Yana Gupta, first came into Bollywood through the song 'Babuji Zara Dheere Chalo' which was one of the first item numbers in Bollywood, in the early 2000's. The song caught up very quickly and people were taken aback by the songs visuals and lyrics. Yana Gupta, became well known just by that song and it ended up being a superhit.

Yana Gupta, who is of Czech origin, started modelling at the young age of 16 and was seen in several print and video commercials. Soon after, Yana Gupta became the brand ambassador for Lakme and has walked the ramp several times being a showstopper as well.
Apart from being the brand ambassador for Lakme, Yana Gupta has also been featured on the prestigious Kingfisher Calendar, and was a Calendar girl for three consecutive years in 2003, 2004 and 2005.
Despite of being a well known face in the industry, Yana Gupta was not given the role of a lead actress in any film, and has only entertained the audiences with peppy item numbers. We can't complain, as Yana was surely one of the best dancers and all her item numbers are an eye candy.
Talking about eye candy, Yana Gupta faced embarrassment of the worst kind during a 'children's charity event' where Yana sported a little black dress with no underwear beneath. Pictures of Yana with 'no underwear' spread like wildfire and people didn't know how to react, as it was not even considered as a 'wardrobe malfunction'.
Criticism came from all corners and several people called it as a "publicity stunt" to boost her career prospects. However, her Bollywood dreams came to a halt and Yana Gupta turned into an author with her book 'How To Love Your Body And Get The Body You Love' and has also released a music album.
