Bipasha Basu net worth: Bipasha Basu is an Indian film actress and a former model, who has a net worth of $15 million. Bipasha Basu, aka "Bips", is an Indian beauty who started her professional career as a model, but then ventured into films and made her name as an actress in Telugu, Bengali and Tamil language films. The fact that her debutant role as a foe in the 2001 movie Ajnabee earned her a Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut, was a clear sign that she made the right choice. However, Basu's commercial success came after her appearance in Raaz (2002), which was followed by more media exposure once she rendered a bold part in the erotic 2003 movie Jism. Next, she played parts in major movies such as No Entry(2005), Phir Hera Pheri (2006), Dhoom 2 (2006) and Race (2008), and in movies like Apharan (2005), Corporate (2006) and Bachna Ae Haseeno (2008) that earned her critical claim and gave her a chance for several award nominations. She has been nominated twice for the Filmfare Award for Best Actress and Supporting Actress, each time together with a nomination for the Filmfare Award for Best Performance in a Negative Role. After spending few years off the big screen (2009–2011), she made a comeback with her appearance in Raaz 3 (2012), which was both a commercial success and critical praise. Having accomplished all of the above, Basu has become a leading contemporary Bollywood actress. Actually, she has been known as a "sex symbol," thanks to her bold on-screen performance and honest confessions of her private life.
