Bipasha Basu is a Bengali model-turned-actress known for her sex symbol status. Since her entry into Bollywood, Bips, as she is known, has taken on roles that required much daring and baring, which was not common for a mainstream heroine.
Films such as Raaz and Jism brought her fame as a sultry siren and her acting talent was acknowledged in Corporate.
Bipasha has previously dated fellow models Milind Soman and Dino Morea. She was dating John Abraham for almost 10 years but the couple broke up in 2011. She has recently been linked to Josh Hartnett, her co-star in her Hollywood debut Singularity.
