This green eyed Bombay girl is unarguably the most successful beauty queens in recent times. This erstwhile model won the title of Miss World in 1994 and was immediately flooded with offers for films.
Ash as she is popularly called was an architect student before she started out as a model. She was first noticed in a cola ad where she co-starred with Aamir Khan.
Her foray into Bollywood, attracted mixed reaction as the popular belief was that "models can't act". After a few false starts and not-so-impressive roles, she came up with her first hit "Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam" followed by "Taal". Now a Box-office queen, she is constantly experimenting with her roles. The latest being "Hamara Dil Aapke Paas Hai". Her sensitive portrayal of a rape victim has won her critical acclaim
