Fans of the actress are undoubtedly excited for her new stage of life. The Bengali beauty, who has delighted fans for more than 20 years, is known not only for her breathtaking appearance and dance prowess but also for her commanding presence on film, which has brought her numerous blockbusters over the years.

Here is a look back at Bipasha Basu's life over the years as she prepares to become a mother.

Bipasha Basu is the second of three children; she was born in Delhi and was reared in Kolkata. According to a Rediff article, Bipasha's foray into the world of glamour and modelling was sparked by a chance meeting with supermodel Mehr Jessia in a hotel in Kolkata in 1996. The same year, Bipasha, being 17 years old, entered and won the Godrej Cinthol Supermodel modelling competition.

In addition to taking first place in the modelling competition, Bipasha Basu also drew the eye of Vinod Khanna, a legendary figure in Bollywood. In Himalaya Putra, the movie launching his son Akshaye Khanna, the seasoned actor planned to cast Bipasha Basu. However, Bipasha declined the opportunity because she felt she was too young to act in movies.

But Jism, an erotic thriller starring her and fellow model-actor John Abraham, whom she was also dating at the time, was the movie that made Bipasha Basu a household name. With movies like No Entry, Corporate, Dhoom 2, and Phir Hera Pheri to her credit, Bipasha Basu cemented her position as one of Bollywood's most sought-after heroines throughout the course of the following several years.

In addition, she became well-known for her unique dancing talents in movies rather than just her playing roles. Songs like Billo Rani from Dhan Dhana Dhan Goal and Beedi and Namak from Omkara became popular party songs and chart-toppers, adding to Bipasha Basu's steadily expanding fan base.

The couple called it quits in 2011 after dating actor John Abraham for a while. Bipasha Basu was the star of several films at the time, many of which were horror-themed. She first met actor Karan Singh Grover while working on the 2015 release Alone's set. The co-stars quickly started dating and wed in 2016 in a beautiful wedding.

Bipasha Basu has worked in Bengali, Tamil, and Telugu films in addition to Bollywood. She also had a significant part in the Belgian movie The Lovers.
