PIX: Bollywood heroines smoulder in red hot gowns

Karisma Kapoor is returning to films with Vikram Bhatt's Dangerous Ishq this year.

In the film's first look that was released recently, the yummy mum-of-two flaunts her toned body in a flaming red gown with a thigh high slit.

While there's no doubt Karisma still looks youthful and striking today, there is something irresistable about the colour red.

Here's looking at other Bollywood gals, who rock the red gown.

Bipasha Basu

Bipasha Basu wore this bold cutout number to the IIFA awards in 2007 but the memory of it refuses to fade away.

Showing off her washboard abs, Bips' look was an instant hit.

Deepika Padukone

Deepika Padukone was a complete knockout in this red Gauri and Nainika gown when she attended the birthday party of choreographer Ganesh Hegde last year.

Anushka Sharma

Anushka Sharma was quite the stunner as she sashayed down the ramp in a Wendell Rodricks creation at the Blender's Pride fashion tour last year.

The thigh-high slit, ruffles around the neckline and those delish yellow heels were a huge draw.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

An international red carpet veteran, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was a tease in a plunging neckline as she attended the premiere of her Hollywood film The Pink Panther 2 at the 59th Berlinale film festival in 2009.

Kareena Kapoor

The lovely and luscious Kareena Kapoor became the first woman to grace the cover of men's magazine GQ in 2010.

She wore a red one-shouldered gown for the shoot and struck a seductive pose. We're sure that edition must have sold a lot of copies.

Sameera Reddy

Sameera Reddy poured her curves in a red strapless gown for Stardust awards in February this year.

The chunky jewellery added to the glam look.

Ameesha Patel

Ameesha Patel loves her curves and she loves to flaunt them even more. She wore a strapless gown to a Blender's Pride event last year.

Brownie points to her though for being subtle about it for once!

We round off the list with Dia Mirza, who also chose to wear a red gown on the poster of her film Acid Factory, like Karisma.
