Bipasha Basu, happy birthday!

The Bong bombshell turns 35 today

Born on January 7, 1979, Bipasha Basu was a model before she entered Bollywood. Basu started modeling at 17 with her ex-boyfriend Dino Morea. She appeared in various endorsements and music videos. Bipasha made her debut in the industry with Abbas-Mustan’s Ajnabee opposite Akshay Kumar in a negative role. Though the film received rave reviews, the Bong bombshell won a lot of awards for her performance in the film.

After Ajnabee, Bipasha did Vikram Bhatt’s Raaz opposite Dino Morea which turned out to be one of the most successful films of 2002. After Raaz, she got recognition and did a number of films such as Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai, Chor Machaaye Shor and Gunaah. Following this, in 2003, Bips delivered Jism opposite her then boyfriend John Abraham which won her awards for her negative role and also earned her the tag of a sex goddess.

Post Jism, the actor appeared in numerous films like Zameen, Rudraksh, Aetbaar, Madhoshi, Rakht, Viruddh and Barsaat which did not fare too well at the box office. She was back in the groove with No Entry, Corporate, Omkara, Dhoom:2, Bachna Ae Haseeno, Race, Dum Maro Dum and Raaz 3. The hottie’s next release is Humshakals, Bang Bang and No Entry Mein Entry.

Bollywoodlife wishes the sultry actor a happy birthday and a great year ahead. Do send your wishes!
