The vivacious Veena Malik became a household name in India when she appeared on the fourth season of the popular reality show Bigg Boss as one of the inmates.
While on the show, she made sure that she stood apart from the rest of the pack almost at all times. Even if that took flirting with fellow inmate Ashmit Patel or breaking into one of her titillating jigs in front of the mirrors in the house.
The actress is now apparently getting ready for a new reality show.

Pakistani actress Meera, who's real name is Irtiza Rubab, made her Bollywood debut with Soni Razdan's Nazar opposite Ashmit Patel.
The film didn't really work at the box office but the actress got into trouble back home for her kissing scene in the film.
Laila Khan accomplished what no one else would've either imagined or wished to do. She did lovemaking scenes with Rajesh Khanna in the aptly titles 2008 film Waafa: A Deadly Love Story.
The film was mostly talked about for the infamous intimate scenes. While Rajesh Khanna recieved a lot of flak for his performance, Laila must have probably been lauded for going to THAT extent to launch her Bollywood career!

Somy Ali is mostly remebered as one of Salman Khan's ex-girlfriends in Bollywood. She did star in a couple of forgettable films in the 1990s though- Andolan, Yaar Gaddar and Krishan Avtar being a few of them.
The former actress is now a model and a journalist.
