This year is turning out to be quite the scorcher. And we have Kambakkht Ishq to thank. Sajid Nadiadwala's May release stars Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor, and also also sees cameos from Hollywood stars like Sylvester Stallone, Brandon Routh and Denise Richards.
But the reason this film will be a scorcher is because the women here -- Kareena, Amrita Arora and Denise -- will strut their stuff in sexy swmisuits.
Kareena has done it before -- to great effect -- in Tashan, where she donned a lime green bikini. As we wait for Kambakkht Ishq to release, we cast a backward glance at Bollywood's
heroines, who sizzled in bikinis.
Ilene Hamann in Rog
Okay, technically this South African beauty isn't a desi girl. But her debut in Pooja Bhatt's 2005 thriller Rog starring Irrfan Khan, made sure she was noticed. After all, nobody can fill a bikini quite like this 24-year-old model.
The film was forgettable but not the women -- Celina in her red bikini, and Hansika Motwani and Kim Sharma.
Mugdha Godse in Fashion
When Mugdha sashayed in this metallic two piece in Fashion, she looked hot and made sure her Bollywood debut would not go unnoticed.
Minissha Lamba in Kidnap
The 24-year-old said she had to work hard on her body in order to look good in this white bikini. Well, it looks like all the hard work paid off. It's a pity that the scene barely lasted a minute.
Neha Dhupia in Julie
The 29-year-old dropped most of her clothes for this 2004 drama to reveal a very shapely figure.
What's bold and beautiful with a pout to match? Bips, of course. The actress, who turned 30 this year, looked toned in an itsy bitsy bikini while cavorting on the beach in a song in Dhoom 2.
Amisha Patel in Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic
When Amisha wore this hot bikini, Saif Ali Khan -- the object of her seductions in TPTM -- didn't raise an objection. Neither did most of the audience.
