While almost every Hollywood actress right from the feisty Pamela Anderson to the scintillating Angelina Jolie has showed us everything they have got, the Bollywood cine-goers haven’t been that lucky. However, subtlety does more magic than in-your-throat excessiveness and that’s precisely why men feel the tickle when some of the gorgeous B-town actresses slip into bikinis and play hide-n-seek with their bodies.
Here are 7 Bollywood actresses who have wowed us in their swimsuit avatars striking the right chord with our basic instinct:
1. Bipasha Basu: The bootilicious Bong Bombshell grabbed all eyeballs when she scorched the screen in ‘Dhoom 2’ slipping into an itsy bitsy bikini. Her dare-bare character in a slew of films made her ‘Jism’ one of the most desirable ones amongst the Indian men. And those who are looking for more of her newly toned body can look forward to the upcoming ‘Players’ whose promos have already stirred male fancies as Bipasha raises the temperature in a red hot bikini.
2. Anushka Sharma: Anushka, no doubt, has been one of the fastest rising female celebs in our Bollywood den. Just a handful of films old, she has already grabbed some big awards and lots of male attention with her two pieces in ‘Badmaash Company’ and ‘Ladies vs. Ricky Bahl’. And her supple, soft body is bewitching!
3. Kareena Kapoor:
This is one Kapoor girl who has had no qualms about locking lips or donning bikinis. In ‘Tashan’, she raised eyebrows with her minuscule lime green bikini while in ‘Ashoka’ it was all about those skimpy historic costumes. She,simply, looked delicious!
4. Aishwarya Rai: Aishwarya hasn’t donned a full-fledged bikini but her swimsuit act in ‘Dhoom 2’was one of the most talked about act in the tinsel town. And with a streamlined body, she left her male followers in frenzied euphoria. And one certain Abhishek got smitten!
5. Amisha Patel: This doll-like actress who was sinking into oblivion tried to revive her career by draping a bamboozling swimsuit for the song ‘Lazy Lamhe’ opposite Saif. While her career didn’t quite lift, her fetching curves found a permanent place in the history books.
6. Priyanka Chopra: Piggy Chops wore that epic golden swimsuit for her ‘Dostana’ beach scene and came out with a watershed moment. John & Abhishek had a whale of a time while viewers were left breathless and begging.
7. Sharmila Tagore: Turning the clock back to the 60s, we would like to bring back memories of Bollywood’s bold moment when Sharmila took the film world by storm with her swimsuit act in ‘An Evening in Paris’ and left an indelible mark on the viewers’ minds. Unlike the modern day’s vulgarity, her scene was shot aesthetically and never had a hint of indecency.
Some other actresses who contributed to global warming with their hot quotient include the marauding Mallika Sherawat, the classic Zeenat Aman, the violin-playing Celina Jaitley, the ‘Julie’ girl Neha Dhupia, the leggy Deepika Padukone and the dream-hacker Shilpa Shetty.
