Bollywood Actresses 7

More of the beautiful women of Hindi movies with Yana Gupta, Raveena Tandon, Dia Mirza, Negar Khan and more.

Here we are at my seventh (and most likely my last) Bollywood actress article.
I hope you have enjoyed reading these articles as much as I have enjoyed making them.

Yana Gupta

Yana Gupta

Bollywood actress Yana Gupta was actually born Jana Synková, on April 23rd, 1979 in Brno in the Czech Republic.
Yana is a variation of Jana, and she got her last name from marrying Indian painter Satyakam Gupta (they later divorced).
Before acting, Yana was an international model, working all over the world for companies like Calvin Klein, Victoria's Secret, Toyota, Honda and Sony.
Yana has only appeared in eight films since her debut in the 2003 Tamil film Dum.
Her first Bollywood appearance was as a dancer (item girl) in the 2004 film Rakht.
Actually, except for Rakht and 2007's Kaisay Kahein... , I think most of her films have been Tamil, Telugu or Bengali.
She recently appeared on Fear Factor - Khatron Ke Khiladi on Colors TV.

Negar Khan

Negar Khan

Negar Khan is a little different from the Bollywood actresses I have done entries on.
She was born in Iran, grew up in Norway and went to school in Australia and in 2005, she was deported from India for not having a work permit.
She rose to fame as an "Item Number" girl. An Item Number is a dance sequence that appears in a film that basically has nothing to do with the plot.
At one time "item girls" were frowned on, but several actresses in Bollywood have done them including stars like Madhuri Dixit, Karisma Kapoor, Tabu, Shilpa Shetty and Aishwarya Rai.
Negar recently turned up on 2009's Iss Jungle Se Mujhe Bachao (the Indian version of the British reality game show I'm a Celebrity…Get Me out of Here!) as a contestant.
She came in on Day 13, and was eliminated on Day 26.
Negar has done ten films so far, her latest being Jaanleva.
She also appeared in the Italian film, Vita smeralda.

Raveena Tandon

Raveena Tandon

Raveena Tandon was born on October 26th, 1974 in Mumbai, Maharashtra, India.
She is a Bollywood actress, producer and former model.
Besides Bollywood, she has appeared in Tamil and Telugu movies as well.
Raveena's first film was at the age on seventeen in 1991's Patthar Ke Phool starring Salman Khan.
For her role as Kiran in the film, she won the Filmfare Lux New Face Award.
Raveena has gone on to appear in over 60 films.
Her next project is the upcoming Bollywood movie, Aap Ke Liye Hum set for release in 2010.

Shamita Shetty

Bollywood actress Shamita Shetty is the younger sister of Shilpa Shetty.
Shamita was born on February 2nd, 1980 in Mangalore, India.
Shamita has gotten a lot of her fame from Item Numbers (her sister did them too).
She made her acting debut in the 2000 film, Mohabbatein which was a critical and commercial hit.
Shamita has gone on to appear in fourteen fims, her last two being 2008's Naan Aval Adhu and Hari Puttar.

Dia Mirza

Dia Mirza

Dia Mirza was born on December 9, 1981 in Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, India.
She is a former model and Bollywood actress.
Like a lot of other Bollywood actresses, Dia has ties to the Femina Miss India pageant. In 2000 she came in fifth place and became Miss India Asia-Pacific, coming in behind Gayatri Joshi (4th place, Miss India International), Lara Dutta (2nd place, Miss India Universe) and Priyanka Chopra (1st place, Miss India World).
For some reason there was no 3rd place Miss India Earth that year.
Anyway, Dia went on from there to debut in 2001's Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein (a remake of the Tamil film Minnale).
When she first started acting, Dia was pegged as an Aishwarya Rai look-alike.
Which I would think would be a huge compliment.
She has gone on to appear in almost forty movies, her latest being Shoebite, set for release in 2010.

Parveen Babi

Parveen Babi

The late Parveen Babi was absolutely stunning.
This beautiful woman was born on April 4th, 1949 in Junagadh, Gujarat, India and passed away on January 20, 2005, in Mumbai, Maharashtra, India.
She was one of the biggest Bollywood stars in the 1970s, making her film debut in 1973's Charitra.
This lead to her appearing in over fifty movies.
Her last film appearance was a special appearance in 1988's Akarshan.

Isha Koppikar

Bollywood actress Isha Koppikar ( I have seen it spelled Ishaa Koppikar and Eesha Koppikhar) was born on September 19th, 1976 in Mumbai, Maharashtra, India.
Isha started out as a model, doing work for companies like L'Oréal, Rexona, Camay and Coca-Cola.
She competed in the 1995 Femina Miss India pageant, but although she didn't win, she did win the Miss Talent Crown.
Her film debut was in 1998's Kaadhal Kavidai, a Tamil film. In her first film she co-starred with Prashanth Thyagarajan.
She went on to make several Tamil, Telugu and Kannada films before her Bollywood debut in the 200 film, Fiza.
Isha has made over forty films including the infamous Girlfriend that I mentioned in another Hub.
2009 will see her appearing in Har Pall, Haseena: Smart, Sexy, Dangerous and Shabri.
In 2010, she will be appearing in Don 2, the sequel to the 2006 film 2006 film Don - The Chase Begins Again, which was a remake of the 1978 film Don.
