Sonali Raut, 2010
This sexy aspiring actress (yes, she's Ujjwala Raut's younger sister) was featured in last year's calendar. Needless to say, she sizzled enough to take our collective breath away!
She's been a model for quite some time now and is bound to make her Bollywood debut anytime soon
Poonam Pandey, 2011
This dish is clearly not meant for everyone. Some love her for wanting to strip after India's Cricket World Cup triumph, whereas the rest consider her an attention-starved struggling model who really needs to shut up!
One thing's for certain though--she's got all of us talking about her! Including our good friend kamaal R khan, who tweeted recently that she had a "dirty ***." As for how he knows, you'll have to ask him
Himarsha Venkatsamy, 2010
This South African of Indian origin was featured in the 2010 calendar. Himarsha, a former medical student, is a native of Durban and decided to pursue modelling to do justice to her slender 5'8" frame.
We're truly glad she chose this career path as that figure would be totally wasted under surgical scrubs!
Esha Gupta, 2010
This former beauty queen represented India in Miss International back in 2007. Esha Gupta is now slated to appear in a couple of Bollywood movies next year.
We can't wait to watch her strut that stuff on the big screen--and hopefully, she'll feature in a couple of item numbers too
Deepika Padukone, 2006
Before she went all 'Bollywood Bigtime', Deepika Padukone was a seasoned model. She posed for the swimsuit calendar back in 2006 and made several heads turn in the process.
Flash forward five years, and she's one of the biggest superstars in B-town. The calendar was undoubtedly a great launch pad for her career
Anjali Lavania, 2011
This 5'9" model/actress is a native of Mumbai. She has previously modelled for several big brands like Pantaloons, Titan and Mahindra and has also been featured in photo spreads for magazines like Instyle, Elle and Marie Claire.
However, the crowning glory of her career thus far was when she was named one of the 50 Most Desirable Women of 2010 by the Times of India
Angela Jonsson, 2011
Best known for having dated Ranbir Kapoor, this 20-year-old hottie is now trying to make it big in Bollywood, thus attempting to fulfill the ultimate model-turns-aspiring-actress cliche.
This daughter of an Icelandic father and Manglorean mother certainly has the exotic genes that seem to wow B-town bosses these days and we're inclined to believe we'll be seeing a lot more of her in the years to come
