Given her svelte frame and bold image, Bipasha Basu is surely a head-turner, but she says in her younger days, she wasn't considered pretty due to her dusky complexion.

"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. I think most people were surprised by the way I looked," Bipasha said on an upcoming episode of Big CBS Love's "India's Glam Diva".

The show brings together women from the entertainment and sports industry to compete as India's final choice of the most glamorous diva. Those in the competition include Kareena Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra, Vidya Balan, Aishwarya Rai, Katrina Kaif, Sonam Kapoor, Sunidhi Chauhan, Ekta Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha, Sania Mirza, Freida Pinto, Shruti Haasan and Bipasha.

The episode featuring Bipasha will be aired Sunday. A few facts about the actress were unveiled during the shoot.

The 33-year-old actually wanted to be a doctor, but gave up the plan after she fainted while attempting to dissect rats. She went on to be a successful model, and entered filmdom in 2001 with "Ajnabee".

She was recently seen in "Players", and is now gearing up for the release of romantic comedy "Jodi Breakers".

We are brown not white therefore our skin tone is bound to be brown!! WAKE UPP INDIANS!! Plus our skin tone is a blessing in because we are close to the equator and are exposed to sun and unlike North Americans 'gooras' are vunlerable to skin cancer. I say we rather prefer the beautiful natural skin tone than cancer!

Yes Bips that's the typical Indian mentality where every one expects girls to be fair and skinny, don't know when they are gonna come out of this thinking...
