Birthday Special: Bipasha Basu's FABULOUS desi avatars

We celebrate Bipasha Basu's 34th birthday by looking through her fabulous traditional outfits.

Bipasha Basu, who took Bollywood by storm with her unabashed sexuality on screen and a body that could carry off daring outfits with commendable ease, turns 34 today, January 7.

Seen mostly in urbane, modern characters in her films, Bipasha made showing skin in Hindi films mainstream, often with western outfits like mini skirts and bikinis.

That said, the actress is quite a pro when it comes to pulling off desi avatars too.

Case in point: This absolutely breathtaking shot of her from the 2010 IIFA awards, in all her desi glory.

The red bindi never looked more enticing than on her.
