She's a top model who wanted to become a lawyer.
Intrigued by the fashion world, however, this gorgeous Bengali decided to become a model and did so at the age of 18.
Since then, this dimpled beauty has appeared in numerous print and television commercials. She has also appeared in music videos.
An economic graduate from Jawaharlal Nehru University, she was the winner of the Society Achiever's Award for glamour in 2002.
