Today, BollyCurry is celebrating the birthday of two actresses who have never followed the safe path in Bollywood, and they are none other than the exemplary Supriya Pathak and the gorgeous Bipasha Basu!

Supriya Pathak was born on 7th January, 1961 to Dina Pathak, who herself was a well known actress of the 80's. She is married to Bollywood and television actor and director, Pankaj Kapur and has a daughter and two sons of which one is her stepson, Shahid Kapur. Ratna Pathak Shah is her sister and her brother-in-law is Naseeruddin Shah, Ratna's husband. Pathak started her carrier with Kalyug in 1981 followed by many hits such as Vijeta (1982), Bazaar (1982), Mirch Masala (1985) and Gandhi (1982), in which she played the role of Gandhi's niece. She also starred in Raakh (1989), which received 3 National Film Awardsalthough it didn't do well in the box office, and in the blockbuster movie Shahenshah, as Amitabh Bachchan's sister. In the early 90's, she took a long break from movies to concentrate on her personal life and returned in 2005 with Sarkaar opposite Amitabh Bachchan, followed by Wake Up Sid (2009). Although Pathak has played many roles, be it in films or television, she is best known for her role in the television series Khichdi as Hansa Parekh. Recently, Pathak was seen in another popular television serial, Chhan Chhan, as the dominating mother-in-law and then in the recently-released Ram Leela (2013), a Sanjay Leela Bhansali film. Here's wishing this stellar lady a very happy birthday!

On the other hand, Bipasha Basu was born on 7th January, 1979 to a Bengali family in Delhi and studied at Apeejay High School. Basu was initially spotted by model Mehr Jessia Rampal at a hotel in Kolkata who told her to take up modelling, which she did. She became a successful model at the age of 17 and has won many beauty pageants since then. On her personal front, Basu dated Dino Morea from 1996 to 2002. She then dated actor John Abraham and shared a live-in relationship with him until early 2011 when they officially broke up. Basu's debuted in Ajnabee (2001), which earned her a Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut. It was an exemplary debut as in her first film itself Basu played a gray character in the form of a conniving wife who sided with her boyfriend (played by Akshay Kumar) to frame their do-gooder neighbours for her husband's murder. She then appeared as Sanjana in the horror flick Raaz (2002), which also did really well at the box office and got her a nomination for the Filmfare Best Actress award. Her next few films didn't do well, but she soon bounced back with the thriller Jism (2003), which did well at the box office and earned her appreciation for her good looks, bold role and seductive deep voice. She experienced a slump at the box office over the next few releases, but soon hit success again with No Entry (2005), Omkara (2006) and Dhoom 2 (2006) among other releases. She was then seen in Dhan Dhana Dhan Goal in 2007, alongside her then boyfriend, John Abraham. While, Goal was not on the list of popular movies, the song "Billo Rani" became a huge hit of the year. In 2008, she played the role of a successful supermodel in Bachna Ae Haseeno followed by an appearance in the song "Phir Milenge Chalte Chalte" from the movie Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi (2008). She has continued to experience success in her choice of movies, such as the comic role in All The Best: Let the Fun Begin! (2009), her somewhat villainous role in Raaz 3 (2012), and then the role of a single mother in Aatma (2013).
