Ash from Delhi to Goa

They burst upon the big scene together in 1994, like the twin stars of the Gemini sky. Both went on to capture international beauty titles. Both went on to join the Bollywood rat-race as soon as their tenures as Miss Universe and Miss World ended. While Aishwarya Rai managed to bag a plum project opposite the then red-hot newcomer Bobby Deol, Sushmita Sen got a heroine-dominated movie opposite Sharad Kapoor. Not that it made any difference, as both their debut vehicles (“Aur Pyar Ho Gaya” and “Dastak”, respectively) sank without a trace! The flops piled up for both. Then came the glorious summer of 1999, and Ash’s “Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam” was a big hit. As was Sush’s “Biwi No.1.” “Taal” reinforced Ash’s position as the new dream-girl, while “Sirf Tum” re-iterated Sush’s claim as the sex goddess of the nation. And finally the Gemini twins had reached pole position. The new millennium has already started off on an auspicious note for the gorgeous twosome-while Ash picked up the Best Actress Award for HDDCS, Sush bagged the Best Suporting Actress at the same ceremony (the Videocon Screen Awards 1999-2000). Now is this just another coincidence, or proof of the indelible golden thread of fame that binds these twin souls together!
