bhaart (India) has the greatest remnants of the veDik lifestyle in the current kli-yug...meaning a lifestyle lived as per ved, shaasTR and DHARm as transmitted to mankind by creator bRHmH...so that mankind can live in harmony with the knowledge contained in these operating manuals of life....The veDik lifestyle highly revered, honoured and valued females who are life givers and life sustainers for their total beauty of aatmaa (soul), mind and body.....starting with raaDHaa of kRUSHn...A female is the shakti of a male as in raaDHaa-kRUSHn and thus however a male wants to think in a egoistic and male chauvinistic manner, a male is incomplete without a female .....as is documented in raamaayAN, mhaa-bhaart, DHARm-shaasTR and all puraaAN....

At Prajaapati Vishva Aashram Foundation (PVAF) we will document the vital role of women in veDik lifestyle as part of on-going veD study....and we will start of by drawing everybody's interest with the bhaartiy naari (women) who outshone their female kind on this planet earth and who are well known through Bollywood....we will start with a gujaraati naari (lady)...as posted on the SIFY PEOPLE AND PLACES web site.....

Miss India Who Made It


Juhi Chawla

Chirpy Chawla as she was called has been in the limelight for well over 15 years now. She became famous with her 1984 win at the Miss India contest. Movies came soon after with a film debut Sultanat in 1986. But it was with the 1989 film along with Aamir Khan Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak that Juhi became a star in her own right.

Her other movies with Aamir flopped but it was with another Khan, Shah Rukh that she gave her next smashing hit, Darr. She also won the Filmfare Best Actress trophy for Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke. In the 90s Juhi turned her attention to production. Shah Rukh Khan and Juhi went on co-found a production company `Dreamz Unlimited` along with Aziz Mirza.

She is married to industrialist Jai Mehta and is the mother of Jhanvi. She will be next seen in two off beat films, the Nagesh Kukunoor director Teen Dewarein and Jhankar Beats.



Namrata Shirodkar

She is Miss India 1993 and elder sister of onetime Bollywood actress Shilpa Shirodkar. After winning the Miss India title and fourth place at the Miss Universe pageant she decided to join Bollywood. Though she was never in the same league as the Aishwaryas and Sushmitas, Namrata was noticed recently for her role in Hathyar.

Though most of her films flopped like Mere Do Anmol Ratan and Hero Hindustani, with Vaastav Namrata`s career just took off. As a prostitute who gets married to Sanjay Dutt, her performance received good reviews. Pukar with Madhuri Dixit and Anil Kapoor got her some coverage. Her role of a young mother in Hathyar, the sequel to Vaastav got her noticed. Namrata can be seen in the forthcoming hyped Mahesh Manjrekar’s experimental film Pran Jaye Par Shaan Na Jaaye.

Sushmita Sen

The year was 1994 and 18-year-old Sushmita Sen gave India her first win in the Miss Universe contest. The dark horse had won the race. The 5’9” tall Sen-sation literally created waves but her entry into Bollywood, Dastak was a dismal failure. Considered too tall for a Bollywood heroine Sush went on to prove detractors wrong when she was noticed for her role as the other woman in the David Dhawan superhit Biwi No 1.

As her item numbers like the one from Fiza became superhits, Sush became hot property. On the personal front, she has adopted a baby Renee. Sushmita will be seen in the upcoming Mahesh Manjrekar multi-starrer Pran Jaaye Par Shaan Na Jaaye.

Aishwarya Rai

Aishwarya Rai or Ash as she is usually called first made news as the sexy woman clad in black asking Aamir Khan, "Hi! I`m Sanjana, have another Pepsi?” That was just the beginning, after innumerous ramp shows and TV commercials, Ash decided to run for the Miss India title. A last minute slip made her lose the title to dark horse Sushmita Sen. That very same year she made history as the winner and hot favourite at the Miss World Contest.

Bollywood beckoned and Ash made her debut with Mani Ratnam`s Tamil film Iruvar. With Aur Pyaar Ho Gaya, Aishwarya entered Hindi cinema. Alas, both the films turned cold turkey at the box-office. But Ash reigned when two of the biggest films of 1999 Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam and Taal sent the BO in a tizzy with its success. Ash had arrived.

After a relative lull, during which she did Mohabbatein, Josh, and Kandukondein Kandukondein Ash was back in a period role that of Paro in Devdas. In the meantime her off and on affair with Salman Khan was off for good. And coming up is none less important than India`s first IMAX film, Taj Mahal, where she plays Mumtaz. Ash has also been chosen as the Indian brand ambassador for the Swiss watch giant Longines.

Nafisa Joseph

She was all of 18 when she won the Femina Miss India contest in 1997. At the Miss Universe contest, her rather unconventional statement, that the biggest injustice done in the world would be to bring a child into it, and not offer it peace, made the judges sit up and listen.

In 1999, she was a judge for the MTV VJ Hunt. A week later she too got a call from MTV asking her to give a screen test to become a VJ. She did and was chosen to host `MTV Houseful` and `MTV Smirnoff Megamix`. She has been doing so ever since. Nafisa was also seen briefly in a television series called C.A.T.S that was based on the hit 70`s show `Charlie`s Angels`. Apart from being a model is an animal lover she actively works with PETA (People for Ethical Treatment of Animals).

She is now the Editor of a new fashion magazine called `Gurlz`. She also writes a column on animals for `The Times of India`, Bangalore. Nafisa has dreams of opening up her own production house or event management company in the future.

Priyanka Chopra

The 5th beauty to do win the title, Priyanka won the millenium Miss World contest at the age of 18. Coming from an Army background, she has been to the four corners of India from Leh and Ladakh in the north to Kerala in the south from Bombay in the west to Jamshedpur in the East.

After studying in Lucknow and Bareilly she went for further studies in the USA. She had decided to become a software engineer or a criminal psychologist when Miss World happened.

It was but natural for her to follow on her illustrious predecessors and make a debut in films. With the Southern film Tamizhan Priyanka made her acting debut. A theatre enthusiast Priyanka will be making her debut in Bollywood soon.
