19th of November marks a special day in the Bolly calendar as it is the birthday of not one but  two tinsel town beauties, Zeenat Aman and Sushmita Sen. On afterthoughts, 'beauties' does seem rather modest a term!

Born in Mumbai this said date in the year 1951, Zeenat completed her education as a graduate from University of California, Los Angeles and later during her Bollywood career married a fellow actor Mazhar Khan and gave birth to two sons. Not only was she Runners Up for Miss India '70, but also the first ever Indian woman to win the title of Miss Asia Pacific in the international finals of the prestigious beauty pageant. Zeenat was an unprecedented and unorthodox trendsetter for the contemporary actresses of her time; one who chose to essay the roles of the modern urban women in a revolutionizing Indian society, two decades over into independence.

Starting her career as a reporter for Femina, Zeenat was introduced to modeling by her peers, who had witnessed she delivering her most prominent ad campaign for beauty brand Ponds. Taking a step into the film industry with the movie Hulchul, Zeenat acted in some some of Bollywood's popular classics including Ajnabee, Yaadon Ki Baarat, Don, and the highly controversial film Insaaf ka Tarazu. 

Zeenat Aman had made a great contribution to Indian cinema and will always be known as the one who changed the outlook in portraying Indian women.

Born to a Bengali family residing in Hyderabad, Sushmita graduated from college with a degree in journalism. She acquired the title of Miss India '94 and later proceeded to represent India in the international rounds where she went on to win the Miss Universe Pageant of 1994. Sushmita, fondly called by a larger audience as Sush, is the first ever Indian to be crowned as Miss Universe.

Entering Bollywood with her debut in the film Dastak, Sushmita acted under famous banners for popular movies including Biwi No.1,  Sirf Tum, Aankhein, Main Hoon Na, Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya, Varma Ki Aag, and etc. Proving her versatility on screen, Sushmita has played various roles ranging from a serious lawyer to that of a nurse. She has also acted in an English movie named Karma, Confessions and Holi. Some of her more recent films include Do Knot Disturb and Dulha Mil Gaya.

IN 2001, a newer nuance to Sushmita's character was witnessed by friends and competitiors alike - the human side - when she adopted little Renee as a single foster parent. Despite all the speculation that went into broaching the topic by contemporaries, humanitarians and media alike, Sush proved her mettle as a responsible mother, and eventually adopted another little baby girl Alisah who happens to share this special date of 19th November as her birthday too!

BollyCurry wishes Zeenat Aman, Sushmita Sen, and little Alisah a very happy birthday!
