Bollywood's dusky beauty Bipasha Basu will be celebrating her 33rd birthday today.
Bipasha Basu was born to a Bengali Hindu family in New Delhi. She was born on 7th January 1979 to Hirak Basu and Mamata Basu. She won the Godrej Cinthol Supermodel Contest in 1996, at the tender age of 17. She soon became a model with the prestigious Ford Modelling Agency. Bipasha started out as a supermodel before scorching the big screen with her sultry personality.
Bipasha made her film debut in Abbas Mustan’s "Ajnabee" with Akshay Kumar, Bobby Deol and Kareena Kapoor. It was followed next year by the success of "Raaz", a thriller directed by Vikram Bhatt. The following year she again made waves in "Jism", in which she played a scheming seductress, opposite her boyfriend, John Abraham.
The year 2004 could be easily called Bipasha’s worst year as she had string of films that sunk at the box-office. Next year though her films "No Entry" and "Phir Hera Pheri" did well at the box-office. 2006 was Bipasha’s year all the way with good films like "Corporate", "Omkara", and "Dhoom 2" to her credit. Her brilliant portrayal of Nishigandha Dasgupta in Madhur Bhandarkar’s Corporate won her a nomination for the Filmfare Best Actress Award. She sizzled in the item number ‘Beedi’ in "Omkara". In 2008, Bipasha had another hit in her kitty with "Race" while her performance in "Bachna Ae Haseeno" was appreciated.
In 2009, her first release of the year was, "Aa Dekhen Zara", with Neil Nitin Mukesh. The film was a flop. She was next seen in "All The Best" along with Ajay Devgan. 2010 saw Bipasha in the experimental film, "Pankh", the Bengali film Shob Charitro Kalponik, and "Lamhaa" with Sanjay Dutt.
Her last release "Dum Maro Dum" was a hit at the box office and her role in the film was very well received by the audiences.
Currently, she has under her arms films like "Jodi Breakers’", "Singularity", "Raaz 3D", "Raaz 2"
