bips continued to make a delectable couple and even appeared in Vikram Bhatt's 'Raaz' together in 2002. Soon after, however, they broke up.

That's when Bipasha found love in the arms of another gorgeous model turned actor - the absolutely adorable John Abraham! The beautiful pair appeared in many films and TV commercials together and despite many rumours of break-ups and tiffs (Bipasha kissing Manchester United footballer Cristiano Ronaldo, John's alleged affair with Vidya Balan) continue to be committed to each other.
