New Delhi, Aug 8 (IANS) Bollywood actress Bipasha Basu, who featured in this year's hit "Race', was Friday appointed as the new brand ambassador of leading jewellery brand Gili.
'Diamonds are a girl's best friend and Gili offers a wide range of diamonds to choose from. I hope this association is amiable and mutually profitable,' Bipasha said in a press statement.
The actress has proved her mettle in films like 'Corporate' and 'Omkara' and will be seen romancing Bollywood's new entrant Ranbir Kapoor in 'Bachna Ae Haseeno'.

We are excited about having her on board as the new face for Gili,' said Choksi.
