Bollywood’s original item girl Bipasha Basu celebrates her birthday today. Although, you’d be disguised for the first time you look at her but the reports say she turns 30 today.

Bipasha has always enjoyed a special place in Bollywood. She entered the industry as a curvaceous bong bombshell and she re-wrote the rules of showing skin on the screen. Her movies like Jism and Raaz were instant hits and the turn she took from being a supermodel to an actress completely paid off.

“I was never meant to be beautiful. I was a short, dark and round girl. Nobody thought I was pretty at all. Cruel jokes have been made about it, but that was fine.”

On the personal side, her relationship with John Abraham is still going very strong. There have been some hiccups but the two are inseparable. While the lady is not known to throw lavish parties at her birthday, she might be interested in a quite dinner-date with the hunky actor. I wouldn’t be surprised if she devotes her time for charity work today.

Basu is currently working on two projects: Pankh and Lamha, both of which are small budget movies.
