Sushmita Sen can be easily called the most beautiful woman in India. She became the first Indian to be crowned Miss Universe in 1994. She was only 18.

She debuted with the film Dastak in 1996. She has done several films throughout her career but Main Hoon Na remains a fan favorite. She was last seen in Aarya, a thrilling web series on Hotstar that reminded the audience of her acting skills, beauty, and style.
