GOSSIP>> Hot models we want back, NOW (1)

 Anupama Verma

She never really was a ramp queen like all the models listed so far.

Then again, when it came to commercial modelling, there were fewer models more popular than Anupama Verma.

Pantene, Fair and Lovely, Siyarams, Verma was one of the hottest faces on the small screen, even having a handful of immensely popular music videos and a popular television serial to her credit.

More recently she was one of the 'housemates' in the first season of Bigg Boss where she hooked up with Aryan Vaid.

Sadly there's lesser and lesser we've been seeing of her though we suspect she can still pack a punch. After all if rumours are to be believed, she is the girl who came between the tennis stars Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupati.

Fleur Xavier

Voted recently as one of the 50 most beautiful women in India, Fleur Xavier is one of those who's made the transition from being a model to being an entrepreneur very smoothly.

Fleur used to be a ramp model before she decided to hang her stilettos and start her design company.

She graduated from the Parsons School of Design in New York and started FXda or Fleur Xavier Design Associates.

FXda has done the interiors of corporate offices, restaurants, high-end homes and fashion retail houses.

Jesse Randhawa

Should there ever be an Indian version of Dirty Dancing, Jesse Randhawa would probably be the obvious choice.

The 5'9 tall and sexy model who's also a professional salsa dancer, Jesse makes heads turn each time she walks into a party or on the ramp.
