Rimi Sen turns 39 today. The actress had a short-lived film career but featured in some of the most amazing comedy movies. She is a talented actress, whose potential was not tapped into by the film industry.

Of course, her most talked-about film appearance has to be YRF”s Dhoom, where despite limited screentime, she made an impact.

She was also a contestant on the ninth season of the most controversial reality show, Bigg Boss. She regretted her decision almost immediately after entering the show. “I am venturing into direction next year so I am using ‘Bigg Boss’ as my base to connect with my fans again.
