Pix: Bipasha Basu's HOTTEST avatars
'I have a sexy, glamour doll image which I want to get out of. But if nothing else is works out, I shall cash in on it.'
Classic Bipasha Basu, even at the beginning of her career, she was unusually candid about her strategy.
Over the last decade or so, the stunner has done a variety of films with the best of banners and filmmakers but her steamy image hasn't diminished one bit. If anything, it's only gotten bigger and better.
Up next, the 33-year-old plays a desperate movie star using witchcraft to destroy her more successful rival (Esha Gupta) in Vikram Bhatt's horror sequel Raaz 3D.
But if the plot's spooky elements lead you to believe there's nothing glamorous about her role, you have another thing coming. Here's a peek into Bipasha's HOTTEST avatars over the years.
The Bong Bombshell flaunts her most prized (and toned) assets in a sequined bustier and boy shorts to grab eyeballs. Mission accomplished, girl!
