Childhood and Early Life
Neha Dhupia was born on August 27, 1980 in Cochin. Born in a family with a defense background, Neha went to Naval Public School in Cochin. After some time, her father was transferred to Delhi. She came to the city with her family and completed her schooling from Army Public School, Dhaula Kuan. Thereafter, she went on to do her graduation, in History (Hons), from Jesus and Mary College, New Delhi.
Neha started her career with a TV serial Rajdhani, at the age of 19. It was during this time that she applied for the Miss India contest. Her elegance and aptitude won her the Miss India crown in 2002. She went ahead to the Miss Universe Competition and finished ninth. After making a mark in the modeling arena, she went a step ahead in the world of glitz and glamour and entered the elusive world of cinema. She did a couple of Telegu movies, before entering the world of Bollywood.
Neha's debut, as a main lead, in Bollywood came with Harry Baweja's 'Qayamat' (2003), in which she was paired with Ajay Devgan. She gained popularity after her bold role in the movie 'Julie', which also earned her the status of a 'sex symbol'.  While the publicity which she received was negative in nature, Neha is trying hard to retrieve the nice girl image.
