Kim Sharma

Kim Michelle Sharma (born 21 January 1980) is a Bollywood actress and model.

Kim was born in Ahmednagar, Maharashtra. She has 3 sisters. Kim did her schooling at St. Joseph's Convent in Panchgani. She then returned to her hometown and joined a junior college. Of her college days, she said 'Having studied in a boarding school, where most of the girls were from abroad, living and studying in Ahmednagar came as a culture shock'. While in her twelfth standard, she decided to quit studies. As one of the famous faces of Ahmednagar college, she was offered many fashion shows. Her liaison with cricketer Yuvraj Singh helped her remain in the limelight for sometime and after the controversial break up, her brand value dipped. After couple of duds including kudiyon Ka Zamana, Nehle Pe Dehla etc., she finally bid adieu to the industry by marrying NRI businessman from Kenya. She was last seen in Govinda starrer ‘Loot’.

On a trip to Mumbai, she auditioned for Close-Up toothpaste and was selected. She then appeared in Sunsilk, Pepsi, Tata Safari, Ponds, Fair & Lovely, Clean-n-Clear and Liril advertisements. She is also the brand ambassador of Olay Movies in India.

Sharma caught the eye of producer Aditya Chopra who signed her for his next directorial venture titled Mohabbatein. The film also marked the launch of other newcomers-Uday Chopra, Shamita Shetty and Preeti Jhangiani. Mohabbatein also starred superstars Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. It was a huge hit and started Kim's career in Bollywood.
