Initially Bips wanted a career in medical sciences but her aversion for dissections made her opt for chartered accountancy. However, in 1996, she met well-known model Mehr Jessia in Kolkata; the latter advised Bipasha to take part in the Godrej Cinthol Supermodel contest. She eventually participated, and won the contest.She later came into the limelight when she won the Ford`s Supermodel of the World Contest and was named Tulips Ms Super Vivacious in the same event at the remarkably young age of 17. The Ford Company also flew Basu to New York, where she had a successful modeling career.
