Mahima Choudhary Biography

Its often hard to believe why a talent like Mahima Choudhary has not been able to give as many hits or as good a performance as was expected from her. With her last releases “Deewana” and “Dhadkan”, Mahima has almost confined herself to special appearance.

Mahima was born on 13th September, 1973 in Kewlona, Canada, with the birth name Ritu. She has a brother Siddharth and sis Akanksha. Mahima completed her graduation from Parle College, Mumbai.

She was a well known face in the modeling circuit and was based in Delhi. She featured in the Pepsi ad about a decade ago, when the self-styled showman, Subhash Ghai noticed her. With the obsession for the letter “M”, Ghai renamed her as Mahima.

He launched her opposite Shahrukh Khan in 1997 with the blockbuster film “Pardes”. This was a dream debut for any newcomer and she could not stop praising her mentor enough. But soon they split due to certain difference. Mahima was kicked out of “Taal” and in stepped the petite Aishwarya.

Mahima’s careerograph has had its ups and downs. She went on to do a string of films which failed to achieve commercial success. These were “Daag-The Fire”, “Kurukshetra”, “Pyaar Koi Khel Nahi”, “Dobara”, “Home Delivery” and “ Kuch Meetha Ho Jaye” to name a few.

Her image as a superstar had gradually taken a back seat when Mahima did a few good films like “Om Jai Jagdish”, “Baghban” and Ajay Devgan’s home production “Dil Kya Kare”. Unfortunately, these films did little to get Mahima the desired fame. Her offbeat film “Lajja” also went quite unnoticed even by the critics. Since a couple of years, Mahima has been quite aloof from Bollywood.

Mahima very recently gave birth to a healthy baby girl in Mumbai’s Leelavati Hospital. Apparently, she had married Bobby Mukherjee, an architect, in March this year ( she was already carrying his baby then ), in a quite ceremony held in Las Vegas attended by close relatives only. This has surely come as a shock to everybody and whether or not Mahima will continue doing films is the million dollar question now !
