Read the story of Bipasha Basu’s Diary Portrait here.
And here’s the portrait in question.
Read about Bipasha Basu here.
She’s known for her bold roles, her item numbers, and her relationship with John Abraham (until about a year ago, they were together.) The caricaturist thinks that she’s one of the most beautiful women actors in Bollywood.

If you don’t believe the Tom Riddle story, here’s another one.
Last year I was at a stationery store buying a clutch-pencil (which by the way, is my favorite drawing instrument.) I don’t know how and why, the salesman thought that I’d be interested in some terribly expensive drawing pencils. I looked at this set of twelve pencils, checked the price, did a quick calculation, and decided that I wasn’t going to be fooled into buying pencils that would cost me a dollar fifty per piece. Ten minutes later, I left the store with 12 Derwent Water Color Pencils. The pencils came home and went straight into my drawing materials cupboard that is accessed about once a year. I remained loyal to my clutch-pencil. One of these days when I am feeling less possessive about it, I’ll shoot a picture and show you this beautiful Rotring pencil that’s been my constant companion for the last five years.
To make a long story short, those pencils stayed in the cupboard, until about a week ago, when I needed some yellow stickies and for some reason I thought that if I dived in deep enough into that treasure chest of a cupboard, I’d find them. So I dived in, and came up with the stickies and…that box of Derwent Pencils.
The newspaper that lay on the table had Bipasha’s picture in an ad, and my diary lay next to the newspaper. This is how everything came together, and I ended up drawing Bipasha’s portrait in my diary.
awesome! great art!
Amazing drawing! I’m not familiar with this person, but the drawing is gorgeous!!! 😀
Glad you liked the portrait. Bipasha Basu is one of the Top Bollywood Heroines (The Indian Indian film-industry is affectionately known as Bollywood…after, of course, Hollywood.)
Great job Shafali! I don’t know what she really looks like (I will have to google her to find out) but you sure made her beautiful! Glad you finally broke out those wonderful pencils.
Thanks Nancy 🙂 She’s beautiful indeed. I’ll show you the original image when we talk on Monday.
